And other showbiz

Jake Carter  has won Dancing with the Stars with his professional partner Karen Byrne in the final on RTÉ One last night

He lifted the glitterball trophy after beating Anna Geary and Deirdre O'Kane in the final. It didn't half drag on, did it?! However, people must really love watching dancing as Ireland's Got Talent crowned Cork dancers RDC their winners on Saturday night. Two other dance acts, Xquisite and FKFT, were the runners-up in Saturday night's final, which was decided solely by the public vote.

 

Speaking of dancing - Simon Cowell's entertainment company is to produce a new talent series for the BBC – called The Greatest Dancer.

The corporation's announced its first-ever partnership with the producers of ITV's flagship Saturday night shows, The X Factor and Britain's Got Talent.

The show will see dancers from across all genres compete to try and be named the best in the UK.

 

 

Baby joy for Kathryn Thomas! She gave birth to a little girl called Ellie last week and herself and her fiancé are absolutely over the moon – congrats Kathryn! And Declan Donnelly and his wife Ali are expecting their first baby, which he confirmed last night after a really difficult couple of weeks for both of them, career-wise. Congrats!
