It didn't take long for Johnny to dazzle us with his incredible footwork and body movements on Dancing With The Stars Ireland, and the further he got in competition - the more that bad boy image waltzed its way right out of our heads.

We all witnessed how honest and hardworking the man is and now, the DWTS finalist wants to use his skills to help raise money for the Irish cancer via Today FM's Dare To Care. His professional partner Emily is all-in too.

And although there is no word on what exactly they will be doing, we have no doubt it will be like Julian Benson - "Box Office"!

After his dad sadly passing away with stage four cancer at the beginning of March, Ward wants to shine up those dance shoes and spread some more positivity.

Speaking on Dermot and Dave, he says;

we kinda took that as a sign, obviously with everything that happened, and was like "let's do this" and also, I've really missed dancing

The 31-year old reveals what his dad John said to him when he told him he wasn't continuing with the show;

he swore at me and he argued with me and he said "please don't do this, in fact, use it as an inspiration and do this for me"
