In what is looking like a fierce line-up, it's hard to tell who will follow in the footsteps of previous winners Aidan O'Mahony, Jake Carter and our very own Mairéad Ronan, to lift the glitterball trophy in 2020.
The Ian Dempsey Breakfast Show gave DWTS judge Brian Redmond a call to learn more about this year's dance-tastic spectacle.
Redmond reveals why he thinks 5-time All-Ireland winning (former) Kilkenny hurler Aidan Fogarty will put the other contestants to the pin of their collars;
I seen a little bit of one of the promo bits and Aidan Fogarty...he can move a little bit, and I think if he gets that GAA support behind him...he could be in with a shout
He also explains why he may have to quickstep his way around Brian Dowling and Michael Carruth.
Dancing with the Stars airs Sunday, January 5th @6:30pm on RTÉ One.
Our first live show is this Sunday and it’s genetlemen first!
Here is the rundown of what songs and dances our fab five guys will be grooving to!
