RTÉ 2FM’s Carl Mullan joins Dancing With The Stars line-up

The ninth celebrity to join the line-up of Dancing With The Stars series six has been revealed as none other than the hilarious Carl Mullan from RTÉ 2FM.

Carl is best known for hosting RTÉ 2FM Breakfast with Doireann Garrihy and Donncha O’Callaghan, as well as for his funny Instagram and TikTok videos, where he regularly goes viral with his humorous takes on everything from Ryanair to the Irish weather. 

Speaking earlier today to confirm the brilliant news, Carl explained, “The only thing doing somersaults right now is my stomach – I’m a combination of a bag of nerves but also absolutely buzzing!”.

“It’s a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity and I can’t wait to get going. It’s completely outside my comfort zone, I’ve never done any form of dancing before, but I’m determined to get my head down and do everything possible to make sure my partner and I get all the way to the final!”.

Speaking on Instagram, Mullan also said, “BUZZING to be part of the Dancing With The Stars Class of 2023. This is pretty much as far out of my comfort zone as I ever have, or probably ever will be, but I’m so up for this and will give it EVERYTHING”.

“And before you ask…no I haven’t a clue how to dance but that won’t stop me trying and giving every second of this socks”.
