2FM entertainment presenter Lottie Ryan and Fair City star Ryan Andrews have been confirmed as the next two celebrities to quickstep their way on to Dancing with the Stars on RTÉ One in the New Year.
Following much speculation it was confirmed live on The Ryan Tubridy Show on RTÉ Radio 1 this morning that Lottie and Ryan are heading for the dance floor this January.
Speaking about the show, Lottie gushed, "I could not be more excited. I think it's going to be a once in a lifetime incredible adventure."

Ryan commented; “I’m absolutely delighted to be part of the show. It's something that I’ve always wanted to do. I’m a Strictly fan from years and years ago – myself my Mam and Dad always watch it."
He added, "It’s an amazing bunch of people, an amazing show and brilliant contestants so I think we’re in for a great run."
Lottie and Ryan join Glenda Gilson on this year's show. The next celebrity dancer will be revealed tomorrow, Tuesday, December 3 on Jennifer Zamparelli on RTÉ 2FM.
