When we come to think of it, Daniel O'Donnell and Peter Andre have a lot more in common than people might realise.

As well as being fairly nimble on their feet, they obviously know how to carry a tune or two and are, most importantly, adored by mammies and grannies the length and breadth of the UK and Ireland,

So, when we stumbled upon this snap of the pair posing for a photo before appearing on Loose Women last week, we couldn't help but imagine the mania – sorry, insania – which would ensue if that pair decided to join forces and release a duet.

Sharing the snap on Twitter in recent days. Daniel's wife Majella wrote: "Great to chat up with @MrPeterAndre"

That's right, ladies. Not 'CATCH up with' or 'chat TO', but 'chat up with'…

Looks like Majella came over all funny surrounded by that slick pair… and who wouldn't, in fairness?


To a true Irish mammy, Daniel O'Donnell is somewhere up there with Beyoncé in terms of superstardom.

So we can understand why B&B owner Anne Sheerin had a bit of a fangirl moment when Daniel and his wife Majella arrived at her front door.

Anne spots the Donegal heart-throb driving toward her house and has THE most adorable meltdown while her husband tries his best to calm her.

"He's here! Oh dear, oh dear," she says while frantically waving and trying to fix her hair at the same time.

While we don't actually get to see what goes down when Anne and Daniel meet for the first time, we're betting it is comedy gold.

As part of a new series for UTV Ireland, Daniel is checking out B&Bs around the country – but Majella says not every reaction has been as out-there as poor Anne's.

"You could see that some were over-awed with Daniel and some weren’t, but all were equally welcoming," she said.

Daniel and Majella's B&B Road Trip starts on UTV Ireland next Monday October 26 at 8pm.


We hoped he might go all the way… but this evening Daniel O'Donnell became the third celebrity to be voted off Strictly Come Dancing

The Donegal crooner had been one of the favourites from the outset but he and his professional dance partner Kristina Rihanoff were ultimately eliminated following a tense dance-off against Kirsty Gallacher and Brendan Cole. 

Still, the 53-year-old was in reasonably good spirits afterwards. 

Speaking to presenters Claudia Winkleman and Tess Daly, he lauded Kristina's dance talents and also went on to wish the remaining contestants the best of luck in the competition.

And Kristina took to Twitter after the show had finished to publicly praise Daniel. "So glad I got an opportunity to get to know a great person," she stated.

Mr O'Donnell and Ms Rihanoff had earlier danced to Frank Sinatra's Fly Me To The Moon. A total of 13 couples now remain in the contest.

Strictly Come Dancing returns on Saturday 24 October at 6.35pm, with the results show on Sunday 25 October at 7.15pm on BBC One.



Well now, let this be a lesson to anyone who dares to suggest Daniel O’Donnell is anything other than a national treasure.

Daniel’s performance at the Rose of Tralee was exactly what his fans have come to know and love about him. Except perhaps for a few interesting dance moves.

Ocean FM presenter Niall Delaney made the epic mistake of suggesting that during his recent Rose of Tralee performance, Daniel may have been singing out of tune.

Angry fans were quick to call in and debate the topic with the presenter on his North West Today radio show.

There was one particular caller however who put Niall in his place very quickly.

Ita was not impressed by the insinuation that Daniel was to blame for any less-than stellar performances and insisted that Niall apologise.

As a singer herself she wanted to know how Niall could accuse Daniel of an out of tune performance if he had no experience in the field. When she asked Niall how many times he had performed live and Niall said it “doesn’t make a difference”, Ita was very nearly fuming.

A friend of Daniel since he was 11 years of age, apparently, Ita was not going to take this lightly.

"I’m not your average people who ring you up," she informed Niall before shutting down his interruption, “When I’m talking- you listen!” We are listening Ita, trust us. 

And we thought the One Direction fans were passionate…
