The wait has ended, the final three contestants who will be taking part in RTÉ One's hit show Dancing With The Stars have been revealed.

Ryan Tubridy was joined on The Late Late Show couch by legendary rugby hero Peter Stringer, country music goddess Cliona Hagan and Demi Isaac Oviawe, star of The Young Offenders, who each confirmed their new roles on the dance show.

Each of them spoke of their nerves and anticipation in terms of joining the show, which begin in the new year.

Speaking about his participation in the hit television show Peter Stringer said: “I’ve never danced on a dance floor before so going from that to dancing in front of a live audience will be a whole new experience for me. I’m nervous but up for the challenge!”

Country music star Cliona Hagan said: “I’m very excited, nervous, and a little apprehensive, but overall I’m feeling great and can’t wait to see how far I can push myself.”

The Young Offender star Demi Isaac Oviawe spoke of her desire to empower black Irish women: 

“I’m so excited to be involved in this year’s show. I can’t wait to get started and learn a new skill. I’m hoping that I can be a role model for young black women in Ireland and maybe some might even follow in my dance steps!”

The full line up for series three of Dancing with the Stars is officially: Fred Cooke, Cliona Hagan, Demi Isaac Oviawe, Clelia Murphy, Mairead Ronan, Johnny Ward, Eilish O’Carroll, Denis Bastick, Darren Kennedy, Holly Carpenter and Peter Stringer

Jennifer Zamparelli and Nicky Byrne are the duo who will present the newest series of the show, which airs on RTÉ One for 12 weeks from Sunday 6 January.

The eleven celebrities will pair up with professional dance partners to step out of their comfort zones and compete to snatch the glitter ball trophy.

Brian Redmond, Loraine Barry and Julian Benson return again this year to judge the competition with the help of the viewing public.



Congratulations are in order today for former Irish rugby star Peter Stringer and wife Debbie O’Leary who are expecting their first child together.

The expectant mother took to Instagram to announce that she was expecting the pair’s baby in a few weeks.

“These are such a great purchase for expectant mamas,” she said on Instagram.

“I know I’ve been using mine so much over my last few weeks.”

The couple have been together for nine years and married back in 2015.


The former Ireland international rugby star and his fiancé of one year tied the knot day in Marbella.

The pair got engaged this time last year in Barbados. Peter got down on one knee at the five-star hotel Sandy Lane – incidently the same place where Tiger Woods married his now ex-wife Elin Nordegren in 2004.

The former model from Cork and wore a beautiful tight-fitting dress with a fishtail and long veil. She also shared a photo of her fabulous LK Bennett shoes on Instagram.

Her new husband and former Munster player chose navy for his suit, and a pale pink tie. The bridesmaid wore a lust-worthy pair of Jimmy Choo heels with her beige below-the-knee dress.

Nadia Forde, Paul O’Connell and Donncha O’Callaghan were among the high-profile guests who joined the happy couple for their Big Day. 

While the couple have decided to postpone their honeymoon until later in the year, they will be spending the rest of the week enjoying their newly wedded bliss in sunny southern Spain.
