Midlands Rugby Player Announced As Contestant On Dancing With The Stars

Jordan Conroy will join Gráinne Seoige, Neil Delamere and Aengus Mac Grianna on the dancefloor.

A midlands rugby player is taking part in the next series of Dancing with the Stars.

Tullamore's Jordan Conroy will be hoping he can lift the glitterball trophy.

He's joining fellow Offaly man Neil Delamere to show off his moves when the show returns in January. 

Matthew MacNabb from Love Island, Grainne Seoige,  and Aengus MacGrainna are also set to hit the dancefloor. 

The 27-year-old says: "I'm really excited to put my dancing skills to the test and looking forward to swapping out rugby boots for the shiny dancing shoes! It will definitely be a change of scenery, I can't wait to have fun with it and learn different dances - I do love a good boogie! I have to say there's a winning mentality and I'm in to win!"
