Aslan's Billy McGuinness and one of the greatest amateur riders of all time Nina Carberry have been revealed as the two newest Dancing with the Stars contestants.

As well as the glitz, the glam, the spray tan and rising to the challenge, Billy told Ryan Tubridy this morning about how the music industry has been hit by the recent restrictions where the government had cut gigs capacity by half.

"The three Vicar Street gigs they were sold out, we had to cancel them and put them back on sale at 50 per cent. You have people travelling from the UK and America and everyone coming in to see Aslan for Christmas. And it's not a nice thing to do - they have no tickets."

"Your fee is double straight away because you have to pay your crew. Yeah, yeah, twice as hard for the same fee, for the same fee when you do two."

Nina told Ryan about the impact of reduced capacity for horse racing and how her dancing feet are set for the experience.

"It's the hardest thing I have ever done in my whole life. The last two weeks, I have just no, no dance in me at all... It's one of the toughest things I have ever done in my life"
