Dancing With The Stars hunk Jordan Conroy says Gráinne Seoige was like 'second mammy'
"I'm mammied by everyone, I'm mammied by hair and make-up and Gráinne was the one that listened to me"
Dancing With The Stars hunk Jordan Conroy has opened up about his devastation that Gráinne Seoige was eliminated from the show in last Sunday's dance-off with him as she was like a 'second mammy' to him.
"It is sad seeing people going, that's the horrible part of the show because I really didn't want to go up against Gráinne because she was my favourite in it," he tells the Sunday World.
"I literally spent every minute in make-up and hair with her chatting about her about loads of things.
"When we both ended up in the dance-off I was really saddened by that because I didn't want any of us to go, especially Gráinne.
"I'm mammied by everyone, I'm mammied by hair and make-up and she (Gráinne) was the one that listened to me.
"I'm a big mammy's boy in there, so everyone is like my mammy in there but especially Gráinne, who was like a second mammy to me."
Despite getting the maximum 30-point score, rugby star Jordan (27), from Tullamore, Co. Offaly, ended up in the bottom two - but wasn't surprised.
"Because of going from the week before when Erica and Misty were in the bottom two, two great dancers, I was kind of going 'you know what, expect the unexpected' so in a way I had a tiny bit of a feeling... That's just the way it goes.
"Maybe the people at home thought because I got such a high score I'd be safe but it didn't go my way."
Tonight, he will be doing a samba to Magalenha by Sergio Mendes.
Dancing With The Stars is on RTÉ ONE at 6.30pm.
