At least eight other stars are due to be unveiled over the coming weeks.

Judge Julian Belson is rumoured to be giving the new series a miss, and is set to be replaced by Brian Dowling’s dancer husband Arthur Gourounlian.

The news that DWTS stars is returning to our screens will thrill fans, after last year’s season was axed due to Covid.

Missy Keating has been living with her dad Ronan and his wife Storm for the past several months in England, where she is pursuing a career as a model.

The Malahide native has also tried her hand at singing, auditioning for BBC’s The Voice, and has acted too, appearing in a couple of small Irish films.

Missy is also known for her racy Instagram posts, in which she sets pulses racing by stripping down to her smalls.

Aengus Mac Grianna worked as a newsreader for RTÉ for over 20 years, taking voluntary redundancy in 2018 and then going on to study in college.
