Buncrana star Grainne Gallanagh will be making some big moves this week as she switches partners on Dancing with the Stars Ireland.

All couples will swap their dancing partners for this week’s show, which is also switching days to air on Saturday, as the election count takes place on Sunday.

Grainne will be paired with pro dancer Pasquale La Rocca and they will be doing a Rumba to Ed Sheeran’s hit ‘Beautiful People’.

The Former Miss Universe Ireland was on fire last week as she topped the leaderboard with her regular partner Kai Widdrington. The pair’s contemporary ballroom dance to Sia’s Unstoppable wowed the judges and earned her 27 points.

Watch the stunning performance from Grainne’s Instagram here:


Grainne will be calling on Donegal to support her once more when voting lines open again on Saturday. Like the elections, every vote counts!

Dancing with the Stars are setting a new precedent with the couple switch-up this weekend too, as the show will introduce two same-sex pairings for the first time.

Big Brother star Brian Dowling will borrow Grainne’s partner Kai Widdrington while RTE2fm DJ Lottie Ryan will be dancing with pro Emily Barker.

Tune in to Dancing with the Stars Ireland on RTE One on Saturday at 6.35pm.
