Renault sponsors RTE's Dancing with the Stars

Renault Ireland will sponsor Ireland's first ever Dancing with the Stars which begins on 8 January 2017 on RTE One, writes Trish Whelan.

The marque's New Renault Megane Grand Coupe will feature in stings around the show which sees 11 well known faces take to the dance floor in the ShinAwil production.

The celebrities will pair up with their professional dancing partners to test their twinkle toes. Each pairing will have a different dance to master every week from the cha-cha to mambo to tango and will have just seven days to perfect their routine before performing live.

The line-up includes dietician Dr Eva Orsmond, sports commentator Des Cahill, Kerry footballer Aidan O'Mahony, reporter Teresa Mannion, Big Brother's Hughie Maughan, comedians Katherine Lynch and Des Bishop,  Fair City and The Fall actress Aoibhin Garrihy, and Red Rock - Love/Hate actress Denise McCormack. Amanda Byram and Nicky Byrne will present the first series.

Paddy Magee, Country Operations Manager, Renault Ireland said: "Renault Ireland is delighted to sponsor the very first Dancing with The Stars. We look forward to being entertained by the celebrity participants and wish the hosts well on the new show, which will no doubt be a big success."
