Ruby Swapping The Saddle For Dancing?

Retired jockey Ruby Walsh is 5/1 to ditch the saddle next January and put on some dancing shoes for Dancing with the Stars Ireland.

The cast is set to be revealed in November but should the multiple Grade 1 winning champion jockey feel like a change, then the dance floor might be the place.

Dancing with the Stars judges Lorraine Barry and Brian Redmond have one star in mind to dance in the upcoming series of Dancing with the Stars and that is former rugby player Donncha O’Callaghan. BoyleSports make the retired Munster rugby star 6/4 to take part in the hit dancing show. Judge Lorraine even stated a ‘big lump of a man’ like Donncha who is into his tan and always has his legs out, would be prefect for the show.

Maura Higgins is being backed to take part in the next series of Dancing with the Stars Ireland after her departure from the Love Island villa.

The Longford model is 6/4 to join the cast, cut from 9/2.

Other rumoured contestants are radio star Ray D’Arcy (5/4) and Late Late Show host Ryan Tubridy (3/1).
