RTÉ has announced that Dancing with the Stars will not go ahead in 2021 due to ongoing restrictions related to Covid-19.

The Public Service Broadcast has stated that it hopes to bring back the series in 2022.

Commenting on the decision, John McHugh, RTÉ's Head of Entertainment said: 

"We are extremely disappointed not to be in a position to produce series five of Dancing with the Stars in 2021. After much discussion, we feel the risks are too high with a production of this scale to proceed with the series in 2021 and we hope to revisit the show in 2022"

"We understand that the many fans of the series will be disappointed with this decision,” McHugh continued.  “However, given the unprecedented challenges posed by Covid-19 and our duty of care, we believe this decision is the right one. We will continue to work with Larry Bass and ShinAwiL on other projects and will be conducting ongoing discussions with them and the BBC to try and bring back Dancing with the Stars in 2022."

RTÉ will announce a full autumn schedule of programming and content across our television, radio and online services in the coming weeks.
