O'Donnell impressed by Majella's LLS jive routine
30 May 2015 09:09
Majella O'Donnell has said her hubby Daniel didn't give her any tips ahead of her performance on tonight's Late Late Show celebrity dance-off and admitted she is worried about messing-up a very important move during her routine.
-
Speaking to TEN Majella, who will be doing the jive for Arc Cancer Support Centres, said she didn't ask the Danny Boy hitmaker for any advice.
-
She said: "No, I didn't ask him for any advice. When I was showing him all of the steps I had to do, he went 'Wow, okay...God love you'. He is a fantastic dancer, but he does normal jiving. This routine is more exhibition stuff."
-
When asked what the most difficult part of her routine is, she added: "It's funny because you learn the steps in sections and each section is fine on its own. It's when you go to put all of the sections together that it gets tricky. It's so fast that when you're watching it there's nothing in it. But when you break it down there are a lot of steps."
-
"There is one particular one where I come out of a turn and then I go into a kick and I always seem to miss the kick. Please God no one notices tomorrow," she laughed.
-
Other celebrities dancing their way across The Late Late show studio include Dermot Bannon, who will be dancing Bollywood style for Barnardos.
-
George Hook will be dancing the Charleston for the IRFU Charitable Trust and Rose of Tralee Maria Walsh will be doing the salsa for Bumbleance.
-
Each will dance with a professional dancer, then a panel of judges - Rory Cowan, Monica Loughman and Louis Walsh - will assess their efforts and the public are invited to vote on their favourites. The winner will be announced at the end of the show.
-
You can catch Majella and the rest of the celebrity dancers on The Late Late Show tonight on RTÉ One from 9.35pm.
-
Also: there's a season-ending competition open to every viewer - with €50,000 up for grabs!
