Erin McGregor hopes to stay in Dancing with the Stars until the very end as she is enjoying a break from household duties.

Erin, who is UFC champion Conor McGregor's eldest sister, admits she is enjoying a well-earned break from normality on the dancing competition.

Speaking to RTÉ Entertainment, the 36-year-old said, "I have a baby at home. I've stayed at home for the last 16 months. I've had zero sleep. I've stayed in a housecoat for way too long. The house is a mess".

Erin, a body builder and fitness model, said she wouldn't mind her partner doing the laundry for the next few months.

"The partner is looking after the baby because I'm practicing all of the time. This has given me a break from the norm.

"The longer I can stay in the competition that means the longer I don't have to clean the kitchen. So I'm happy with that.

"If I can stay in for longer my partner is going to have to clean the kitchen and do the laundry because I can say 'I'm working'."

Can’t Stop Dancing airs this Thursday at 9.30pm on RTÉ2, with Dancing with the Stars continuing on Sunday at 6.30pm on RTÉ One.
