Dancing With The Stars is back on-air tonight, with the fourth series of the popular show kicking off with boys night, giving viewers the chance to see the five men who have committed to dance their socks off over the coming weeks and months.

The five chaps are sure to be feeling a mixture of nerves and excitement as they gear up to make their dancefloor debut in the show, which is again being presented by 2FM radio host Jennifer Zamparelli and Westlife's Nicky Byrne. 

This year's five male contestants are Aidan Fogarty, Brian Dowling, Michael Carruth, Fr Ray Kelly and Ryan Andrews who do not need to worry about being sent home this week as the first elimination it is not until week three.
