It's Ladies Night on Dancing With The Stars this week, with contestants: Yewande Biala, Grainne Gallanagh, Glenda Gilson, Mary Kennedy, Sinéad O'Carroll and Lottie Ryan lined up to strut their stuff on the dance floor.

Last week, the men showed their moves and will perform a group dance tonight.

RTÉ caught up with the dancers to find out how they were feeling about taking part in the contest.

Yewande Biala 

Love Islander, Yewande Biala said "I'm super excited, just excited to learn new moves and meet new people.It’ll be interesting to get to know everyone.I just want to enjoy the experience overall really."

Mary Kennedy

Former Nationwide presenter Mary Kennedy said: "I'm really looking forward to it, I’m quite petrified but I’m looking forward to learning new dances and doing something different. I’ve always been a fan and I’ve come out to watch the live show every year it’s been on so now it’s time to pony up and put my money where my mouth is…"

Grainne Gallanagh

Former Miss Universe Ireland Grainne Gallanagh said: "I am delighted to be a part of the show, I'm so, so happy to be here. I’m really excited for when the show actually starts, you know, we’ve had a taste of the glitz and glamour already with the photo shoots etc but I actually cannot wait to get stuck into rehearsals and then for the live shows to begin. I am nervous though about picking up the dances quick enough but I'm going to try my absolute best and bring in my competitive spirit while enjoying the experience overall."

Glenda Gilson

Television presenter Glenda Gilson said; "I'm absolutely delighted to be part of Dancing with the Stars. I've always been a big fan of the show but now that I’m here and I’m in costume, I’m ready to rock. I’m kind of a little bit scared to be honest with you; I’m not a dancer, so this is totally out of my comfort zone, I’ve never danced before. But I’ve loved watching the show on TV so I’m really thrilled to be part of it. I can’t wait to learn how to dance, so hopefully I do that during the Christmas period and I won’t make a show of myself when I get on the live shows."

Sinéad O'Carroll

B*Witched star Sinéad O'Carroll said; "I’m just super excited. I’ve wanted to do this for the last few years so the fact that I’m doing it now, is so surreal. My kids are so excited; they just told me I have to be good…so the pressure is on from them.I suppose…I’m a little bit nervous too about stepping out and doing something by myself as I always had the girls around me. But I think once I get the first dance done, I’ll hopefully be fine."

Lottie Ryan

2FM entertainment presenter Lottie Ryan said; "I could not be more excited to be joining Dancing with the Stars. I think it's going to be a once in a lifetime incredible adventure and I cannot wait to get stuck in."

Dancing With The Stars in on RTÉ One at 6.30pm.
