He may be gone - but Father Ray Kelly won't forget his time on Dancing With the Stars in a hurry and looks back on the experience with a smile and many happy memories.

Speaking to RTÉ Entertainment along with his professional dance partner Kylee Vincent, the dancing cleric reflected on his run to week 10 and felt it was definitely as far as he could've gone in the competition.

"I feel tired and excited – and sort of glad that my journey on Dancing With the Stars is over," he admits. "The contestants that are left – the four celebs – are the right ones to be there."

Although he truly enjoyed the experience, Father Ray also talks about the negative side of being on Dancing With the Stars, as he received a lot of nasty, negative comments from people.
