Dancing With the Stars contestant Grainne Gallanagh has said that she has applied to return to nursing to assist frontline workers fighting the Corona virus.

The 25-year-old model and beauty queen from Buncrana in Donegal said: "So I think it may be time hang up the dancing shoes and dawn the scrubs and gloves again.

Having not worked as a nurse in Ireland for the last few years I am in the process of re registration to help do my bit in the current crisis." 

Gallanagh continued: "Sending so much love to all the healthcare staff that are already in the midst of all the chaos."
