Derry Girls star Leah O'Rourke is the tenth celebrity announced for series six of Dancing with the Stars, which returns to RTÉ One in January.

Speaking about taking to the dancefloor in the New Year, O'Rourke, who plays Jenny Joyce in the hit comedy series, said: "I am absolutely thrilled to be joining the show. This is the opportunity of a lifetime. If I'm brave enough to showcase terrible singing on Derry Girls, I'm hoping I'll be brave enough to showcase my attempts at dancing.

"I'm looking forward to taking on a new challenge, shaking off the school plait and showing a more glam side to me."

The budding dancer has also appeared in several short films including Wasted, Anna and Normality, and played Siobhán in the award-winning film Half Brothers.
