CATHY Kelly has become the first celebrity booted off Dancing With The Stars.

The RTE One show saw the author lose her chance at lifting the Glitterball trophy after she received the fewest votes.

Speaking afterwards, Cathy said she felt like she “let down” her dance partner Maurizio Benenato.

She added: “It has been an amazing experience, it has been so much fun, I have had so much fun.

Cathy's tango failed to impress judges Loraine Barry, Brian Redmond and Arthur Gourounlian as they scored her just 15 points.

The show also saw Lottie Ryan join host Nicky Byrne as she stepped in for Jennifer Zamparelli who was forced to miss the weekend show after she contracted Covid-19.

She said she was "honoured” to be hosting while also wishing Jennifer a speedy recovery.

First on the floor was Paralympian swimmer Ellen Keane and pro dancer Stephen Vincent, whose impressive cha-cha scored 21 points.

Former RTE news anchor Aengus MacGrianna waltzed his way on the dance floor with Emily Barker but failed to impress the show's judges, scoring a low ll points.

But during the show an unlikely online scrap emerged between RTE's weather presenter Nuala Carey and Brian Redmond after she lashed out at the judge's three points.

She said: “Judges were far too harsh. 3 points, really??!!!"

But Brian hit back last night and said Nuala often delivers bad news and should be used to it.
