Rory said: “Last year I couldn't do it [Dancing with the Stars] because I had back surgery. But this year it's going to be fantastic because I'm 64, I’m turning 65 in July and I just want to go out with a bang.

"I'm not going to be doing anything else after this."

Rory will still appear on Fair City in the city, but he admitted that he is "decrepit" for his age due to his plantar fasciitis diagnosis and recent back surgery.

He added: "I'll continue with Fair City for as long as they like, that's wonderful show to have. But when I'm 65 I want to do as little as possible!

"I just think that dancing lifts your heart. I don't have any expectations of winning this.

"I've plantar fasciitis. I've had back surgery. I'm a bit decrepit for my age!

"I'm in good form but I just know if I don't do it this year, I'll never do it.”

Rory also opened up about his previous dancing experience ahead of taking to the dancefloor for Dancing with the Stars in the New Year.

He said: “When I was three or four years of age my mother took me to Irish dancing. At the time there was a champion Irish dancer called Rory O’Connor and he had a dance school out in Rathfarnham. I was a really lanky kid."
The former Mrs. Brown's Boys star added: "All the other kids were half my size in height and I was (accidentally) kicking the girls on either side of me.

"Rory O'Connor said to my mother, 'Missus, you may take that child out of here, he’s more suited to demolishing houses', so that's what I'm going to be doing on Dancing with the Stars!”
