FORMER Westlife star Nicky Byrne has told of how ending up in the bottom two on ‘Strictly Come Dancing’ has given him more focus and made him work harder to compete.
Speaking to the Irish Independent during a closed dance rehearsal in Dublin ahead of tomorrow’s live round of the BBC show, the 33-year-old admitted he was disappointed with his performance.
He and his partner Karen Hauer (30) performed a waltz but did not impress the judges.
“It was a bit savaging last week,” he said.
“We had the waltz down to a tee last week in Dublin and then I went to England, walked in for a run-through and I forgot it all as soon as I got on the floor. It’s very intimidating being on the ‘Strictly’ set.
“That’s why I’m working extra hard this week, to make sure I’m not in that position again.”
The father-of-two will perform a version of the Cha Cha on tomorrow’s live show.
