Dancing with the Stars: Kevin McGahern eliminated from semi-final

Kevin McGahern has become the seventh celebrity to be eliminated from tonight's semi-final of Dancing with the Stars.

The enchanting episode had a fairy tale theme as each of the five couples performed a routine inspired by a classic story. Comedian and actor Kevin McGahern and Laura Nolan were the first couple to bring a magical twist to the evening.

Their cute and contemporary Charleston to the classic Cotton Eye Joe by Rednex had a Three Little Pigs theme as John Nolan also featured in their dance. The duo scored 27 from the judges which was Kevin's highest score of the series.

Kevin and Laura found themselves with the lowest combined scores alongside Suzanne Jackson and Michael Danilczuk so each couple got a second chance to fight for their place in next week’s Grand Final. Sadly, Kevin and Laura were voted out.

Kevin said: “I’m delighted to go out on a dance that I feel we danced well, out on a high note.”

Singer and Glee star Damian McGinty and Kylee Vincent performed Rumba that made references to Sleeping Beauty as they danced to Stay by Shakespears Sister. They scored 29 points from the judges.

Following their record-breaking Rumba which earned them a perfect score of 30 on last Sunday’s show, TV presenter and businesswoman, Suzanne Jackson and her professional partner Michael Danilczuk danced Tango to Hungry like the Wolf by Duran Duran, inspired by the fairy tale Little Red Riding Hood. Suzanne and Michael scored 29 from the judges.

Following her shock dance-off last week, Eurovision singer, Brooke Scullion and her professional partner Robert Rowiński were back to fight for their place in the grand final. They performed a Cinderella-themed Cha-cha-cha to Years & Years and Kylie Minogue’s hit A Second to Midnight. Brooke was thrilled earlier this week when Olly Alexander from Years and Years wished her luck in response to her social media post.

Brooke and Robert scored 30 from the judges.

Part three of tonight’s show closed with a lively Quickstep by 2FM presenter Carl Mullan and Emily Barker. Carl earned his first ten of the series last week. Jack and the Beanstalk was the inspiration for their dance and the danced to Hit the Road Jack by Throttle.

Carl and Emily scored 26 from the judges.
