Mary Kennedy hasn't even taken to the dance floor with her partner yet but already she's proving a fan favourite. 'Dancing with the Stars' kicked off last night for its brand new season with another batch of celebs taking to the dance floor.

As well as Mary Kennedy, this year's lineup includes Aidan Fogarty, Brian Dowling, Michael Carruth, Yewande Biala, Fr. Ray Kelly, Grainne Gallanagh, Sinead O'Carroll, Lottie Ryan, Ryan Andrews and Glenda Gilson.

Last night it was the five male celebrities who took to the dance floor with their partners but the ladies also showed off some of their moves in a group dance.

Mary Kennedy, who is 65 going on 35, shone throughout and viewers were more than impressed with this former 'Nationwide' host.

You can catch Mary Kennedy and the rest of the female dancers hit the dancefloor with their partners on next Sunday's 'Dancing with the Stars' on RTÉ One.
