Strictly's Daniel O'Donnell defies the doubters

Editor's Viewpoint

Published 05/10/2015

Some might have regarded Daniel O'Donnell as one of the joke entries in this year's Strictly Come Dancing TV show, but so far he is dancing rings around those doubters of his ability beneath the glitterball.

Indeed, this past weekend he appeared to be getting more in tune with the demands being made of him and learning to relax even if every step is being scrutinised closely by the judges and the viewing public.

He has performed very credibly in his first two performances and his skill and winning personality, allied to his legion of fans who can be relied on to vote in their thousands, could see him on our screens for many weeks yet, brightening up those dark winter nights. Daniel may be from Donegal, but we still regard him as our local hero, so keep voting.
