Katja Mia Dancing with the Stars Ireland

Katja Mia is a contestant on the seventh series of Dancing with the Stars on RTÉ One and RTÉ Player. Speaking about joining the show, the Six O’Clock Show host said she was feeling giddy about the challenge.

She told RTÉ: “I’m feeling extremely excited. I feel a bit giddy as well, and I’ve met everyone and everyone’s kind of feeling the same. We’re nervous. We’re like, why did we agree to this? But we’re also ready to just have fun.”

“I was a stage school kid growing up but I haven’t done anything like Latin dancing, ballroom dancing, anything that’s quite technical like that. So that’s the daunting part but between that and just going out with friends and dancing in clubs – I think I’ve got a bit of rhythm, so I should be OK!”

Katja has been seeking advice from her famous friends, including Brian Dowling. She said her Six O’Clock Show co-host has been helping to calm her nerves.

“Brian is basically family with Dancing with the Stars at this point, isn’t he? He’s been great for calming the nerves,” Katja said.

The presenter has also been reaching out to former Dancing with the Stars contestants for advice. She said both Erica Cody and Suzanne Jackson have been hugely supportive.

“I’m also good friends with Erica Cody and she was there to give me advice. Suzanne Jackson gave me her number and said to call her anytime. They’ve been so supportive. So you can really see there’s like a Dancing with the Stars family – a sort of sense of community here with every class.”
