The news was announced yesterday.

Amanda Byram has been a fan favourite host on Dancing With The Stars Ireland when it first aired two years ago.

Working alongside Nicky Byrne, the pair got on like a house on fire and it was a good match for the dancing competition.

However, yesterday Amanda announced that she will no longer be hosting the show, with Nicky saying he was “going to miss the fun we enjoyed every Sunday.”

He said: “We’ve had a right laugh co-hosting such an exciting show together and I’m going to miss the fun we enjoyed every Sunday. I wish her all the very best with her future projects.”

Now it has been claimed that Amanda left the show for a big opportunity in LA.

A source told the Irish Mirror that the TV presenter has something else lined up in the near future: “It’s all about the scheduling. Amanda has got a big new job that she just couldn’t refuse.”

Amanda’s full statement, which was posted to her Instagram said:

“It’s with a heavy heart I share the news that due to personal and professional commitments both in London and LA, I won’t be joining the team for season three of DWTS Ireland.

“Walking away from such a successful and enjoyable show has been a difficult decision and I wish everyone the same success and enjoyment this year… keep dancing!”

The third season of Dancing With the Stars Ireland is set to kick off in January 2019. Nicky Byrne will be presenting the series with a new co-host.
