Last year, Lottie was announced as a new presenter on the Dancing With The Stars spin-off show Can’t Stop Dancing.

The 2fm regular joined host Blathnaid Treacy for live interviews with special guests following the Sunday night elimination.

However, when the show returned for a third season this year, viewers were left guessing why Lottie’s slot was cut.

Explaining the radio host’s absence, Blathnaid explained that Lottie’s departure came as a result of a shake-up of the format for Season Three.

Dancing With The Stars pirouettes towards ratings gloom

Dancing With The Stars pirouettes towards ratings gloom The latest season of Ten's Dancing With The Stars has failed to wow viewers.

She told RSVP Live: “Unfortunately, her segment left the show because of the change in format. We don’t have her this year, but we might get her back for Season Four.”

The production team dropped the live format in favour of more behind the scenes content. Something that seems to be working very well for the Friday night preview show.

“I am visiting the guys at rehearsals, which I am loving, and I am doing loads more backstage content. People at home want to see the girls with rollers in their hair and what goes on before they hit the dancefloor.

“The format is working really well and the ratings are higher than they were last year. I feel a lot more relaxed because it is my third year and I am more familiar with all of the crew and I am loving it,” she continued.

'It's not fair!' Dancing With the Stars fans are left outraged after discovering some of blogger Constance Hall's followers have been using VPNs to vote from overseas

'It's not fair!' Dancing With the Stars fans are left outraged after discovering some of blogger Constance Hall's followers have been using VPNs to vote from overseas It seems not all is fair on Dancing With the Stars. Many fans of the dance show have been left incensed after discovering some of Constance Hall's overseas fans have been using a VPN to vote.

Lottie , the eldest daughter of the late Gerry Ryan, had previously said it was a dream to have landed the gig back in January 2018.

Speaking at the time, she said: “I’m a huge fan of the show, it’s a mammoth production.

“It’s very exciting for me as a fan of the show to be there working on it.”

Now, Lottie is working as a showbiz correspondent on 2fm, as well as appearing regularly on the broadcaster’s breakfast show, ‘Breakfast Republic’ alongside Jennifer Zamparelli, Keith Walsh and Bernard O’Shea.

And after it was announced that Jennifer would be leaving the show for a mid-morning slot replacing Nicky Byrne and Jenny Greene instead, Lottie is thought to be a front runner to take her place.

Dancing With The Stars' Olympia Valance on elimination.
She was sitting pretty on the top of the leader board last week, with an impressive score of 26 out of 30 from the judges, but last night Olympia Valance was sent home in a shock elimination on Dancing With The Stars. The 26-year-old actress and her partner Jarryd Byrne took on a Pulp Fiction-inspired routine for Movie Night, later wowing in the group dance tribute to Bohemian Rhapsody and Queen. But her incredible performances weren't enough to keep her in the competition, with the star being eliminated in a moment that shocked viewers AND the judges. "I was surprised," Olympia tells TV WEEK exclusively.
