It’s time to grab the tissue as this week on DWTS the celebs will be taking on the ‘Dedicated Dance,’ a fan favourite and one that is certain to bring tears to viewers’ eyes.

First up to get us all in our feelings is makeup mogul Suzanne Jackson who will be dedicating her Cha cha cha to her parents who celebrate their fortieth wedding anniversary this year.

But for you get all emotional and start sobbing because ‘Oh my God isn’t it so beautiful they’ve been together for so long’ the song they’ve chosen will have you giggling.

Suzanne and her partner Michael Danilczuk will be showing off their skills to Irene Cara’s Flashdance… What a Feeling, a song from 1983, the year her parents said I do.

Panti Bliss has an even more emotional reason to get her groove on Sunday as she will be dancing for Professor Fiona Mulcahy, one of the first doctors who treated him when he was diagnosed with HIV in the 90s.

Panti a.k.a Rory O’Neill has been very open about her diagnosis saying to the Independent that when he first received the news in 1995 the disease was a ‘death sentence’ but as modern medical advances, she now expects to live as long as anyone else.

Denys Samson and herself will be dancing the Paso Doble to the Pet Shop Boys song It’s a Sin, a very poignant choice when you consider being age was banned in Ireland up until 1993 when it was decriminalised.

Though former rugby player Shane Bryne has made a name for himself as the joker (and the hair) of the competition, this week he wants to get into touch with his more serious side.

He and his partner Karen Byrne will be taking to the dance floor in honour of his friend and former teammate Anthony ‘Axel’ Foley who suddenly died in his sleep in a Paris hotel.

The duo will be tacking the Viennese Waltz as the dance to the very fitting Queen song We Are The Champions in his honour.

Brooke Scullion and her second partner of the series will be trying a Viennese Waltz as well to Kelly Clarkson’s Breakaway, dedicated to her mother.

Proud dads Carl Mullan and Kevin McGahern will be dedicating their moves to their kids with them dancing Jive and Paso Doble respectively.

Both Stephanie Roche and Damian McGinty have teammates and friendship at the forefront of their minds as Stephanie will dance in honour of the moment when she and the rest of the Republic of Ireland Women’s team threatened to strike back in 2017 and Damian for the friends in made on the show Glee.
