Curtis Pritchard will not be dusting off his dancing shoes for Dancing With The Stars when the RTE show returns to our screens in January.

The Love Island star has announced that time constraints mean that he will not be able to commit to the upcoming season of the show.

Curtis, who finished in fourth place on the most recent season of Love Island along with Longford's Maura Higgins, has other commitments over the next few months which include a role in Christmas panto Dick Whittington.

"I was part of Dancing With The Stars for three years," Curtis told RSVP Live.

"The show was a massive part of my life and I loved every single minute of it.

"It was a massive journey for me but I am not a part of it anymore."

RTE are said to be in the process of finding a replacement for Curtis, whose brother AJ dances on Strictly Come Dancing.

Curtis and Maura remain in the minority in terms of Love Island couples who are still going strong. They coupled up late on in the series after Curtis decided not to recouple with Amy.
