The second episode of Daniel sa Bhaile is due to air this weekend but TG4 have shared a clip of Daniel and Majella trying Zumba ahead of time.

Daniel O'Donnell has a new show on TG4 at the moment. Called Daniel sa Bhaile the programme gives viewers a look into Daniel's Donegal home as he chats to a host of different people about their experiences of life under lockdown - getting the scoop on everything from newfound quarantine hobbies they've picked up to their favourite biccies... you know, all the important information.

Widely considered to be a national treasure, Daniel and his wife Majella have long been keeping people entertained while at home - last week doing so thanks to a video of the two trying to start a live stream (which looked like it was going to come to blows at one point), this week by signing up for a virtual Zumba class.

Proving that they're more than good sports, the twosome tuned into a virtual Zumba class where they followed the instructor's directions to try and put together a high-paced dance routine. Due to air on tomorrow's episode of the new show, TG4 has kindly shared a preview clip and it's convinced us that Daniel sa Bhaile is absolutely necessary viewing.

Slightly different to what they're used to but they're sure to have a few new moves to add to the repertoire after that. Daniel 'snake hips' O'Donnell kind of seems to be freestyling and doing his own thing but that's neither here nor there... it's the effort that counts.
