Clelia from day one of her career has always championed being a single mother and having a career – long before it was fashionable to do so! And fair play for that ! 👏🏼 #DWTSIrl

Unfortunately Clelia wasn’t feeling well this week but scored exceptionally well with 21 points.
Brian Redmond said: “It wasn’t your best”. While Loraine said: “You haven’t been well.. but you gave it your best.”
Julian added: “You attacked that with gusto.” He also described it as “romantic and nostalgic”.
This come after Clelia said she’d never normally wear the racy, flesh-flashing outfits she’s been zipped into on the flamboyant show.

The former Fair City star told the Irish Sun on Sunday: “There’s not a f*****g chance
But if you asked me if they were right for the show, I’d say 100 per cent.
“I come from an actor’s point of view that I do what I’m told. You’re only as strong as the team around you so the last thing they need me saying is ‘I’m not wearing that’.”
