Strictly Against Breast Cancer takes place at the Convention Centre in Dublin tonight and will be hosted by Westlife member Nicky Byrne.

Irish celebrities including Eoghan McDermott, Charlie Bird and Sinead Desmond have spent the last two months training with a team of professional choreographers.

Each of the stars have been matched with volunteer supporters of Breast Cancer Ireland - some of whom are survivors, in order to to raise much needed funds for Breast Cancer Ireland.

The judges of the event will include last year's runner up, author Emma Hannigan, FAI's John Delaney, Irish musician and The Blizzards frontman Niall 'Bressie' Breslin, and Irish ballerina Monica Loughman.

Solicitor Gerald Kean is taking part and explains why it is a sell-out.
