Update: 8.30pm: Dr Eva Orsmond has been sent home from this week’s Dancing With The Stars.

Des Cahill cut out the gimmicks and concentrated on the dancing on tonight’s Dancing With The Stars - and it paid off with the judges.
Dancing a tango with partner Karen, this was a dressed-down Des who had clearly been paying attention in dance class this week.

The judges liked that he cut out the gimmicks in favour of more proper dancing this week and gave Des and Karen a respectable 18 points...

How could Loraine score Des a 7? He was walking more than dancing. #DWTSIrl— Daniel 🇮🇪🇮🇪 (@Daniel_Reilly1) February 5, 2017
I am sorry but that's the most unpassionate tango I have ever seen #DWTSIrl— european liberal (@europlias) February 5, 2017
