However, he explained that, when he was first asked to be on the show by Dancing With The Stars, he thought his friends were playing a prank on him.

Billy explains: “I loved it. When the call came in and I was asked to do it, I initially replied, ‘These are the people who are rolling me, they are rolling me’.

“‘I’m on Dancing With The Stars? The band was out to get me.”

“So I went, ‘Yes, send me the details. This is my email address”.

“Next of all the emails came in and I was like, ‘Oh my god, this is real’.

“And it would be easy to say no but I said, ‘Why not? Why not take a new challenge?’

“I’ve been in music for forty years and why not take my mind off the music and start practicing dancing and I love it.”

Billy then went on to explain that the first person he talked to about the offer was the band’s lead singer Christy Dignam, who immediately told him to do it.

The Dublin native continued: “Christy is very supportive.

“Christy was the first person I called. I said, ‘Christy, I’ve been asked to do Dancing With The Stars,’ and he said, ‘Billy do it,'” he said, “You’ll do it.” like it. You were made to do it. If anyone in Aslan would do it [it would be you]’.

‘HOW WONDERFUL’

“Everybody – my family, both so much. My mom and sister came on Sunday, they loved the show. It’s been amazing for all the support.”

Billy admitted that he expected some negative comments online about his participation on the show but the opposite happened.

He went on to say: “I was expecting some backlash on social media but the opposite happened.

“When it was posted on Aslan’s social media, people were saying, ‘Come on Billy’, do your best,’, ‘It’s great to see you do something different’.

“I was blown away by that.”
