Captain Bernard O'Shea Pirates of the Caribbean on Dancing with the Stars Ireland

Laois man Bernard O'Shea entertained the nation on Sunday evening's episode of Dancing with the Stars Ireland on RTE One.

Bernard and his dance partner Valeria Milova took on the Paso Doble to the music 'He's a Pirate' from Pirates of the Caribbean.

The Laois comedian and radio presenter really embraced the theme and embodied captain Jack Sparrow in a dramatic outfit sporting dreadlocks and plenty of eye makeup.

"I never thought I'd be on national television with my mascara running," the Laois man joked.

The dance was entertaining and grabbed the attention of many viewers and even tough judge Brian Redmond was impressed.

"It turned out to be pretty good, it was okay. I liked the fact that you committed to giving us plenty of Paso content, your bum is still sticking out a little bit, you committed to the energy of Paso and you committed to dancing so well done," Brain said.

Judge Loraine Barry said that Bernard is going from strength to strength.

"I think this is Bernard saying goodbye beginner, hello competitor," she said.

Judge Julian Benson was also pleased with the performance and said the Durrow man attacked the role.

"What I love about you is I didn't even recognise you when you came out, you took on the character, you took on the role of the Paso. 

"There is plenty of treasure in my heart for you," Julian said.

As always, Twitter came to life during the show on Sunday evening and there was some great responses from the public.

Tomas O'Leary was sent home on the night and Bernard has made it through to dance another week.
