A Irishman and a Venezuelan woman walked onto the dancefloor… oh, you’ve heard that one already.

Westlife’s Nicky Byrne and Karen Hauer make up ‘Team Kanicky’! The couple’s first outing on Strictly started with a little controversy – Craig criticised Karen for using an “illegal lift”, although Karen and Nicky didn’t seem to mind. Karen certainly seems to be a fiery personality, and we can see more run-ins with Strictly’s resident jobswoth judge!

Like all teams, ‘Team Kanicky’ needs your support. Please leave all your messages of encouragement below. They’ll appreciate it!

    Hey Karen, I saw you used candles in your 'cribs' video, bad news if you knocked them whilst practising all kinds of safety risks, haven't you heard of going wickless? I have a fragrance of wax called Red Candy Apple that lasts much longer than a normal candle and no fire risk!

    Louis got rotten comments like Nicky and he too took it like a gentleman. Craig will make it hard for him to get through to the final and would prefer Lisa...how could he have preferred Lisa to Nicky???????? Lets hear it for the boys!!!!!!

    I hope you will keep reading the blog! You were always a star dancer with unique choreography and lots of style. I never agreed with the judges yet you always listened to the constructive bits of what they said and improved .. hats off to you. Please read the news blog. Noone there thought you should have left before Lisa but we all thought you left with grace and style and should be really proud. There are some great comments there from people who are objective, not just your fans. You will be remembered not just by your fans but by all Strictly viewers in a very positive way.

    A massive congratulations to Nicky and Karen for getting as far as the quarter-finals!
    You had 10 great weeks and I hope you're both proud of yourselves, because we all are!
    Nicky, your determination and dedication throughout the competition is truly admirable! You worked so hard, gave it your all every week and put 110% into every performance... Well done!
    It has been a pleasure to support you and watch you progress and improve every week!
    I'm so gutted that you're out of the competition but keep your head held high, you did yourself and us all so proud!

    Nicky you have shown great strength of character and amazing resolve to come back and fight your way up the leader board. You can dance and have been delightful to watch. Your journey to the quarter finals has been the hardest of any contestent. With Karen's inexperience and Craig many would have crumbled but you have fought on with dignity and grace. I didn't know who you were before Strictly but i now know you are gentleman.

    You and Denise should never have been in the dance off. The marking from the judges beggars belief. Enjoyed all your dances and you should be proud of yourself and Karen for all you achieved.

    Hi Nicky
    I don't usually post on your site because I'm supporting Louis and Flavia to win!
    But I just wanted to apologize to you and disassociate myself from the appalling treatment you got from the judges and especially from Craig this week. He was offensively rude and his mark of 5 was shocking. I didn't know anything about you before the show but I think you're great fun and I've enjoyed your work a lot. You seem to have contributed importantly to the group ambiance and I'm sure you've made a lot of friends there. Enjoy your children and your life! All the best.

    And well done Karen too on your first appearance.
