Alan Carr fears he is “The Ann Widdecombe” dancing
Alain carr admitted that he feared to be “the Ann widdecombe»Should it appear on Come dance strictly.
The comedian has been linked to the BBC’s prom show on numerous occasions in the past, and latest reports suggest he was approached to be part of the show’s first all-male couple.
The subject of the BBC prom show came up when David Walliams appeared on her Life’s A Beach podcast this week.
After Alan said he needed to lose weight, David suggested that they both do it Strictly, to which Alan replied, “What, same sex? One of us must be a dancer.
“They look amazing over there after.
“I wanted to be sexy, but I know I’ll be the Ann Widdecombe. I’ll be the one dragged on the floor dressed as a matador. I want to be sexy!
“I went to Buenos Aires, and you know, when they dance in the street, they really dance the street tango, and you say to yourself, ‘when I get home I’m going to learn to tango, because that’s so sexy.’ But then you get to Hounslow at Heathrow and you’re like ‘maybe I won’t care’.
England has an incredible talent Judge David also said that last year’s winner Bill Bailey, who
won the sparkling ball trophy with Oti Mabuse, had raised the level of actors on Strictly.
He added, “Bill set the bar high. Every time I dance people laugh – even when I’m not trying to make people laugh.
“I have to act like it’s a joke.”
Over the weekend, The Sun reported that BBC bosses approached both Alan and Olympian Tom daley on the formation of the first all-male couple in the series with a professional dancer Graziano Di Prima.
Alan has spoken of turning down offers from Strictly in the past, using excuses of being intimidated by hard work and the fear of being turned into a joke for saying no.
However, he recently said he has a major (and extremely NSFW!) Reason to turn down the BBC’s offer.
“People ask me what I think about gay dancing and I say no,” he explained in a previous episode of his Life’s A Beach podcast. “Their eyes light up and go ‘oh my god’, and I say no because I would get a lob if I danced with Aljaž [Škorjanec] or Gorka [Marquez]. “
Alan added, “If I get on a bus, the vibrations make me hard. So doing Argentine tango, forget it, it’s a sexy dance.
Other stars who have been linked to this year’s Strictly include former rugby player and commentator Ugo Monye, presenters Maya Jama and Emma Willis, Louise Minchin of BBC Breakfast and former footballer Peter Crouch.
Strictly Come Dancing returns to BBC One this fall. Alan Carr’s Life’s A Beach podcast is available to stream now.
