“I’ve been hitting the gym to get fitter because there’s a lot of stamina required, and to get stronger.”

The TV star said he had no problem donning Strictly’s lycra and sequinned outfits, adding that he had even asked for his launch evening outfit to be more “bejazzled”.

He said: “This (outfit) is understated. I’ve already had a word with the wardrobe department. 

“I’m like, I had to get these (wardrobe gems) put on as extra. It needs a bit more bejazzling. I am not averse to any glitter or sparkle, anyone that knows me knows that I love dressing up, so bring it on.”.
