Strictly Come Dancing target Alan Carr says he’s worried he will end up the next ‘Ann Widdecombe’


STRICTLY Come Dancing bosses had better get Alan Carr on the phone for a pep talk if he is their secret male signing for this year’s show.

Bosses have apparently signed up a bloke to put in the show’s first all-male partnership — with Olympic diver Tom Daley and Alan among those rumoured to have been asked.

Alan said: ‘I will be the Ann Widdecombe — the one dragged around the floor dressed as a matador’

But Alan fears that he would end up as the “joke act” like Ann Widdecombe.

He raised his concerns after pal David Walliams suggested they could be the same-sex pairing on the series, which starts next month.

Alan said: “I need to lose weight — one of us has to be a dancer. I went to Buenos Aires and said, ‘When I go home, I am going to learn how to tango’.

“I wanted to be sexy but know I will be the Ann Widdecombe — the one dragged around the floor dressed as a matador.”

David joked on Alan’s Life’s A Beach podcast: “I am a dancer.”

But Alan deadpanned: “Oh please, The Birdie Song doesn’t count.”

Last year comedian Bill Bailey became the oldest Strictly winner so far alongside pro dance partner Oti Mabuse.

David said: “Bill set the bar high. Whenever I dance, people laugh — even when I am not trying to make people laugh.


“I have to pretend it’s a joke.”

He added that he used his dad’s “jazz hands” technique, saying: “My dad used to dance by waving his hands around — he didn’t actually move.”

It sounds like even Oti would have have her work cut out getting these two ready for Blackpool.
