What did Tamzin Outhwaite say about Strictly?

Speaking exclusively to ED!, Tamzin revealed: “It’s one of those things I always think… There are boxes you want to tick as a human being and there’s something about Strictly that keeps coming back into my head.”

With the contestants already announced for this year’s show, Tamzin admitted she’s certainly keen to join the show at some point in the future.

“I’m just not sure when,” she said, adding: “Or if I’m too old now, if my body can take it any more.”

Tamzin added: “It’s a lot of work on your muscles, but I think I’d be fine.

“One day maybe, who knows!”

I’m just not sure when or if I’m too old now, if my body can take it any more.

Tamzin revealed she is currently trying to “fall back in love” with the gym post-lockdown, so it could be that she’s limbering up those Strictly muscles.

Tamzin’s new diet

She’s currently following a no alcohol, no dairy and no meat diet and she said it makes her feel less “sluggish”.

She told us: “I do it for a bit and then I have a break from it. It makes it so much easier for me to work out as I don’t feel sluggish.

“I’m trying to move towards being plant-based and drink much less,” she added.

“At the beginning of lockdown I was quite unhealthy then I turned it round. I went to the Body Camp in Majorca and it made everything easier.
