"He is desperate to show his personality and that he is strong in other ways, he'd love to throw himself into Bushtucker Trials.

"Bosses think he would be a great addition to the cast and it always helps to secure a heartthrob as it draws in much-needed younger viewers."

"It took up six months of my life, some days I would work 18-hour days because I was dancing and choreographing.

No life

"I didn't have a life and I wanted to be able to do more.

"And to show people what I'm about - not just, 'Here's my celebrity partner this year that I'm going to showcase'.

"I did have to turn down things in the past, which I was upset about sometimes, but I understood I was part of Strictly Come Dancing.

"Now I am going to pursue things I didn't have the time for. It's the right move.
