Stephen Fry is unlikely to take part in Strictly Come Dancing because he finds shows like that “cringe”.
The 62-year-old media personality has compared the effect of watching the BBC One dance show to “nails on a blackboard”.
Appearing on tonight’s The Jonathan Ross Show, he admitted: “I loathe dancing. It embarrasses me.
“Not only to do it, but to watch other people do it.
“The Strictly-type thing I find absolutely nails on a blackboard. It’s an allergy. I can’t bear dancing. It makes me cringe.”
Stephen also admitted to being sensitive to criticism – and explained his use of social media worsened that condition.
Asked about his use of Twitter, Stephen said previously: “I am on it but the difference now is that I don’t engage with it very much because of the comments and the unkindness.
“I am very sensitive. It’s pathetic after all these years, but I am.”
Meanwhile, the QI star also reflected on shedding over five stone – and is feeling “very happy” about his weight loss.
He also revealed a spot of walking helps lift his mood when he needs it.
“It’s not a guaranteed help for mental stress and anxiety or anything else but it does help me,” the actor added.
– The Jonathan Ross Show airs tonight, Saturday 14 September, from 10.15pm on ITV
