Barrowman Flattered by Strictly Rumours

John Horatio Barrowman is flattered to be linked  to the hosting gig on Strictly Come Dancing; the nation’s sequinned favourite.

The Torchwood star, speaking on hard hitting investigative programme This Morning, responded to rumours that he had been chosen to replace the soft shooed Bruce Forsyth – who despite increased audience figures, is winding down his workload.

Barrowman commented;

“It is all a rumour and I don’t have any information more… but I’m flattered. I think that Brucie is a TV icon, we all know him and I grew up with him before I went to the States… and if they were to ask me, and if Bruce were to offer those dancing shoes to me, I would gladly take them. It’s an incredible thing.

“I’m telling you the truth, I know nothing about it. But it would be an incredible gig and it’s an amazing show.”

In the meantime Strictly fan Barrowman will be appearing on the Christmas Special although he’s yet to find out who he’ll be cha, cha, cha-ing with:

And I don’t know who I’m partnered with yet… I’m quite nervous. And I don’t know what dance I’m doing yet.

People say to me, ‘Well you sing, dance and you act, but I sing, I can act, but I can’t really dance’. I’m a mover! This kind of dancing is different from any kind of dancing that I have done. You have to really focus on the steps and the footwork, everything.

Everyone has a favourite Doctor and mine - just for his honesty, his fairness and his ability to not notice the Master's awful, awful disguises/anagrams (Sir Gilles Estram!?!) - has to be the Fifth Doctor, Peter Davison. The stories didn’t serve him as well as his acting served those stories.
