Let's Dance 2013: Ricky Hatton reckons he'll surprise viewers!

Let's Dance For Comic Relief 2013

Let's Dance for Comic Relief 2013 kick off at the weekend and Ricky Hatton reckons his boxing history will help him with the dancing.

The sportsman will be amongst the first celebs competing in the BBC One series this Saturday night.

He'll be joined by the likes of EastEnders actress Natalie Cassidy, joking one line king Tim Vine and presenter Olivia Lee.

Speaking about the show, Ricky said this week: "In the ring I think my footwork was very underrated. I used to feint then slip to the left, slip to the right in order to find my body shots.

"Let’s see if I can’t bring those moves from the ring to the dance floor!”

Now retired from the sport, Ricky hopes to settle down and focus on his family (and dance moves!)

He added to the Radio Times this week: “I want to be the best father I can be. When I was going through depression I nearly lost my family, my girlfriend, my life.

“So being grateful for family is paramount. Being healthy, keeping busy, doing shows like Let’s Dance – all of that will keep them happy.”
