BOO! Strictly Come Dancing's Louis Smith won't be flashing his abs!

Louis Smith (Strictly Come Dancing)

Olympic star Louis Smith has said he won't be whipping his shirt off on Strictly Come Dancing this year.

Topless dances from the male celebrities aren't unheard of, with Gavin Henson previously taking every opportunity to remove his top on the dancefloor!

But despite being possibly one of the fittest people in the country, Louis ruled out ever getting his abs out this week, claiming he was intimidated by the other male dancers.

Speaking to Digital Spy, Louis said: "I don't think I'll go topless.

"Some of the pro girl dancers have got better abs than me! So I'll keep that under wraps."

Chatting to the website from training, Louis revealed he was already feeling the strain of constant dance rehearsals with professional dancer partner Flavia Cacace.

"My bum cheeks are aching from training," he said. "I can't combine this with gym, my body couldn't handle it."

The Strictly Come Dancing live shows start on October 5 on BBC One.
