Strictly Come Dancing is making Louis Smith fat! (Apparently)

Louis Smith (Strictly Come Dancing)

Strictly Come Dancing 2012 is making Louis Smith fat, or so he reckons!

The gymnast looks pretty fit to us, and we can't say that weight gain is a complaint usually had by stars who appear in the show.

However the London 2012 silver medalist insisted that his hectic training schedules have forced him to miss work outs, and it's seeing him go out of shape!

We'd have though that all the rehearsals would more than make up for the lack of visits to the gym, but Louis said: "I'm not as chiseled as I was.

"I know I'm not overweight but I do feel a bit fat. I've put on a few pounds. I have less definition in my arms and my abs and less muscle mass."

Speaking about his body, the fit sportsman continued: "it allowed me to do what I had to do for my sport. I've got to get back to the gm, but the training with strictly takes all my time."

And he joked: "I wouldn't say that I've had a bum lift like Kimberley Walsh my bum is definitely very, very sore."


This week Strictly Come Dancing is on Saturday 10th November at 6.30pm with the results show on Sunday 11th November at 7.25pm on BBC One and BBC One HD.
