Strictly Come Dancing 2012: Richard Arnold refuses to get his 'moobs' out

Richard Arnold (Strictly Come Dancing 2012)

Strictly Come Dancing 2012 celebrity Richard Arnold has revealed he's refused to dance topless, despite requests!

The Daybreak showbiz presenter revealed today that he'd been asked to reveal some flash by the show's wardrobe department, but politely declined.

He said: “I’ve the most pendulous moobs on the dance floor. There’s no way anyone is going to see them.”

Richard joked: “It’s the men who become vainer. There’s been some chest shaving going on.”

Despite working for ITV1, Richard admitted that Strictly had been by far a better show than The X Factor this year.

"Darcey has been fantastic. You can’t over-estimate how important the dance content is to the audience. Though that’s not to take anything away from the other judges," he told the Daily Mirror. “Craig is very constructive. Sometimes I listen to Bruno and think, ‘Can I snatch a compliment from anything he says?’ Never! But Craig is pretty good. He sounds harsh but he is right. He and Len tend to be in agreement.”

Richard added: “Strictly is doing well because it is in keeping with the national spirit.

"It’s edifying there’s a show like this that gets families’ bums on seats on Saturday and Sunday night.”
