23-year-old Louis revealed recently he was planning to retire from gymnastics and is hoping of a career on TV.

Speaking to OK! magazine this week, Louis said he would love his own fly on the wall series.

He said: “I would like to have a crew following me around, when I’m not in an environment where I have to be responsible, when I’m just me. I think the public would enjoy seeing what I get up to.

“I love Strictly, its right up my street, the combination of doing something different and entertaining people, it keeps me occupied.

“I really like Nicky Byrne and Michael Vaughan, Denise Van Outen is hilarious, Kimberley Walsh is so lovely and caring.”

The super fit athlete has released a calender this year with plenty of topless pictures, bit insisted that he honestly doesn't feel like a sex symbol!

Louis told the magazine: “I don’t really feel like a sex symbol. I try not to get carried away.

“I’ve come from very little, so you just appreciate what you’ve got. I don’t want to flaunt it, it could be gone at any moment.”
