Strictly Come Dancing 2012: Michael Vaughan thinks Louis Smith has already won

Michael Vaughan (Strictly Come Dancing)

Michael Vaughan has said he thinks Louis Smith has already won Strictly Come Dancing, but hopes Kimberley Walsh will take the glitterball trophy!

Michael was given the boot from the show last weekend after finding himself in the dance off for the third time this series.

Speaking to the Daily Telegraph, Michael admitted it was unlikely he's continue to dance seriously once next year's live tour is over.

He said: "Once I’ve done the tour I’ll be back to taking the p--- on the dance floor. I understand music now and I guess I stay in time a bit better but it’ll be time to get back to a bit of daddy dancing.

"I was out with my wife on Saturday night celebrating and people were trying to get us to dance. But I’m basically a lad who sits on a stool at the back of a bar."

He added: "As for who’ll win, I think Louis Smith’s already done so, don’t you? Though personally I’d choose Kimberley, I think she’s brilliant."

Meanwhile, Michael ruled out any more reality shows for the time being.

He said: "Going forward, I don’t think I’ll do more reality shows, but I’d like to do more telly. On the train everyone wants to talk to me now. And the good thing is they’ve liked the way I’ve come across, and I always set out just to be myself on the show. "
