Dancing On Ice 2013: Keith Chegwin eyes Strictly Come Dancing!

Keith Chegwin (Dancing On Ice 2013)

Axed Dancing On Ice 2013 star Keith Chegwin has revealed he's now looking to compete in Strictly Come Dancing!

The comedian finally got the axe in last night's Dancing On Ice 2013 results after being voted into the bottom two for a fourth time.

Keith was in the bottom two with Samia Ghadie, but the judges didn't save him again as they voted three to one to keep the Corrie actress.

Speaking to DOI hosts Christine Bleakley and Phillip Schofield after his exit, Keith said: “I have waited a year to be in this show and I have loved every minute of it.

"The people in Basingstoke that helped me coach, the people here as well and Olga has been such a treat.”

Now Keith is looking forward to taking on another reality show, and has his eyes on Strictly Come Dancing

"It’s been lovely being an athlete rather than an old fat g**," he told The Sun newspaper today. “Now I wake up and feel fit, I’m ready to go. I’ve never been this fit in my life.

“The morning after leaving Dancing On Ice, I was itching to use up some energy and ended up jogging around the set of Life’s Too Short like a buffoon.”

Keith revealed he had previously turned down the chance to appear in Strictly, but would definitely say yes if they were to ask again.

“I would love to carry on skating but it takes up a lot of time. So I’m going to learn to dance to help keep me fit — because you can do it in your kitchen," he said. “If they ask again I’d definitely give it a go. I don’t want to stop exercising and end up a pudding.”

Next weekend’s seventh live show will see the remaining five skaters – Matt Lapinskas, Luke Campbell, Garteh Thomas, Beth Tweddle and Samia Ghadie – take on props week.
