Peter Andre has revealed he's turned down a spot on the Strictly Come Dancing 2013 line up.

The singer (of sorts) admitted he loves the show, and claimed that it was the fourth time that bosses had invited him to take part.

But the reality star said he was too busy to take the time off from working to compete in the BBC One series.

"I think Strictly's a really good show," he said. "I really like it because I've danced for years, but it's quite a few months you have to do it for and because our work is so full on, we don't have that."

Speaking to DigitalSpy, he added: "The other thing is that I could not see myself wearing the spandex. I could do everything else on that show, except for wearing those tight trousers.

"I think the outfits look great on the girls and some of the guys can pull it off, but it just doesn't suit me."


Strictly Come Dancing returns for its 11th series at the end of the year.

Some of the stars already rumoured to be on the show include former X factor winner Joe McElderry and TOWIE’s Mark Wright, as well as footballer Michael Owen and Cheryl Cole.

Meanwhile both Big Brother host Davina McCall and Mark’s fellow former TOWIE cast member Lauren Pope have said they’d be up for competing.
