Strictly Come Dancing 2013 line up: JLS' JB Gill turns down main series

JLS JB

JLS star JB Gill has turned down an invitation to join the Strictly Come Dancing 2013 line up.

The singer took part in last year's Christmas special, winning the show with his Jive to Rockin' Robin together with pro dancer Ola Jordan.

And while he was invited to take part in the main series this autumn - and wanted to accept it - JB revealed he had to turn it down.

"I can't do the next series of Strictly because I'm on tour with the boys, but if I was free, it's something I would have loved to have done," he said.

"They did ask me to do it this year, but I couldn't. But if they ask me again next year, then yeah, absolutely, I'd consider it."

Perhaps next year, eh?

Meanwhile, JB, who will have some spare time on his hands once JLS call it a day at the end of the year, revealed he'd be up for joining a show like The X Factor or The voice.

He told the Press Association this month: "I'd love to continue mentoring. I don't know if any of the reality shows, like The X Factor, are currently looking for new mentors, but it would be lovely to be involved in that side of the industry as well."

"Often it's difficult for people breaking through to know the right things, know the wrong things, to know what to do."
