Danny Mac will dance in his pants to win Strictly Come Dancing

Hollyoaks actor Danny Mac says he'll strip to his pants on Strictly Come Dancing, if it gets him votes.

Danny has already been flashing a lot of flesh on this year's series and the live shows haven't even started.

He revealed previously: "I did the really silly thing. I'm so terrified of being myself on telly on anything. It took me years to agree to do this show, and then I finally embraced it, so I had to embrace the costumes as well. And that was something people were always reminding me about and laughing about.

"And I walked in and I was like, 'You know what, I'm not going to be that guy - I'm going to embrace the entire experience'. So I stupidly said in wardrobe, when they were like, 'Is there anything you don't want to wear?', I went, 'You know what - whatever you think is best'."

The result was a barely-there shirt for the launch earlier this month.

But Danny says he may get more revealing once the eliminations begin.

He told the Daily Star on Sunday newspaper: “If going topless takes people’s attention away from my footwork then I’m more than happy to take off my shirt. If a routine goes really badly I might just rip off the shirt and hope for the best.

“In fact, if it gets me votes I’d dance in my pants”.

And Danny - who has been partnered with pro dancer Oti Mabuse - has an extra reason to stay in the competition.

He explained: “I’m going away with 40 mates for my stag do.

“Most have put bets on me to win, so I’m now under pressure to come up with the goods or they will get revenge while we are away.”

Strictly Come Dancing 2016 returns to BBC One on Friday, September 23 and Saturday, September 24 for the first live shows of the series.
