Will Jack Whitehall take part in Strictly Come Dancing next year?


Comic Jack Whitehall has spoken about taking part in Strictly Come Dancing next year.

It's after winding up Jamie Redknapp, husband of current Strictly contestant Louise Rekdnapp, over the so-called Strictly curse.

Jack - who works alongside Jamie on A League Of Their Own - admitted he had been teasing the former footballer.

Speaking on the Jonathan Ross show, he said: “I have to go down, I have to support Louise because I’ve basically been winding Jamie up for the last month about ‘the Strictly curse’… I just was winding Jamie up.

"He was facetiming her every hour. He nearly punched me,” he joked. “Louise is a brilliant dancer and I want her to win, I’m Team Louise.”

Also appearing on the show, Strictly judge Darcey Bussell admitted: “It’s very tactile isn’t it. Celebrities think that the dancers are coming on to them, but they’re not. It’s just the job.”

Speaking about whether he’d ever go on a show like it, Jack joked: “I’d be better if there was an urban Strictly Come Dancing, if you were on the street.

"Maybe if I was in a car park throwing down a bit of the whip nae nae, a few cheeky slut drops."

He laughed: "My dancing is too hardcore for Strictly. I’ve got a wonderful dutty wine as well… I couldn’t do it, I’d be absolutely terrified.”

The Jonathan Ross Show airs Saturday nights at 10:30PM on ITV.
