‘Strictly Come Dancing’: Sir Patrick Stewart Reveals That He Previously Wanted To Sign Up For The Show

It turns out that, like many of us, the veteran actor loves a bit of a ‘Strictly’ on a Saturday night, and speaking while guest-hosting ‘Have I Got News For You?’, his adoration for the show became clear.

He said:  “’Strictly Come Dancing’, it’s a wonderful show, it’s delightful. I wanted to [do it] at the beginning…”

Well, Patrick continued: “And then the tone, it changed somewhat, and I thought…. yeah, I’ll pass.”

Quite frankly, we’re hoping he’ll reconsider.

‘Strictly’ will return to our screens this summer, and it’s not just celebrity contestants that the BBC needs to recruit this year.

She said: “I suppose maybe it would be Craig – but he’s a bit of a producer now. He produces a lot behind the scenes.

“Bossiest judge was Len, but it was his job to be bossy and so he should have been – but I don’t know who would come in next.”
