Speaking of which he hopes Strict will improve his fitness, he said: “My biggest challenge will be my weight and fitness, I’m a big guy and I think I’m strong but think of me as a rhino where I can have a short burst of energy and then I’m done after that.

“So I don’t want to be a rhino, I want to be a dolphin constantly moving through water, which can take hours and hours. I want to be the strongest I’ve ever been in my life. I am a former rugby player. What we do in rugby is very different than what we do on the dance floor, but I expect a lot of that will be broadcast.”
