I’m A Celebrity’s Joe Swash: I’d have a go at Strictly Come Dancing

Former jungle champ and ITV2's I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here! NOW! co-host says he wouldn’t do Big Brother but could be tempted by Strictly


Joe Swash is busy in Australia as co-host for ITV jungle spin-off show I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! NOW!, but we may see him scrub up and don the Strictly sparkles one day.


“I’d have a go at the dancing. I’m not a big dancer, but you’re taking something with you [afterwards]” the 2008 King of the Jungle told RadioTimes.com, when we asked if he’d be up for any other reality show challenges.

Not that the former EastEnders star rates his chances of lifting the glitter ball trophy if he does take part in Strictly Come Dancing. “I’m a terrible dancer. I’d be there for the comedy value. That’d be fine by me.”

Joe, who hosts the I’m A Celebrity extra show with comedian Rob Beckett and presenter Laura Whitmore, is certainly more interested in busting a move on the shiny floor than trying out something like Big Brother.

“I would never do Big Brother purely because that does not suit me. Mentally I’d go to tatters there,” he said.
