Strictly Come Dancing 2014: Andy Murray would rather relax than watch 'very average dancing' from mother Judy

"I'm quite looking forward to getting back and being in my own bed and my home for quite a few days," the tennis player admitted

Those expecting to tune in and see Andy Murray cheering on his mother Judy in the Strictly Come Dancing audience, prepare to be disappointed.

The former Wimbledon champion said that he’d much prefer to unwind in the comfort of his own abode after six weeks of international tennis tournaments than sit on the sidelines of the BBC competition.

“I'm quite looking forward to getting back and being in my own bed and my home for quite a few days, rather than watching some very average dancing,” he told The Telegraph.

“I've only seen two of the dances, but she is having a good time - that's the most important thing. From what she's said to me, it's been the best fun she's had in such a long time, learning something new.”

He went on to heap praise on Anton du Beke, Judy’s professional dance partner, for being “loads of fun”.

“But for her it's tough on the body,” he continued.

 

“She's doing six hours of dancing three days a week to get ready and then they do the show.

“Being in heels and stuff - she doesn't normally wear them, she's normally in trainers. So for her it's quite tough physically, which I don't think she was really expecting.”

Andy’s brother, tennis player Jamie Murray, attended Strictly Come Dancing to watch his mother dance the Charleston last week.

Yesterday, Murray and Du Beke dazzled with an American Smooth. The judges awarded them 20 points for their effort.
