Michael McIntyre reveals why his wife wouldn’t ‘allow’ him to do Strictly

Michael McIntyre has jokingly revealed why he thinks his wife wouldn’t want him to be on Strictly.

The comedian appeared on The One Show on Thursday (14 October) alongside contestant Tom Fletcher and his dance partner Amy Dowden.

Co-host Ronan Keating used the opportunity to tell McIntyre that professional dancer Luba Mushtuk once said he would be her dream celebrity partner.

At this moment, a photo of Mushtuk, posing in a promotional shot for the show, appeared on the screen, prompting McIntyre to quip: “Goodness, I don’t think my wife would allow me, looking at that photograph.”

He continued: “I didn’t know that, I didn’t know I was in anybody’s dreams. That’s very exciting. I would only consider Strictly as one of the pro dancers.”

McIntyre was interviewed from Los Angeles via a video link.
