Robert Webb dances on Strictly

David Mitchell has surprised fans with his love of Strictly Come Dancing.

The actor has been tweeting enthusiastically about the series, which his Peep Showco-star Robert Webb is appearing on this year.

“Here we go! Good luck, @arobertwebb!” he posted ahead of his comedy partner’s performance.

After Webb’s dance was finished, Mitchell posted: “Well I thought that was f***ing splendid!”

But it wasn’t only Webb’s performance he was into, he appears to be a big fan of the dancing competition in general, having tweeted this post earlier in the night: “With the ones where they’re sort of formally dancing about holding onto each other like at a tea dance, it’s IMPOSSIBLE to predict what the judges will say.

“If it seems a bit bland, they often go nuts for it, and if it’s a bit romantic or moving, they complain about the ankles.”

Mitchell’s followers were delighted with the tweets, with one person commenting: “Honestly this tweet make me want you to become a new presenter of Strictly.”

“This is so similar to my husband’s commentary on Strictly, that I had to double-check this tweet wasn’t for him,” added another.

“I’m very much enjoying your live Strictly tweeting,” said a third.

Strictly Come Dancing continues on Saturday nights on BBC One.
