Ainsley Turned Down Strictly

While some celebrities are dying for the call, TV chef Ainsley Harriott tuned down Strictly Come Dancing.

He told DigitalSpy: "I was asked to do some dancing, but we're talking about a serious commitment there. It's eight or so hours every day. Plus, I don't know about you, but Strictly this time around had lost a bit of fun. There were people who had half-trained beforehand as musicians and actors, where dancing was part of their work. That's why when Sergeant was in there, the public said, 'Keep him in, we want to smile'."

I think Ainsley would have made a fantastic participant. He's flamboyant and fun loving, and I'm sure would have embraced the competition.
