Are you a fan of the Strictly Come Dancing?

How can you not be a fan? Simon (Webbe) is still talking about his experience four years later!

Have you any previous dance experience?

I did learn dance at Italia Conti when I was young but it was never my favourite class. I used to sneak out and wait for the singing lessons! I asked my son Rain if I am good dancer, he said no…

What will be your biggest challenge during Strictly?

Learning all the different routines, I am so out of my comfort zone with this. All we have in Blue is a shoulder move!

Have you been given any advice or helpful tips by anyone?

Simon has been a great help, he just told me to watch and listen to everyone around me and give it my best and that’s all I can do.

How far do you hope to make it in the competition?

I’m in it to win it!

How have people reacted to you taking part?

Once we knew it was happening, my manager told me I couldn’t tell anyone, there’s always this big secret about Strictly so I think for many it was a shock when it was announced. Even the band didn’t know! The feedback has been good; I have had a lot of phone calls and text messages!
