Gregg Wallace might have looked like he had two left feet when he took to the ‘Strictly Come Dancing’ dancefloor in 2014, but that wasn’t the reason he was voted off the show after just two weeks, according to the ‘Masterchef’ presenter.
The 51-year-old reckons his early exit from the BBC dance show was actually down to his professional dance partner, Aliona Vilani.
Gregg says the the 32-year-old Russian didn’t “like” him, and if they’d actually hit it off then he’d have got a lot further in the competition.
Gregg then went on to tell the mag that despite his love of puddings, he reckons he’s in the best shape of his life.
"I don't believe in diets. I believe in gradual lifestyle changes. I'm so fit now. I'm 12st 5lb and have less than 20 per cent body fat. I'm going for lunch today with my beautiful fiancee and we'll share a bottle of wine. You don't need to live like a monk."
Despite not having the greatest experience on ‘Strictly’, Gregg hasn’t ruled out appearing on more reality shows - including ‘I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!’
"If they want to give me a sack of treasure, I'd go into the jungle," he revealed.
Gregg previously revealed he “absolutely hated” his time on ‘Strictly’ - so much so that he was reduced to tears in rehearsals.
Gregg added that he wasn’t paid enough for the “hell” he ended up being put through, stating: “I was so bad my face broke out in cold sores, that’s how stressed I was! it was incredible, I’d never experienced anything like it. I was in tears on the second week.”
