The dancing pro was last seen on the show in 2013, when he was partnered with 'Tracy Beaker' actress Dani Harmer, and he's now said that was the perfect time to leave.
Vincent complains that the show's appeal has been diminished with the use of special effects, props and other people on the dance floor, and he slams the show for trying to imitate its American counterpart, 'Dancing With The Stars'.
He says: "It works in America because in America everything is big, but I don't know. I think there was something about the simplicity of just a man and a woman dancing, in my opinion."
Vincent's previous partners on 'Strictly' included Edwina Currie and singer Rachel Stevens, with whom he succeeded in reaching the final . Vincent's professional partner Flavia Cacace previously departed the competition, and the pair are now touring with their farewell show 'The Last Tango'.
