As families gather round the box for the Strictly Come Dancing special, Adrian Chiles says he’s lacking the festive glow – after turning down a spray tan.

The TV host also revealed he WON’T be tuning in to see himself prancing round the dancefloor.

He said: “I’ll go for a walk when the Strictly Christmas Special is on. I can’t stand watching myself.”

Adrian, performing an American smooth to Otis Redding’s version of White Christmas with new pro dancer Jowita Przystal, admitted he had been terrified when he started rehearsing. And his family and pals were not exactly supportive.

He said: “They were absolutely horrified. Even though my mum’s a massive fan of the show, she said, ‘Oh God!’.” But he believes videos from his training may have won them over. Adrian, too, had a change of heart after dancing with Jowita.

He said: “I wouldn’t have missed it, it’s been a real privilege. Dread and doubt gets you nowhere. I’m 54, it might be too late to alter my mental state but this has been a wake-up call to actually just do that.”

But the former One Show and sports presenter confessed he had not got fully into the Strictly spirit.

He was twice asked if he wanted to wear fake tan and had said no.

And rehearsals were so tough he considered skipping the country.

Adrian added: “I might feel like that after the show goes out – you never know.”
