“We’d be great fun, cursing and shouting, watching Strictly.”

But Louis said that there some shows he would never, ever do.

“I would never do Strictly because I can’t dance. It’s not for me. I wouldn’t do The Voice, I couldn’t do it – I have slagged it off too much and I like doing this show and working with Simon,” he said.
