Roman Kemp has revealed that he auditioned for Strictly Come Dancing but quickly realised taking part would be too much effort.

The radio host, 28, appears on this week's episode of The Jonathan Ross Show with his dad Martin Kemp, who gets asked if he would ever do Strictly.

While Martin, 59, says he'd love to take part in a future series, Roman isn't so sure as he knows it'd take a lot committment and hard work.

Martin says: "I think it's one of the best shows on television, I absolutely love it.

"Would I do it? Maybe, but I'd only last one round.

"My knees are so bad. I'm sure I'd be out first round."

Roman adds: "I would like to do it, they did ask me.

"I ended up going, it's like an audition. if I'm totally honest, I had a great time, but it's too much effort. It's so hard. It's so hard."

Oti Mabuse, one of the Strictly professional dancers, is also on the show, and Martin tells her: "Roman said he'd only do it if you were his partner [Oti]."

"100%. I'd only do it if they were like, 'You can be with Oti,'" Roman admits.

Oti then tells him they should do it, and Roman laughs, telling her: "Don't get ahead of yourself Oti..."

Oti won the last series of Strictly Come Dancing alongside her celebrity dance partner, comedian Bill Bailey.

It was the second year in a row that she won the competition, as she lifted the glitterball trophy with Emmerdale actor Kelvin Fletcher in 2019 too.
