Alan Carr turns down Strictly every year and jokes 'slutdrop' is signature move


Alan Carr is adamant that he won’t be appearing on Strictly Come Dancing any time soon.

The 43-year-old will feature alongside professional dancer Oti Mabuse on Friday night’s episode of The Graham Norton Show.

And while discussing how his marriage has changed since his husband Paul moved onto a farm, the host couldn’t help but quiz the comedian over a potential ballroom debut.

‘They ask me to do it every year,’ Alan confessed as he added: ‘And I say “no,” because it’s too much like hard work.’

However, that doesn’t mean the Chatty Man can’t dance, as he went onto joke about his signature move being the slutdrop.

Alan said: ‘I used to be able to slutdrop, but I can’t anymore, I’m at that age. I like Oops Upside Your Head because you get to sit down!’

He then went head to head with the studio audience in a dance-off, seeing Oti step into her sister Motsi’s shoes and judge the competition.

After the energetic performance, the funny-man spoke about his living arrangements, adding: ‘Paul has a farm, but I love London. I go to see him and I mince around in my wellies, which is enough for me.

‘I don’t like excessive eye contact with animals that are pooing.  It’s not me – I like espresso martinis in London. So, he comes to London and I go down there – we have the best of both.’

While Alan is sure that he won’t be putting on his dancing shoes, it has recently been reported that bosses of the show fear Oti will not come back after rumours of a romance with Kelvin Fletcher made headlines.

The drama all began after Kelvin’s wife Liz Marsland unfollowed him on Instagram after pictures of him on a night out with Strictly dance partner Oti emerged.

The Emmerdale actor, 36, was spotted out with the professional dancer in the early hours of the morning, grabbing a nightcap at the Sanctum Soho Hotel.

They had previously been partying with their fellow Strictly stars and were seen heading into the hotel at around 3.30am, according to MailOnline, with the BBC winner looking tense on the phone just hours later.

However, there is no suggestion the pair are anything more than good friends, with both parties keen to brush off speculation.

The Graham Norton Show airs tonight on BBC One at 10.35pm.
