Strictly Come Dancing spotlight: Thom Evans

The former rugby star is ready to hit the ballroom.

Thom Evans

Former rugby player turned model Thom Evans will be providing serious guy candy when he takes to the ballroom for the new series of Strictly Come Dancing.

Why did Thom sign up for Strictly? ‘I’ve watched the show for the last couple of years and everyone involved, from the celebrities, to the dancers and the judges always look like they’re having such an amazing amount of fun and I always said to myself that if the opportunity presented itself, I would always take it.’

Does Thom have any dancing skills? ‘Absolutely no dancing whatsoever. Except that I’ve watched countless videos on Youtube – Youtube is great for that these days – and practised a couple of times in the mirror to get some of the certain styles and gestures!’

What is he looking for in a dance partner? ‘Someone who’s definitely going to push me. I’m going to need a lot of work! But someone who will acknowledge when I’ve done something right and give me some sort of encouragement. Someone who’s driven and wanting to push the boundaries. I’m a pretty driven person as it is so I don’t really need to be kicked up the backside so I’d want someone on the same level.’

Strictly Come Dancing returns at 8pm Sunday on BBC One. Watch Thom’s launch interview below:
