Comedian Russell Kane believes appearing on 'Let's Dance For Comic Relief' has helped him get in touch with his feminine side
Russell Kane thinks appearing on 'Let's Dance For Comic Relief' has helped him get in touch with his feminine side.
The 30-year-old comedian - who was voted through to the final of the competition after donning a blonde wig and a dress to perform Beyonce's 'Crazy In Love' - admitted while he loved dressing up as a woman, it would bring back some "bad memories" for co-finalist Katie Price.
He explained: "Oh no, although I'm now even more in touch with my feminine side. I was gossiping all day and flirting with the security guys.
"I think me dressing up brought back some rather bad memories for Katie Price, though."
Following the performance, Russell has been bombarded with messages by women on social networking websites - one of whom even claimed he had "turned her lesbian".
He added: "I wasn't expecting the amount of straight women who've sent me pervy twitter and Facebook messages. I got a message from a girl claiming that I'd turned her lesbian.
"I've had gay guys asking me out, too. I thought they just loved my dancing and comedy until I was walking off the stage and one of the girls went past security and tried to rip my dress off!"
