Jason Donovan has revealed his best friend Gary Barlow has gone to visit him during rehearsals for 'Strictly Come Dancing'

Gary Barlow wants to take part in 'Strictly Come Dancing'.

The Take That singer has been down to see best friend Jason Donovan in action during rehearsals for the BBC One show, and even fancies a go himself - despite him being head judge on rival programme ITV1 programme 'The X Factor'.

Jason said: "Gary is a huge fan of 'Strictly Come Dancing'. Secretly, I know he fancies himself wearing full-on sequins, with a shaved chest and open shirt. It's just a shame he's busy with 'The X Factor'.

"Gary has actually visited me at 'Strictly.', too. Obviously it wasn't on a Saturday! It was during one of my rehearsals in London and he came to support me. Gary's wife came to see the live show, too - she's a big fan. They both come from dance-related backgrounds, so they really love the show." 

However, the former 'Neighbours' actor doesn't think Gary will be jumping ship any time soon as he believes the singer is the "best man" for the 'X Factor' head judge role formerly filled by Simon Cowell.

Jason added in an interview with heat magazine: "It's taken a while for it to find its rhythm, but Gary is the best man for the job."
