Harry Judd is so ''obsessed'' with winning 'Strictly Come Dancing' he refuses to take a day off from rehearsing
Harry Judd refuses to take a day off from 'Strictly Come Dancing' because he's so "obsessed" with winning.
The McFly drummer - who is favourite to win the BBC One show - puts his full focus into rehearsing for the competition with his professional partner Aliona Vilani, but he will be "disappointed" if he doesn't triumph on the programme after training for 72 hours a week.
He said: "I admit I am a bit of an obsessive. I'm a perfectionist. People keep telling me to take a day off, but I refuse.
"I'd be lying if I said I didn't really want to win it. I'll be disappointed if I don't. I can't concentrate on anything else. I'm in the zone."
The 25-year-old star is so focused on winning 'Strictly' he has given up alcohol and goes straight to bed after the live shows because he is "so exhausted".
Harry explained in an interview with the Daily Mail newspaper: "I don't enjoy drinking any more. I only ever used to drink to get drunk. I could drink if I wanted to, but I don't. I'd rather get to bed, as I'm so exhausted."
But he is feeling pressured to triumph in the competition after his McFly bandmate Dougie Poynter won ITV1 reality show 'I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here!' earlier this month.
He added: "Before Dougie went into the jungle we joked, 'Imagine if we both won.' Now Dougie has and I'm in the semis."
