Blue singer Simon Webbe is determined to win the 'Strictly Come Dancing' Christmas special
Simon Webbe is determined to win the 'Strictly Come Dancing' Christmas special.
The Blue singer is taking part in a one-off edition the BBC One dancing show on Christmas Day (25.12.11) and admitted he is desperate to be crowned the winner, as he always like to be victorious.
He said: "I always do things to win and 'Strictly' is no different. I think I have a good chance."
As well as taking part in 'Strictly', Simon also plans to propose to girlfriend Maria Kouka over the festive period.
He told The Sun newspaper: "I have already planned how I am going to propose to Maria - but I can't tell you how as it will spoil the surprise. I am besotted."
Other stars set to take part in the 'Strictly' Christmas special include 'EastEnders' actress Charlie Brooks and former Deputy Prime Minister John Prescott, who is a huge fan of the show and was thrilled when bosses asked him to compete.
He recently said: "My wife Pauline and I are big fans of 'Strictly Come Dancing'. We've danced together for over 30 years and love watching the show.
"I do get asked by a lot of people why I don't go on the show. I tell them I did enough dancing around in politics to do it all again on stage in front of millions of viewers every week."
