Jason Donovan glued to Strictly
Jason Donovan prefers watching 'Strictly' from the comfort of his armchair rather than competing in it
Jason Donavan is glued to 'Strictly Come Dancing' this year.
The Australian singer and actor took part in the BBC competition last year - where he was partnered with Kristina Rihanoff - but is finding this year more enjoyable as he can watch it from the "comfort" of his own living and enjoy a drink while he does so.
He said: "I'm loving it from the comfort of my armchair with a glass of wine and thinking, 'Entertain me!'
"I'd rather be there than back on 'Strictly'. I know exactly what the competitors are going through. It's totally nerve-wracking ... but a great experience."
Jason finished third in last year's competition, which was won by Harry Judd.
However, now the star is focused on having some time out with his family.
He told SoapLife magazine: "I'm just enjoying being a dad for a bit. I've been working so much, both in the UK and in Australia, and I miss my three children.
"My youngest Molly is 18 months old and I'm loving being a dad to a little one again."
