Richard Arnold has been so consumed by 'Strictly Come Dancing' that he has begun dreaming about it
Richard Arnold has been dreaming about 'Strictly Come Dancing'.
The showbiz journalist - who is teamed with Erin Boag on the BBC series - has been taking the contest so seriously he has even been thinking about it subconsciously.
He said: "You have to take it seriously. I even dream about the show. It's a perpetual level of excitement and terror everyday."
The 'Daybreak' presenter also has celebrity supporters, including 'Skyfall' director Sam Mendes.
Richard said: "Dawn French told me she'd be voting for me. And Sam Mendes came up to me and the first thing he said was, 'How's the dancing going, mate?'
He also joked he was surprised Girls Aloud star Kimberley Walsh was taking part as she can't be doing it for the money.
He added to Star magazine: "We're all on the same page. I turned to Kimberley Walsh the other night and I said, 'I read that Girls Aloud are worth a fortune, what are you doing this for? I'm only doing it to get some extra tiles for my bathroom."
