Louis Smith admits he is "quite shy" around women and has had no time to date because of his 'Strictly Come Dancing' rehearsal schedule

Louis Smith is "quite shy" around women.

The 'Strictly Come Dancing' contestant admits he's keen to find his ideal woman, despite having a lack of time to date due to his eight-hour-a-day training sessions for the BBC One talent show.

When asked if he's confident with women, he replied: "Not really. I'm actually quite shy!

"I wouldn't say that I find it uncomfortable but I do like my own space. And you don't get that after what's happened.

"I'm browsing! If she comes along, I'm not going to kick her out the door. But I've not got time to look and go out on dates."

The 23-year-old Olympian is enjoying wearing some "crazy" 'Strictly' costumes for his routines but he is glad he doesn't have to wear the garments while out and about on a daily basis.

He added: "I wouldn't say I'm loving the outfits but I'm definitely enjoying putting on some crazy things. You probably wouldn't be able to get away with it on a daily basis!

"Some of the stuff is funky."
