Tim Vine once rejected the chance to do 'Dancing on Ice' because he was too worried about injuring himself on the skating talent show
Tim Vine once turned down an offer to do 'Dancing on Ice'.
The 45-year-old comedian - who is to star in 'Let's Dance for Comic Relief' - refused to take part in the ITV talent show because he was worried about injuring his tall frame, but he would happily appear on a similar type of programme which isn't as dangerous.
He said: "I got a call from 'Dancing on Ice', but I said no. I'm 6ft 2ins - if I fall over, things are going to break. I don't want to do anything on ice. I said, 'If they come up with a show called 'Dancing on Cushions', come back to me.' "
Tim was the fourth contestant voted out in a celebrity edition of 'Comic Relief Does Fame Academy' in 2007, and admits he would much rather sing on a talent show than show off his moves on the dance floor.
He added to Nuts magazine: "I'd rather sing. You only have one thing to remember - the words. Dancing, there are four things were there. I couldn't remember my limbs!"
Red Nose Day - the main way in which Comic Relief raises money - takes place on March 15th, 2013.
