'Strictly Come Dancing' contestant Ashley Taylor Dawson insists he still can't dance, despite impressing with his newfound ballroom skills
Ashley Taylor Dawson still can't dance.
The 'Hollyoaks' actor has been impressing the judges on 'Strictly Come Dancing' - on which he is paired with Ola Jordan - but he has realised his newfound ballroom skills don't get him far in everyday situations.
He said: "I've never been a dancer. When you go out with your mates and have a few drinks, you let loose, but I had an awards show a while ago and realised I've learnt nothing. I still can't dance! I can do professional routines, but that's it."
Ashley has been training hard for the show, as well as working on 'Hollyoaks' and admits his hectic schedule - combined with recently becoming a father for the second time - has left him feeling "deranged", though he is still enjoying every minute.
He added to heat magazine: "It's been an incredible experience. Sometimes it's hard because I feel physically and mentally deranged, but I'm still loving it.
"The hardest thing is grabbing food, I lost nearly two stone in the beginning of the show, I'm like a skinny little rake now."
