Joe McElderry says it would be "so much fun" to compete on 'Strictly Come Dancing'

Joe McElderry wants to compete on 'Strictly Come Dancing'.

The former 'X Factor' winner thinks it would be "fun" to take part in BBC One's dance contest which pairs a star with a professional dancer before hailing a champion at the end of each series.

He told The Sun newspaper: "I would love to do something like 'Strictly Come Dancing'. That would be so much fun. I'm a bit of a frustrated dancer, so that would be nice."

Earlier this week Joe won 'The Jump' after he managed to pull off a 17.5m jump from a 40m ski ramp, beating fellow finalist Donal MacIntyre.

Although he sustained many injuries during his time on Channel 4's winter sports competition he insists he had a great time and would "do it all over again".

He explained: "I had a bruised arm, a bruised thigh, a bruised leg but mostly I was fortunate. It was only bruises. I did the Skeleton, which obviously wasn't shown on TV, but I bashed myself quite badly on the run down and I did fear for my life. I'm not afraid to admit it - I was petrified."

And added: "I would do it all over again. I had so much fun."
