Simon Webbe has confessed he would've preferred it if one of his Blue bandmates had also signed up to 'Strictly Come Dancing' this year as he would've enjoyed the competition
Simon Webbe wishes he could've gone up against one of his bandmates on 'Strictly Come Dancing'.
The Blue singer has confessed that while he's loving the experience of being on the BBC One celebrity dance contest, he would've loved to compete against one of his bandmates - Duncan James, Lee Ryan or Antony Costa.
He said: "They would all love to do Strictly. It would have been great if one of them was doing it with me as that kind of competition would be amazing."
The 36-year-old star also confessed that his experience of dancing on stage during concerts with his fellow 'One Love' singers in no way prepared him for how hard Strictly is.
Quizzed on whether it was more difficult than performing with Blue, he said: "Oh my God, yes, it's much tougher. Being in Blue is part of my make-up now. I have spent years with my brothers and it is in our blood.
"Strictly is out of my comfort zone, but it's a massive privilege to be part of it."
Meanwhile, Simon is looking forward to his 17-year-old daughter Alanah - from his relationship with ex-girlfriend Nicola Jones - coming along to see him dance soon.
He added to new! magazine: "I am hoping she and her mother will come watch me in the next week or so. We've remained the best of friends and they have both told me to go out there and show everybody what I can do."
