Judy Murray and Anton du Beke on 'Strictly Come Dancing'

Judy Murray's son Andy has claimed he has no intention of following in his older brother Jamie's footsteps by going to see her perform on 'Strictly Come Dancing'

Judy Murray's son doesn't want to watch her on 'Strictly Come Dancing'.

The tennis coach - who is partnered with Anton du Beke on the BBC One celebrity dance contest - is mother to former Wimbledon champion Andy Murray, who claims he has no interest in going along to the live show, as his older brother Jamie did last week.

Andy - who has been competing in tournaments across the world for the past few months - is set to return to his home in Surrey next week but insists he won't be going to watch his mother dance at the studio in London.

He told the Daily Telegraph newspaper: "I'm quite looking forward to getting back and being in my own bed and my home for quite a few days, rather than watching some very average dancing."

However, the 27-year-old star confessed he is glad Judy - who has been described as having "rigour mortis" by the Strictly judges - is enjoying herself.

He added: "I've only seen two of the dances but she is having a good time, that's the most important thing.

"From what she's said to me it's been the best fun she's had in such a long time, learning something new.

"Her partner's been just loads of fun. But for her it's tough on the body. She's doing six hours of dancing three days a week to get ready and then do the show.

"Being in heels and stuff - she doesn't normally wear them, she's normally in trainers. So for her it's quite tough physically which I don't think she was really expecting."

Judy is set to transform into Cruella de Vil on tonight's (01.11.14) Halloween themed show.
