Piers Morgan claims he was offered thousands of pounds to appear on both 'Strictly Come Dancing' and 'Dancing with the Stars' but is too embarrassed to dance on TV
Piers Morgan has been offered £200,000 to appear on 'Dancing with the Stars'.
The British journalist claims he was offered the huge sum to strut his stuff on the popular US dance show and received similar offers from the UK equivalent, 'Strictly Come Dancing', but would never consider the fees because he would be embarrassed by his moves.
He said: "This year I have been offered a lot of money to do 'Strictly' - I think it was six figures, and 'Dancing with the Stars' in America, which was a lot of money, about $300,000 (almost £200,000).
"But there is not enough money in Fort Knox to get me to dance in public. However, a bottle of Jack Daniel's is a different matter.
"I had my 50th recently and Amanda Holden and me were doing the old bongo dance until 3am, which was very impressive.
"In that situation I'll dance, but not on national TV."
However the ex-patriot - who resides in the US - insisted he is usually up for reality TV and loved his stint on the UK's 'Celebrity Apprentice', even though he was kicked off because Lord Alan Sugar is a "twisted little Spurs fan".
Piers, 50, told The Sun newspaper: "I did 'Celebrity Apprentice' in the UK and did one challenge, raised the most money of any contestant and I was the one who got fired because Alan Sugar is a bitter and twisted little Spurs fan.
"On the back of it, I went to take part in a real billionaires show, the one in America with Donald Trump. I won it, which is indicative of my real standing when it comes to that show."
