Professional dancer Aljaž Škorjanec won't quit 'Strictly Come Dancing' and insists he will be on the show as long the producers still want him
Aljaž Škorjanec has no plans to quit 'Strictly Come Dancing'.
The professional dancer - who performed on the BBC One series with 'Call the Midwife' star Helen George last series - doesn't see himself "doing anything else" but the show and insists he will have to be booted off rather than quit.
He said: "I love doing the show, I love being a part of it, so I don't see myself doing anything else in the near future.
"So as long as [the producers] want to see me on screen, I will be on screen. And if not ... I will be on the radio."
And whilst him and Helen failed to triumph during the televised competition, he is looking forward to heading out for the 'Strictly Come Dancing Live!' tour in the hopes they will secure the win because the trophy is much bigger than the Glitterball trophy given to the winner of the show.
He added to the Daily Express newspaper: "People don't know that if you win the tour, which is whoever wins the most dates, it's bigger than the trophy you get on TV."
Meanwhile, with Ola Jordan, Kristina Rihanoff and Aliona Vilani quitting the show, bosses are keen to recruit some sexy female dancers ahead of the new series.
Of Gleb Savchenko's wife Elena Samodanova, a source said: "Elena would be perfect on the show and Gleb really missed her last year. Losing three such popular dancers will be a real blow unless we move quickly to sign up the best, most creative and captivating dancers."
