On GMTV this Sunday, Vince Cable will declare his ambition to appear on Strictly Come Dancing:
Steve Richards: …as many of the newspapers have commented in recent days, you enjoy a bit of the ballroom dancing. Are you watching Strictly Come Dancing?
Vince Cable: I watch it religiouslyâ€¦
Steve Richards: I thought you did!
Vince Cable: â€¦every week. Yes, itâ€™s a wonderful programme. Bruce Forsyth is of course just over the top but actually the judges are great, the dancers are great. Iâ€™m backing Alesha, this very beautiful and very talented dancer.
Steve Richards: Right.
Vince Cable: No, itâ€™s great entertainment.
Steve Richards: Would you like to be on it?
Vince Cable: Wellâ€¦ youâ€™re tempting me! If I received an invite Iâ€™d find it very difficult to turn down.
Steve Richards: Right, well thereâ€™s another series in the pipeline Iâ€™m sure, so you could be there! OK, well if not leader of the Lib Dems after this very successful period, perhaps victorious candidate in a future series of Strictly Come Dancing.
Vince Cable: Yes, thatâ€™s a real ambition, a serious ambition! [laughs].
Well, that’s settled then.
