Tom Parker turned down an offer to take part on Strictly Come Dancing.

The Wanted star Tom revealed that even though he enjoys the BBC One celebrity dancing show, he's not confident that he would do well on it.

Tom told Radio Times magazine: "I'm literally awful at dancing. I've had the meeting before and as much as I'd enjoy the show, I want to go into something knowing that I'd probably be alright at it.

"I'm my own worst enemy when it comes to being good at things."

Tom also said that his dancer girlfriend Kelsey Hardwick discouraged him from signing up, saying he had "two left feet".

More recently, Tom was seen competing on Channel 4 winter sports show The Jump.

He was initially in Austria on standby, but he was eventually drafted in to replace an injured Tina Hobley, and he was a strong competitor as he reached the finals.
