ALAN Carr has revealed he turned down Strictly Come Dancing's offer to dance in a same sex couple because he'd find it "too arousing".
The 44-year-old comedian explained that why he gets asked to join the lineup "every year" on the BBC show, he couldn't face dancing with sexy Strictly pros Aljaz Škorjanec and Gorka Marquez.
Speaking on his podcast Life's A Beach, he told listeners it would be impossible to perform any sensual dances as it would "make him hard".
"I get asked to do Strictly every year," he explained. "I get asked about what I think about same-sex dancing and I say no.
"Their eyes light up and go 'oh my god' and I say no because I'd get a lob on if I dance with Aljaz or Gorka. I would be so hard."
Joking he finds "bus vibrations" arousing, he added: "If I get on a bus, the vibrations make me hard. So doing the Argentine tango, forget it, that's a sexy dance."
He concluded that while he'd "love to do Strictly", it wouldn't happen if he would be dancing with a man.
It comes as Strictly Come Dancing bosses revealed they are considering placing TWO same-sex couples in the 2021 line-up.
The idea was driven by the BBC show's first female pairing Katya Jones and Nicola Adams, who went down a storm with viewers last year.
"Bosses are still looking at all the options but given the positive feedback from last year, they're seriously considering having two same-sex couples, one male and one female," our TV insider said.
"The show has to move forward and viewers loved last year's series."
Strictly's first ever same-sex dance occured between Johannes Radebe, 34, and Graziano Di Prima, 26, during the 2019 series.
Pro dancer Katya, 30, and boxing champ Nicola, 38, sparked complaints from a small number of viewers when they danced together in the Strictly final.
However last month the BBC said the complaints about alleged "blatant projection of homosexuality" had been rejected and "not upheld".
Judge Craig Revel Horwood, 55, called the complaints ridiculous at the time, adding of the pairing: "It’s about time and I think it’s absolutely brilliant, I really do."
The BBC also responded by saying they were "proud" of its same-sex performances, adding: "The show is first and foremost about dance, the sex of each partner within a pairing should have no bearing on their routine."
Bosses are keen on a wide range of celebs across different sectors and of varying ages signing up this year so the show can appeal to different fanbases — and maintain its position as the most-watched entertainment show on the box.
