Luisa Zissman on refusing Strictly as she speaks out on joining rival show

Luisa Zissman said she would turn down taking part in Strictly Come Dancing if asked as she admitted it could be bad for her knees.

The former Big Brother star spoke exclusively to and has teamed up with David Lloyd Clubs to help inspire the nation to re-establish their September wellness routines ahead of World Wellness Weekend (15th – 17th September).

Addressing the BBC show, she commented: “I don’t how my knees would be on Strictly.

“I would quite like to do The Masked Singer or The Masked Dancer just for the giggles. That would be quite fun. I like that show.”

Luisa, 36, said she would not mind taking part in the rival show Dancing On Ice which airs on ITV.

“I would like to do Dancing On Ice but I have bad ankles,” she commented.”I’m not sure I would pass the medical for that show.”

Meanwhile, Luisa has slowly got back into her routine for September as the mum of three teamed up with David Lloyd Clubs to urge parents to get back into normality.

New research provided by the UK’s leading health and wellness group, reveals that although some feel re-charged and re-energised after a summer of fun, 18 per cent of people admit holidays can make them feel unhealthy while 26 per cent feel in a slump from drinking too much alcohol.

Nearly half of Brits feel anxious and stressed due to work, family, or social commitments, while almost half of Brits use September as a chance to focus on their wellbeing and reset their routine.

David Lloyd Clubs have introduced friendly in-house experts, a weekly timetable of classes and enjoyable activities for parents and kids alike, to help families to prioritise wellness even for those with busy schedules.

Luisa said: “I find that mapping out a weekly planner for the whole family including after school clubs, time for exercise, rest and relaxation, as well as quality time together is the way we can try and prioritise the things that make us feel good both mentally and physically, without feeling rushed off our feet.

“This September, I’m making sure to schedule regular time into the planner to head down to our local David Lloyd Clubs and make the most of the facilities as it’s the perfect place for us all to spend some time either alone or together doing the activities that we love and enjoy both individually and as a family.”

David Lloyd Clubs across the UK will be celebrating World Wellness Weekend and selected David Lloyd Clubs will also be running a Wellness Open Weekend to allow members of the public to enjoy a range of holistic activities for free.
