Jordan Banjo details reason he’d refuse Strictly Come Dancing stint

Jordan Banjo's close call with a snake

Jordan Banjo admitted he has one main “issue” which would stop him from taking part in Strictly Come Dancing.

The Diversity star spoke exclusively to and talked about the current series of the popular dance competition.

When asked if he’d ever want to take part, the 30-year-old replied: “Do you know what, it’s a big commitment.

“Like there are most shows I would say yes to, but…

“Like Perri [Kiely] or Ashley [Banjo], they like to be good at things. When they start something, they want to do it properly.

“Whether it’s Bake Off or SAS: Who Dares Wins, they want to win, even if there’s not a winner, they’re going at it like there’s a winner.

“Me, on the other hand, I’m very happy to just you know, have a laugh.

“But the issue is, with something like Strictly, because it’s ‘what we do’, even though it’s not what we do, people will assume you’re going to be very good.

“And that’s hard, I know dancing, of course, I know there are similarities but there are also massive differences.

“If I brought Roger Federer in and told him to be good at ping pong, he’s probably going to struggle.”

Jordan concluded: “It’s genuinely not what we do, but there’s a lot of stuff I’d have to change, and I think you’re always going to be on the bad book because people assume that you’ll be good, then when you’re not very good you look even worse!”

Jordan is currently working with Tesco as part of its Golden Grants.

Shoppers have a golden hour to win a share of half a million pounds for their local school or a community group that supports children this Saturday (September 23).

The company’s Stronger Starts campaign are offering shoppers in 100 Tesco stores a lucky dip to find a gold version of Tesco’s famous blue voting token between 12 noon and 1.00pm.

Customers who find a gold token will be able to choose which local school or community project will receive a £5,000 Golden Grant to spend on equipment or healthy food to help give children a stronger start in life.

Jordan told “In the world we’re in of entertainment, you have the opportunity to work on like campaigns and different things.

“It’s nice to be a part of one, you are genuinely making a bit of a difference. Everyone’s really nice and everyone’s doing it for the right reasons. 

“Everyone is struggling at the moment and unfortunately, kids don’t really have much choice in being in that situation. Something like Stronger Starts gives them that chance to literally have that – a stronger start.”
