He said: “After that I was like I’ll just take any work that I can take and then they went to film the trailer for the show that year. 

“The idea for the trailer was that all these Strictly stars would be dancing with an invisible partner.

“That invisible partner was me, I just wanted a job that’s me in the morph suit carrying all the pros about.”

When it came to impressing producers, it was a case of third time lucky for the Strictly.

“And about two, three days later is when I got the call to say we can have you on the show,” he added.

Strictly Come Dancing returns to BBC One on September 21.
