Lorraine Kelly turned down Strictly Come Dancing offer

Lorraine Kelly once rejected an impressive offer to compete on 'Strictly Come Dancing.'

The 56-year-old presenter has admitted bosses were keen to snap her up for the BBC One Ballroom and Latin show a few years ago but she turned down the chance because she thinks she would make a mockery out of herself.

Speaking exclusively to BANG Showbiz, she said: "I was asked to do 'Strictly Come Dancing', years ago, and I turned it down. I think it's a fantastic show and I just said to them, 'I love to watch but not in a million years.'

"You know how you always get someone that goes on who's always the comedy, I think it was Jeremy Vine or Russell Brand, and I wouldn't even be comedy, I'd just be really bad."

And it's not just the glitzy dancing programme Lorraine has ruled out as she's adamant she would never sign up to any reality TV show, despite the fact she loves to watch them.

She explained: "To be honest, I've got no desire to go on any reality TV show because I wouldn't want to put myself through them. I mean, I love 'I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here!', I love the presenters Ant and Dec but I would never, ever, want to be a part of it. I just couldn't. I just like to watch."
