Comedian Russell Howard has revealed that he turned down Strictly Come Dancing 2012.
Speaking to the Daily Star today, Russell revealed that his mum was "gutted" to hear he had turned down the opportunity to appear on the dancing series.
"My mum was gutted, but there's just no chance I was going to do it," he told the newspaper.
He joked: "I was flattered they asked, but I really, really can't dance. I'm like a newborn pony."
He added: "I'll stick to the comedy."
