Daniel Radcliffe for Strictly Come Dancing 2016?

His ‘rents are game!

If faced with the choice of being a contestant on a reality TV show, Daniel Radcliffe would go for the BBC dancing phenomenon, Strictly Come Dancing, he says.

  • The Gamechangers actor spoke to the Radio Times* recently, who asked him the almighty which-reality-TV-show question, to which he responded:

“I guess Strictly, because at least my mum and dad would be proud."

Because becoming a world famous actor and starring in the most successful film franchise (Harry Potter, obvs) of all time hasn’t made them proud enough? Cut yourself some slack, Dan Radz.

But before we all got excited, Daniel quickly added: “But it’s not an option!”


We’re sure it could become an option…

Dan also spoke about his love of good old British TV, saying:

"The show I miss when I'm away, weirdly, is Come Dine with Me."

Nothing weird about that, it’s a great show.

He added:

"I watch a lot of it. It's all down to the voiceover guy, Dave Lamb. Other versions in different countries just aren't as good."

He does do a cracking job, tbf. All the lols.

Anyway, so we can’t confirm that we will see the Harry Potter star on Strictly anytime soon (we will continue to hope) but we can say, if you’re in need of a Dan Radz fix soon, you can catch his new film The Gamechangers on BBC TWO at 9:30pm, Tuesday September 15.
