After an appearance on the Christmas special of Strictly Come Dancing, Jay Blades has discussed if he would ever consider taking to the dance floor again. Admitting that it would be ‘hard to do the full series’ due to his schedule, he hasn’t discredited the idea.

After his fan-pleasing Only Fools and Horses jive dance on Strictly in December, fans have repeatedly asked if he will be on the show again.

The Repair Shop specialist danced with Luba Mushtuk and scored an impressive 34.

While talking to Zoe Ball on her radio show, he shared that he would be open to it if he had time. 

Zoe started with: “Well done on the Christmas special of Strictly Come Dancing. How much fun did you have?

“Maisie Smith did a Christmas Special, and she got to the final Jay.”

With his documentary broadcasting tonight and his continued love of items that need repairing and upcycling, he lets listeners know just how booked up he is.

“I tell you what, it would be nice, but the only thing is, there’s so much other filming that I’m looking to do so…,” Jay replied.

“The Repair Shop is kind of like full-on. We film like six days a week, so it’d be hard to fit it in. 

Zoe quickly touched on the fact the 51-year-old furniture restorer didn’t actually say no to attempting to win the Glitterball Trophy.

“Okay, all right, but he’s not saying no; that wasn’t a no!” Zoe referenced.

Jay confirmed: “I’m not saying no, yeah.”

At the time, fans took to social media to show their support for his dancing and said “how nice” he came across and how he should ‘live his best life’ on the floor.  

Jay didn’t quite score high enough while on the show with the Glitterball Trophy going to singer-songwriter Anne-Marie and her dance partner Graziano Di Prima.

The TV personality also recently opened up about the racism he received as a child by the police. 

He said: “You had to learn how to fight, especially if you got picked up by the police – stopped and searched, hit a couple of times with a truncheon.” 

Jay Blades: Learning to Read at 51 airs on January 26 at 9 pm on BBC One. The Repair Shop airs Wednesday on BBC One at 8 pm.
