Judy Murray told Andy Strictly fib

Judy Murray has apparently confessed she lied to son Andy about her Strictly Come Dancing appearance.

Rumours have been circulating for months that the tennis star's mum - who is a huge fan of the BBC show - would be taking part this year.

But according to The Sun, Judy, 54, has revealed she lied to Andy, 27, when he asked her if it was true she would be taking to the floor.

And Andy apparently replied: "Thank God, you'd be absolutely terrible."

Andy's girlfriend Kim Sears, 26, previously turned down a chance to compete on Strictly.

Meanwhile, Smooth FM DJ Andrew Castle - a former Strictly contestant and friend of the family - said Andy will be cheering his mum on, even if he does find it a bit embarrassing.

Andrew added: "He might have to watch trough his fingers - it's the plight of all children, isn't it? To be humiliated by their parents now and then.

"Although I remember Judy dancing years ago at tennis balls. She had some moves."
