Walliams up for a turn on Strictly

David Walliams and Miranda Hart were put through their paces with a few dance lessons for their forthcoming Christmas comedy

David Walliams has revealed he would be up for a stint on Strictly Come Dancing after he and Miranda Hart were put through their paces with a few dance lessons for their forthcoming Christmas comedy.

The pair learnt the basics to film a scene for BBC One family film Gangsta Granny, based on David's best-selling children's book.

And he told Radio Times he would entertain the idea of appearing on the hit programme "one day".

David, who is on the judging panel for ITV contest Britain's Got Talent, said: "I think it's the one show that would be fun to do. You don't have to eat kangaroo testicles at any point - unless, of course, you want to.

" And there's no humiliation involved. You c an be rubbish at it but the public can still like you and find you entertaining. So maybe one day."

In Gangsta Granny he and Miranda play a couple who are obsessed with Strictly, down to their permanent spray tans, and had lessons to prime them for their roles.

"We got a bit carried away, and started asking the producer who was better. Really annoyingly, she said Miranda."

:: The interview is in the new edition of Radio Times, on sale now.

If you act like you don't care about the outcome of a situation, they won't be paralysed with uncertainty. You have a tendency to make people nervous.More
