Cable to star in Strictly special
Business Secretary Vince Cable has confirmed he's going to star in a Christmas edition of Strictly Come Dancing.
Dr Cable, who is set to partner ballroom professional Erin Boag, informed delegates at the Association of Colleges' annual conference in Birmingham he was already practising for the hit show.
Quizzed about reports that he was set to perform on the programme, he said: "I have had a couple of practice sessions with Erin, who is absolutely gorgeous and a great teacher. I am looking forward to it."
Dr Cable is an avid fan of ballroom dancing and has previously talked of his desire to appear on the show.
