Donovan dismisses Barlow rivalry

Jason Donovan and Gary Barlow have laughed off the idea they are "Saturday night rivals".

Australian actor and singer Jason is about to take to the dancefloor on BBC One's Strictly Come Dancing while Take That's Gary has already made his debut as a judge on ITV1's The X Factor.

Jason said: "Gary and I have had a laugh about us being Saturday night rivals.

"I think Gary's position is far more steady than mine."

The star said he would not be surprised if the Rule The World singer-songwriter stepped out on Strictly one day.

He said: "Secretly I think Gary fancies himself in some sequins, a spray tan and doing the cha cha cha."

Another former Ramsay Street regular, Holly Valance, said there would not be any extra competition between her and Jason, who she said was "just adorable and nothing but a sweetheart".

But she said she might have to do something to stop fellow contestant Lulu doing too well.

She joked: "I'm thinking about tripping Lulu... she's too good."
