Mel Giedroyc ruled out Strictly in case she spoiled show

By Julia Hunt

Presenter Mel Giedroyc said she turned down an offer to do Strictly Come Dancing because being on the show herself would have ruined it for her.

The former Great British Bake Off co-host - a huge fan of the BBC show - also suggested that now is not the right time for her to try her luck on the dancefloor.

Giedroyc (48) told the Radio Times: "I was asked and I said no.

"l love watching it so much I almost didn't want to spoil the pleasure by being on it."

She added: "And it's tricky for a woman moving into middle age.

"You're not the comedy old bag yet, which would be the joy of going on Strictly."
