Wonnacott can't name Strictly price

Tim Wonnacott has admitted even he can't put a price on the experience of taking part in Strictly Come Dancing.

The TV auctioneer, who is known for appearing on Bargain Hunt, is part of the line-up for this year's BBC dancing contest and said he felt very lucky to be involved.

He said: "When you get one of those experiences that money can't buy... I'm an auctioneer, I take charity sales and I sell special experiences for charity sometimes, but how do you put a value on this?

"It'll never happen to us again and it's really special."

Tim revealed he wasn't having as much of a problem as many of his co-stars with the Strictly sequin-laden makeover, but that he had been confused by his first spray tan.

He explained: "Funnily enough, the flamboyant outfits are no more flamboyant than I normally wear when I make Bargain Hunt, so there's not a lot of difference there.

"But I had this morning an experience which I'd never had, which is the spray tan. Now I know a lot of girls go out and have this spray tan, but I guess there aren't so many boys and certainly I've never had it before.

"When this girl approached me in a small tent with a spray gun and proceeded to apply this stuff to nearly every crevice and cranny, it was extraordinary."
