Martin Roberts updates fans on Strictly campaign: ‘Not sure what more I can do!’


Martin Roberts, 57, has been on the campaign to secure himself a spot on this year’s Strictly Come Dancing series, but it doesn’t look like he’s been that successful. Admitting to a fan that he’s “not sure what more” he can do, the Homes Under The Hammer star might find the ballroom floor out of reach once again.

Another fan had a humorous suggestion: “Gate crash? Remember your sequins!”

It comes after he recently shared his concerns in an exclusive interview with that he may have “shot himself in the foot” in his bid to appear on the show this year.


Following his social media campaign, where he pleaded with members of the public to raise his standing in the ranks to be picked, he worried BBC bosses may have been taken the wrong way.

Speaking of the campaign, which saw thousands of people and radio stations join forces to try and get him a spot in this year’s highly-anticipated line-up, he explained: “I just got this overwhelming gush of support from people saying, ‘We’d love to see you on that’.

“So, clearly, the decision making process is not influenced by public support.


“I would have thought, at the very least, people would think, ‘He’s going to be a bit of a laugh.'”

Martin went on to make clear that he has to “be careful”, saying: “I’m not desperate to do it, I’m just really, really excited to. And slightly bemused by the inability to even get over the pre-hurdle hurdle.

“I am very disappointed that somebody didn’t just get on the phone and say, ‘Listen, we’ve seen what’s going on. Just to let you know, there’s a bigger picture at play here. We’ve already got somebody from something similar, or we’re trying to get a mix, but you’re on our radar. So we appreciate the enthusiasm and your desire to do the show’.

“Whether or not I ever got to go on Strictly again, it doesn’t matter, that would have meant a lot to me,” he sighed. previously contacted representatives for the BBC about Martin’s hopes to be on Strictly, but received no comment.


Addressing the lack of response, the presenter said: “[Newspapers] went for comment and nobody got a comment and you know, it’s like, that makes me feel just like they’ve taken it the wrong way.

“Literally, I have shot myself in the foot, which means I will never dance on Strictly. At the end of the day, that’s the BBC charter isn’t it? To listen to viewers and to respond, at least to some kind of groundswell of support or otherwise.
