Louis Smith has made a bold and outrageous claim this week, telling more! magazine that he's got no plans to whip his top off when he competes on Strictly Come Dancing 2012. You know, that show that puts the men in silky shirts open to their waistline, possibly made of velcro to enable easy ripping-off.
"Probably not," said the Smithster when asked if he'd go topless.
"A lot of the dancers, especially the girls, have better stomachs than me. They're more tanned too."
Er, Louis, nobody's comparing stomachs or tans on this show (it ain't TOWIE), if anything a whipping-off will probably help you get more points for your flamenco...
We give Louis approx 3 weeks before we at least see a sizeable amount of man-cleavage.
Will you be tuning in?
