Joe McFadden needs 'paling down' after Strictly Come Dancing

Joe McFadden needs "paling down" after every weekend on "Strictly Come Dancing".

The 41-year-old actor has revealed he is forced to wash and scrub his skin to get rid of his "Caribbean" colour after a night of dancing on the ITV competition in order to film scenes for his character Raf di Lucca in "Holby City" during the week.

He said: "I actually had to scrub it off for filming yesterday. He [his character] hasn't been to the Caribbean. So yes, there was lots of paling down. Perhaps I should have checked that before doing it. But they didn't mind, they just paled me down."

Joe is hoping to ramp up rehearsals with his professional partner Katya Jones if "Holby City" bosses "lighten" his load on the popular medical drama.

He added to the Radio Times magazine: "They've assured me that they are going to lighten it up for me. Whether that happens or not - I think they've said that before to people and it hasn't worked out!"

Joe and Katya will make their dance floor debut on Saturday (23.09.17) and the Scottish hunk is excited to put his newly learned skills into practice.

However, he has admitted that, despite his experience on set, performing in front of millions of people live on TV and in the studio is "daunting" but he would never have turned the opportunity down.

He said: "I want to do it because I want to learn how to dance really.

"The fact that I'm doing it in front of so many people is slightly daunting, but it's part and parcel - so I couldn't feasibly say no. I think it's something I would regret for the rest of my life if I did."
