Richard Hammond to do Strictly Come Dancing?

Share article:

ichard Hammond has hinted he's keen to do "Strictly Come Dancing".

The "Grand Tour" presenter has sparked rumours he's in talks with producers about taking part in the ballroom and latin competition next year after he was spotted sitting in the audience for the musical-themed routines on Saturday (02.12.17).

A source told the Daily Star newspaper: "A lot of celebrities who come to see the show and say they are fans get a private chat with producers and end up in sequins and glitter the following year."

And if he does agree to do next year's series, it will come just over 12 months since he was left temporarily wheelchair bound after he careered off a hilltop in Switzerland while travelling at 120mph.

The 47-year-old petrol head was left with a fractured knee in June when his £2 million supercar tumbled down a slope in the Swiss Alps before bursting into flames, leaving him badly shaken.

He said recently: "My family haven't seen the latest crash. I don't think they ever will. Mindy won't want to watch it, because she will just be really, really cross."

Richard - who is father to daughters Isabella, 16, and Willow, 13 - says his wife Mindy has told him he's only got one more strike and he feels it would be irresponsible to take part in any more races.

He explained: "I don't think it would be well-received if I do it again ...

"Mindy is very patient and knows my primary job is as a husband and father to our daughters, and she knows that's the most important thing in my life and I'm not going to mess that up and risk it.

"She also knows I am not just there to support my daughters materially, but for them to realise, "Wow, I can do something exciting with my life." I want them to think, "If that little idiot can travel the world on all his adventures, I can realise my dreams." Your job as a father or a mother is not just to change nappies - your job is to inspire them. You're their first exposure to adult life, so if they see you bored and frustrated and unfulfilled, that's not so good."
