Frank Bruno has the moves like Jagger for Strictly Come Dancing

Frank Bruno says he has dance moves as good as Sir Mick Jagger and Michael Jackson which could help him win "Strictly Come Dancing".

The former WBC Heavyweight Champion of the World has been approached about appearing on the BBC ballroom show a few times and although he is yet to swap the boxing ring for the ballroom he is sure his "exclusive moves" would impress the judges Craig Revel Horwood, Bruno Tonioli, Darcey Bussell and Shirley Ballas.

Likening his dance skills to the two pop legends, Frank exclusively told BANG Showbiz: "I've never been tempted by "Strictly", not yet anyway - I'm not that kinky for "Strictly! I've got no intention at the moment of going on that show but I'd never say never. I've got the moves for "Strictly", I've got more moves than Mick Jagger and Michael Jackson, but they're very exclusive moves. Sometimes I cut a bit of cloth now and then, but they're very exclusive."

Frank, 56, has so far turned down all of the BBC's offers to go on the Saturday night show but he is a fan of the dance spectacular and has been watching most weeks to see who will take home the 2017 glitterball trophy with Gemma Atkinson, Joe McFadden and Debbie McGee among the favourites to win.

He said: "I've been asked a few times but I've never had the time to do it, I wouldn't mind doing it ... I watch "Strictly", it's good."

Frank is currently busy working with Heineken on their Brewing Good Cheer campaign which aims to reduce social isolation over the Christmas period, which will see an estimated nine million people spending a large proportion of the festive holiday alone.

This campaign will see 50 pubs across the country put on a free Christmas lunch for hundreds of socially isolated people and Frank visited The White Horse pub in Brixton, South London, near his former childhood home and old gym to see how the establishment is helping vulnerable people this December, spending time chatting with locals.

Frank was joined by members of Opening Doors, a support network for elderly people in the LGBT community, and people from Sound Minds, a charity that uses art, music and film to help people deal with depression or other mental illnesses.

The beloved pugilist - who documented his own battle with mental health and struggle against loneliness in his memoirs "Let Me Be Frank" - said of his visit:: "Without the strong support and safety net of my friends and supporters I wouldn't be standing in front of you today. Their friendship and company not only helped during dark times in my life but also prevented me from being alone and dwindling even further down that road. Millions of others will not only agree with me but will also identify with my situation so I am glad Heineken is taking positive steps to address this issue. I completely identify with the ethos of Brewing Good Cheer. Pubs are a totally unique British institution, and bring people from all walks of life together unlike anywhere else in the world. I think pubs provide a great setting to connect lonely and isolated people and to bring some much needed Christmas cheer."
