Joe McFadden still waiting for job offers

Share article:

Joe McFadden is still unemployed since winning "Strictly Come Dancing".

The 42-year-old actor's character in BBC medical drama "Holby City" was killed off before Christmas and the star was hoping after the holiday break the offers would start to pour in.

Joe is quoted by The Sun Online as saying: "There haven't been any job offers.

"There have been some discussions but there is nothing solid at all so I really don't know what I'm going to do.

"I know there was a lot of talk about what might happen but because of everyone being off over Christmas and New Year, nothing has come about."

The former "Holby" star and his professional partner Katya Jones beat celebrity rivals Debbie McGee, Alexandra Burke and Gemma Atkinson to bag the Glitterball Trophy in the grand final of the dance contest in December, watched by 13 million viewers.

During his time on the show, Joe quit his role in the hospital drama as surgeon Raf di Lucca, who he had played since 2014. Fans were left shocked when Raf was dramatically shot dead by Fredrik Johanssen (Billy Postlethwaite).

After his success on the dancefloor, Joe is hoping to land a role in a West End musical.

He said: "I think that now people have seen me dance it would be a shame not to go ahead and do that again.

"Having just come off the biggest show on television, I want to make the right decision.

"And having done four years on Holby I don't necessarily want a long-term thing.

"But as an actor you never know where your next job will come along so I'll just have to see."

In the meantime, the Scottish actor is going to be busy with the "Strictly Live Tour", performing with Katya to audiences around the UK.

Joe said: "I'm really looking forward to seeing everybody and dancing again. The Glasgow shows are the ones I'm looking forward to most, getting out in front of my hometown crowd."
