Speaking to his 27,000 followers from his car, he said: "Hey, Martin here, I need your help. I’m just sitting outside a house filming in Coventry and you know what? I’m a bit cheesed off.

"It’s been a really rough few weeks and I’ve just heard that Strictly, which is something that I’d absolutely love to do, won’t even have a phone call with me to see if I might be somebody who might be suitable for Strictly.

"And it is something that I would love to do, and not even offering me the chance to have a quick conversation and point out the fact that I haven’t got many years left in me,” he continued.

Martin urged his followers for help

"My body is falling apart, the guarantee is falling apart on various bits and pieces. And I am running out of chances to do something that I would love to do, and my daughter would love me to do, and I think I would be really fun at."

Pleading with his fans, Martin suggested: "So could we start some kind of campaign? This is probably totally wrong and I shouldn’t be asking, but can we get a ground swell, can anyone be bothered to actually try and do something?

"Let’s do a hashtag #martin4strictly and see if we can just at least get me somewhere down the line to have a chance to do this, because loads of people seem to think they’d quite enjoy me on it, and I would certainly love to give it a chance."

Alluding that he has some dance experience, Martin added: "I’ve got some ghosts to do with dancing which I’ve got to try and exorcise, all will be revealed!

"But yeah, sorry to ask and all that, but I’m a bit hacked off really! So whatever you can do to help and if you happen to be from Strictly, give me a chance just to at least tell you what I’d like to do, okay? That would be really great, seriously, thanks for any help you can give me!"
