"I'm actually very nice and very sweet and people will see that when they see me watching the TV," he explained, adding:  Obviously, I'm very opinionated. [...] When it's about dance, I'm super critical and I should be because I've got to be there to wave the dance flag for the world."

Meanwhile, another regular on Celebrity Gogglebox, Lorraine Kelly, opened up about what it's really like filming for the show.

Fellow Strictly star Oti also features on the programme

Writing in exclusive diary for HELLO!, the legendary broadcaster said: "It's such good fun and you really do forget you are making a TV show, because it is all about sitting on your own sofa in your 'comfies' with some popcorn and a cheeky glass of rose wine.

"There are a couple of remote cameras, but you don't even notice them after five minutes. All the programme makers are in their technical truck so you forget they are recording everything."
