Of being one of the favourites to win, he continued: "I try not to think about it to be honest, the nerves are there anyway and you're anxious about going out and doing something that's out of your comfort zone anyway so there's a lot to think about…
"It sounds stupid but I live like a dog, I live in the moment so I live in what is happening now and what I need to do now and then once it's done it's in the pocket. »

Kate Garraway isn't sure about doing more reality TV. The 'Daybreak' presenter - who was announced as one of the new presenters on Smooth Radio yesterday (24.02.14) - is ruling out appearances on ITV diving show 'Splash!' and Channel 4's Winter Olympics-themed 'The Jump' following her stint on 'Strictly Come Dancing' in 2007.

Broadcaster reported to be courting BBC1 Breakfast presenter following a review that could result in Daybreak being axed
ITV has held talks with BBC presenter Susanna Reid in a bid to revive its fortunes in the TV breakfast wars.
The BBC1 Breakfast presenter's stock has risen since her turn on Strictly Come Dancing in the autumn and ITV is understood to want Reid to front a revamped rival early morning show.
Reid is reported to have been offered £1m by ITV to change channels, but sources said the estimates were excessive. However, she is sure to earn far more than the £250,000 she is currently believed to be paid at the BBC is she moves to ITV.

Celebrities are not known for their revolutionary spirit, what with barricades being everso hard to scale when one is accessorised with advertising contracts and publicity commitments, but I am particularly excited about the upcoming red carpet film awards, because I sense a revolution is imminent. Do you hear the people sing? Singing a song of angry men! It is the music of a people who will not be patronised by entertainment journalists again!
The Baftas are a week-and-a-half away and the Oscars – the royale with cheese of film awards – take place in less than a month. At the rate the revolution is currently building, I'll be disappointed if there isn't full-on bloodshed on the red carpet, with Daybreak presenters lying slain across Los Angeles, their last words a pitiful bleat of "so who are you wearing? »

The evicted housemate recently told the Daily Star that she had been driven to self-harming during her time on the Channel 5 reality show, but she has now clarified her story.
"In my depression a couple of years ago when I was at my lowest ebb, I did self-harm and I used to do that by biting my hand - ridiculous I know - but you know when you're that low," she told ITV's Daybreak.
"So what I tend to do now when I get stressed is I rub my hand until the skin gets raw."
She added: "As if I would be still in there... As if they [Big Brother] would let me, as if my family would let me and as if I would want to be in there. So you're safe, »
Blair explained: "I said to Sam, 'When you go out, can I come down and come out with you?' So I'm now out with them."
"Lee is a young man [who thinks], 'There's a lovely girl, ooh there's another lovely girl'," he commented. "I read things this morning that I can't believe happened. If I was there, it wouldn't have happened."
Blair added that he is backing Ollie Locke to win the show. »

Appearing on ITV's Daybreak today (January 10), Shaw, who was joined by skating partner Matt Evers, revealed that she has been struggling without having her father to support her while she competes on the ice dancing show.
"It's been a really tough decision," said Shaw. "It's going to be quite hard for me, because he was there every single week and he loved the show.
"I know how much he really was so proud of me and was so behind me."
Shaw, who won the reality show in 2008, continued: "It is going to be tough but he's looking down on me. Everything's really positive with it and I just think, 'Come on, let's do it for Vinny!'"
The singer and actress also spoke about her 9-year-old son »
