Song & dance Alf

Daily Star Sunday - - FRONT PAGE - With ED GLEAVE and PETER DYKE

AL­FIE Boe wants to swap singing for se­quins this au­tumn.

He’s up for danc­ing on TV even though he reck­ons he would strug­gle.

The clas­si­cal singer said: “I’d like to give it a shot. It’s daunt­ing to think about it be­cause it’s quite a com­mit­ment and it’s also hard work. I’m not a dancer ei­ther. I’ve not had much train­ing. But I’d work hard. I think my dance part­ner would be frus­trated as hell with me all the time. But I would do my best and hope­fully achieve a high stan­dard. “I’d never do any­thing like Big Brother but I’d con­sider Strictly.” See Al­fie this Wed­nes­day at The Clas­si­cal BRITs at the Royal Al­bert Hall. Watch it on ITV on Sun­day or buy tick­ets at clas­sicbrits.co.uk. COURT­NEY Act is ready to bury the hatchet with Ann Wid­de­combe.

The drag per­former plays the Lon­don date of her tour tonight and is up for seeing the ex-Tory MP again for the first time in months. Court­ney, real name Shane Jenek, said: “Ann is more than wel­come to come. When we were in the house I was think­ing ‘she would re­ally en­joy my show’ be­cause she loves per­form­ing in pan­tomimes and there’s a cer­tain camp­ness to that. “But I also won­der if maybe she wouldn’t like it. I do say c*** in the first song and that would get an eye roll from her.”Visit court­ney­act.com.
