LEE Ryan has admitted his little girl is more excited about Joe Sugg being on Strictly Come Dancing than him. The Blue singer has two children but says his 11-year-old daughter Bluebell is more interested in YouTube star Joe taking to the dancefloor than her famous father. Speaking to The Sun Online ahead of tonight's launch show, which will see him meet his female professional dancer, he said: "My little girl’s over the moon that Joe Sugg is in it, she couldn’t give a s*** about me!" While Bluebell is excited for the show, Lee, 35, admits he was "quite apprehensive" about signing up for the show. He explained: "I think not because of the actual show, but because of the media attention around the show, and the whole machine that it is. "I love my life, I don’t go to the opening of an envelope, I don’t go to a lot of celebrity events, I’d rather be with my kids, I’m either at work or with my kids.

SHIRLEY Ballas has given her support to introducing same sex couples on Strictly Come Dancing, labelling the idea “marvellous”. The head judge, 57, endorsed American show Dancing with the Stars’ move to introduce transgender couples while speaking at the LGBT awards in London on Friday. Cher’s son Chaz Bono, 49, who was born female, performed with a woman on the US telly show in 2011. She said: “We had some in the United States — we had some transgender couples, Cher’s son did it. “It was marvellous. If they were to do that I would embrace it.
