The criminal barrister and TV star announced that he is going to participate in the new season of ‘Strictly come dancing’. “The only thing I knew would make my grandmother more proud than watching my TV courtroom was to see me dressed up in white tie doing the foxtrot,” Rinder said.
“No doubt the judges will be as fair, kind and thoughtful as me (especially the charming Craig Revel Horwood). I shall await their verdicts,” he added. He had an experience of judging, but how will he feel being judged himself? He is the second openly gay contestant in this year’s Strictly line-up, after Will Young revealed he will also take part earlier this month.
