Emma Willis says she would do Strictly Come Dancing… but not I’m A Celeb

Emma Willis has revealed her hopes to compete on Strictly Come Dancing, but insisted there is no chance she would go on I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here.

The Voice host, 44, admitted that she will definitely not follow in the footsteps of her close pal and 2020 champion Giovanna Fletcher and appear on I’m A Celebrity.

But she explained that instead, as long as was given the time off, she would happily appear on Strictly, as dancing is her ‘thing’ whereas ‘bugs’ gross her out.

She told The Mirror: ‘I would do Strictly, that’s the only one for me of that type of thing, bugs are not.

‘I could not do I’m A Celebrity, I take my hat off to anybody that goes there. 

‘What it would take for me to do Strictly would be having that time off during the end of the year, that’s it.’

Emma went on to say that she imagines competing on the BBC dance contest would be a ‘nice little adventure’ – unlike taking part in the dreaded Bushtucker trials.

Her friend Giovanna, 35, soared to success on this year’s series of I’m A Celebrity after being crowned the first ever Queen of the Castle.

Emma, who is married to Busted’s Matt Willis, recently made headlines after sharing a picture of her son Ace wearing a pink top and sporting long blond hair.

In October, she had hailed her son as her biggest style inspiration as she shared a snap of him wearing his pink crop top, ripped jeans, and pink Nike trainers.

And she was quickly flooded with praise from fans for raising her son as ‘open-minded’, while others described her nine-year-old son as an ‘inspiration’.

Later speaking on Good Morning Britain, Emma said she was ‘overwhelmed’ by the positive reaction, sweetly saying: ‘He’s just my son in a pink top.’

She continued: ‘For me that’s normality. He loves colour, he’s always had long hair, he’s a free and able-minded boy. 

‘He’s like, “why do I have to dress in green and blue and grey, when I love red and pink and purple?” He’s always been that way.’

She continued: ‘We’re trying to raise him as an open-minded, inclusive individual. There were some negative bits, but that’s where the block button is great!’

Emma and her husband Matt, 37, are very private with their family life and keep the faces of their kids Isabelle, 11, Ace, and Trixie, four, hidden in social media posts.

And in the image of Ace that she shared, his face was masked by a mass of long blond hair, as the Big Brother host gushed over his fashion choices.

She captioned the image: ‘My little style icon ❤️ (Ace, not Matt )’, referencing the fact her husband of 12 years was stood in the background of the photo. 

Fans praised the presenter for posting the photo, with one saying: ‘Just shows how far we have to go in breaking down gender stereotypes. 

‘Pink is simply a colour. Hair grows. Let kids (or adults) wear whatever they want!’

Another added: ‘So what if this boy has beautiful long blond hair and wears a pink T-shirt ! Jesus! I bet he smiles a million more time’s a day then you miserable judgey ADULTS commenting on this child! #getalife.’

A third penned: ‘Your son is an inspiration. Coming from a mummy of a son who loves pink, Rainbows and his Elsa dress. He is following his own story and not bound by stupid society stereotypes. ❤️❤️❤️.’

A few of Emma’s pals also commented on the sweet snap of Ace, including pal Emma Bunton, who wrote: ‘Just gorgeous! We [heart] Ace! X’ 

While Fearne Cotton said: ‘I miss Ace! When is he making me that dress?’

AJ Odudu penned: ‘The level of style we can only aspire to!’  

Emma tied the knot with her longtime partner Matt in 2008 and the smitten couple renewed their vows 10 years later in 2018.

The renewal ceremony was officiated by Stephen Mulhern, after he got specially ordained for the day, while guests were invited to wear their wedding dresses.
