Flexing In A Tank Top Couldn't Help Ben Cohen From Being Voted Off Dancing Show
Flexing his biceps in a revealing tank top wasn't enough to save Ben Cohen and keep the hunky LGBT ally in the ballroom on Britain's Strictly Come Dancing.
Former England rugby star Ben Cohen has said playing in a World Cup final was easier than taking part in Strictly Come Dancing. The 35-year-old was booted into touch from the ballroom contest on Sunday night after failing to out-tackle actor Mark Benton in the dance-off. The Sun reports that Ben's tight costumes - and tendency to go completely topless have won him lots of fans. 'Yes, there have been a few proposals - from men and women,' he laughed. He also said a highlight of his time on the show was working with his dance partner Kristina. 'She's been thrown against a wall, elbowed, stood on, punched - but not on purpose - to make me look like I can dance to a song,' he said. The former sportsman, who became a crowd favourite for characterful performances, hailed the audience for their support after his final performance. 'They jumped out of their seats,' he said. 'The crowd erupting was a nice reward for effort.'
Here's Ben's final performance:
