BALLROOM dancing silver medal holder and former England athlete Robin Green says the show is a load of rubbish.

“I’ve seen it a few times by accident and watched Mark Ramprakash, who could dance, but there is too much hype and having Bruce Forsyth doesn’t help.

“It’s clean family entertainment but then so is a jigsaw puzzle and that is more stimulating.”

Robin, from a village just north of Andover, earned his silver medal at university.
