Strictly Come Dancing 2012: Louis Smith to ditch gymnastics for showbiz career?

Louis Smith

Strictly Come Dancing champion Louis Smith may take time out from gymnastics in a bid to pursue a career in showbusiness.

The sportsman, who competed in the London 2012 Olympics, took time out from athletics to compete in BBC dance contest Strictly last year and finished in first place.

And now it seems Louis might be taking a break if his Olympic team-mate Kristin Thomas is to be believed.

Despite Louis finishing on Strictly Come Dancing towards the end of last year, he is still involved with the show as he is currently performing with the programme’s live tour until mid-February.


Kristin told The Independent: “If I was to have three or four months off it would take me a year to get back to the standard required of me to compete at the highest level.

“I’m sure if he does make a comeback it will be 2014 before we see him.”
