Paralympian Jody Alan Cundy to join Strictly Come Dancing
Jody Cundy has insisted he has no hope of winning Strictly Come Dancing after he attempted his first of many Latin and Ballroom moves last week.
The 44-year-old shared a video of himself trying to master a spin, ahead of taking to the dance floor next month, but almost lost his balance.
Overcoming the slight mishap, however, he remained upright and bowed down in a humorous nod to his fans.
Jody’s attempts were combined with an old video of the judges holding up their 10 paddles for previous constestants, a score he jokingly said he may not achieve.
Many of his Instagram followers remarked on his efforts in the comments section.

In response, Jody admitted that the spin he shared was his third attempt, alongside a crying with laughter emoji.
He added: “Not sure you can score a 0 point on Strictly though!”
Kadeena Cox typed: “Took you 3 attempts to try get that spin right so I’m looking forward to see how you get on with actual steps,” followed by a laughing emoji.
In response, Jody wrote: “And it was still terrible.”

Another fan named SwimmerStu182said he was going to tune into Strictly for the first time, to which the cyclist replied: “I’ll try and make it worth tuning in for.”
Vincyc43 added: “You will be awesome.”
The gold medallist has said the show is “so far away” from what he’s used to, but was “looking forward to the challenge”.
He added to the BBC: “I can’t wait to get stuck in, bring on the glitter and sequins!”
Jody is no stranger to a challenge and has represented Great Britain at seven Paralympics, winning eight gold medals in swimming and cycling events.
He has also competed in multiple World Championships and is the recipient of 23 world titles.
In 2021, he became the first man in Paralympics GB history to win medals at seven different games, and was made a CBE for services to cycling last year.
Jody has lived an active life with the help of a prosthetic leg. He was born with a deformed right foot which was amputated at the age of three.
Those in the running to win the Glitterball trophy are; Amanda Abbington, Angela Rippon, Layton William, Krishnan Guru-Murthy, Eddie Kadi, Angela Scanlon, Zara McDermott, Adam Thomas, Nikita Kanda, Ellie Leach, Jody Cundy CBE, Bobby Brazier, Nigel Harman, Annabel Croft and Les Dennis.
A date for the new BBC series is yet to be announced.
