Calvin Harris has described Strictly Come Dancing as an "embarrassment", saying he would never consider taking part in the show.

The Scottish DJ shared his views on the popular dancing show during an interview with KISS Breakfast's Melvin Odoom, who will take part in the coming series of Strictly.

Harris said the competition "is an embarrassment that I could not put myself through".

The This Is What You Came For hitmaker is to appear on The X Factor soon, joining judge Nicole Scherzinger in the judge's houses stage of the singing competition.

In 2009 Harris was banned from The X Factor after jumping on stage with a pineapple during a live performance by Jedward.

"I wasn't proud of it. But I was, you know, deeply satisfied with myself," Harris recalled.
