EXCLUSIVE! Team GB and Strictly sexpot Louis Smith becomes heatworld photographer for the day!
As if winning an Olympic medal wasn’t enough, Team GB star Louis Smith has skills as a photographer!
We asked Louis if he’d take some photos for us during Monday’s Team GB Olympic Parade through London, and the 23-year-old gymnast has perfectly captured all the excitement from the day.
Just look at the thousands of people who lined the streets waiting to congratulate the Olympic team (and get close to Louis).
Come back Olympics, we miss you!
Louis and Strictly
This winter Louis will swap the pommel horse for the cha cha cha as a contestant on Strictly Come Dancing, and the Olympic star reckons that taking part on the show will give him the same buzz as The 2012 Games.
“It’s a very prestigious show, it’s definitely one of the best shows on TV at the moment, and I think it?s an honour as well as being great fun to be part of the show,” he told TellyMix.co.uk about appearing on Strictly.
“Coming off the back of the Olympics and having been on such a high, I think this is one of the only shows that can match that in terms of the adrenalin buzz and being part of something special.”
And despite being a disciplined gymnast, Louis says that he need a professional partner who’ll make him work hard,
“Someone to be very strict and keep me on the straight and narrow! I need someone who’s not shy about putting in the hours in training.
“I don’t think me being a gymnast means I’m going to do amazingly well, I’ll have to learn the routines and you can make mistakes, you can trip. I tried on the Latin dance shoes and nearly rolled my ankle! It’ll be tough but I’d like to think the girls will be fighting over me!”
