City Mayor Brian White would like to make something perfectly clear to the population of Milton Keynes: he is NOT a sex bomb.
The Tom Jones hit has been chosen by the organisers of Strictly MK as the “perfect” dance track for Brian’s charity dance performance.
“I think they are being ironic,” said Brian this week. “I must be the least likely sex bomb in the world!”
He admits he is “absolutely terrified” at the prospect of dancing in front of 1,400 people on October 26 with his celebrity partner Davina Lawrence.
“I’m dreading it,” he said. “I have two left feet and learning to dance has probably been the hardest thing I’ve ever done. My wife Lena thinks Davina is a miracle worker for getting me to put even two steps together!”
The day after Brian’s sex bomb performance he will demonstrate another chain-twirling dance for schoolchildren at the Strictly MK Junior event. This time the music is from the Lazy Town children’s TV show and the song is I’m the Mayor.
He said: “I am NEVER going to live this down in the council chamber. But the embarrassment will be worth it because the show will raise so much money for Willen Hospice and Macmillan cancer care.
