David Icke To Appear On The BBC’s Strictly Come Dancing

Legendary conspiracy researcher and former goalkeeper David Icke has signed up to appear on this years Strictly Come Dancing. Icke told The Times last night that he is “delighted” to be returning to the BBC after 33 years.

The author, who’s books sell in the millions, has previously turned down offers to appear on Gogglebox, Celebrity Chase and I’m A Celebrity, Get Me Out Of Here.Β 

He did accept an invitation to appear on Celebrity Catchphrase last year, but pulled out when he was told that Roy Walker had retired years ago.

Icke’s dance partner hasn’t yet been revealed, but the former sports presenter who turns 70 later this month, told The Times that she’d have to do most of the leg work as “my knees have gone mate.”

BBC head of entertainment Michael Hunt confirmed that Icke had indeed been signed to appear on Strictly, but said there were strict conditions in the contract:

“David still has a lot of friends at the BBC. We’re delighted that he’s joined the Strictly stable. David has been told that during the live shows, his comments will be limited to his dance performances.

He will not be allowed to discuss Klaus Schwab, Bill Gates, The Queen 0r the Illuminati, unless he gets to the final, but that’s down to the public vote.”

The Richie Allen Show reached out to David’s sons Gareth and Jaymie for comment. Jaymie Icke responded saying:

“We’re devastated mate. First thing this morning, we’re going to change our names by deed poll.”

Here’s hoping David reaches the final.

I hope David has seen it for a chuckle.

And I also have it on good authority that Icke’s dance partner will be none other than Sonia Poulton πŸ˜†


It got me thinking at first, is David good enough at dancing to be on Strictly. Then I twigged.
Very welcome Fake News! πŸ˜‰

Just for a second there, but long enough…

The gammon got us all.


Ohhhhhh you little shit bag Richie! You actually got me there. In fact it took me until i started to read the comments, that i realised this was a prank & that you had well and truly blagged me, hahahahaaaaaa!!! Even then i had to scroll back up to double check the date, lol. You’re a BIG BALDY GAMMON BASTARD, lol. Very good Richie..!
At least you made me smile for the first time this week, because we had to have our beautiful 14 yr old dog, Dylan, AKA Dylibobs, put to sleep at home on monday night.
And with you being the dog lover that you are, and with what you went through with one of your own furbabies last year, will well and truly understand how im feeling. My heart is shattered into a million pieces. Dylan was returned home to us yesterday in his little casket. Jeananne wrote to me in the week and gave me some lovely words of encouragement, and sent me lots of love, which i cant thank her enough for. She told me about her little maltese dog who also died in her arms at home. As did my boy Dylan. Hold on tight Richie to your 2 furbabies. We never know how long we have them for. Lots of love to you and yours. Emma xxxx

Good one, well done. You got me for about 5 minutes πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

Here I am again – laughing at myself that I fell for it !! I keep shaking my head….nobody has ever had me on the 1st and yours was a beaut !!!!!!! mamma mia !! haha


You son of a gun !!!! You had me ! whilst making a cup of tea it sunk in that this is an April fool !!! well done Richie…you had me and I can’t believe it – I was thinking that maybe he is doing for the money as we have to do what we have to do but then I thought surely not ….what can I say you had me !!

I was just about to be flabbergasted then I remembered the date. It would be good to see it though.
