Jake Wood sadly left Strictly Come Dancing last weekend, just seven days short of the finals, after landing himself in the bottom two alongside reality star Mark Wright.

But the 42-year-old actor was met by a double blow when he lost a bet to fellow EastEnders star, Danny Dyer.

He admitted: "Me and Danny have a little bet going on so I owe him £500.

"But that is all I will say on that."

Jake now thinks that the real-life Mick Carter should have a go on the show - and we imagine plenty of female viewers will agree with him!

He said: "If Danny fancies doing it I'm sure they'd have him - I'd like to see his Rumba."

Based on the advice he gave Jake, we imagine his version of the popular dance would be 'rolling'.

Meanwhile Jake, who plays Max Branning in the popular BBC One soap, has said that he would recommend the Strictly experience to any and every celebrity.

He said: "I'd recommend it to anyone who's thinking about it.

"Just throw yourself in and give it a hundred percent and see how far you can go.

"You're going to get world class dance tuition and I don't think you can buy that kind of experience."
