Larry Lamb: Being serious is like entering an alien world you already know

Larry Lamb has said that competing on the Christmas special when dancing seriously is “like a stranger walking into a world you already know”.

The 75-year-old actor, who plays Mick Shipman on the hit sitcom Gavin And Stacey, will team up with professional dancer Nadiya Bychkova as six celebrities battle it out in a special festival of the show.

When asked how he feels, he said: “Someone told me that the Christmas Dance Special seriously always blows up characters on TV and I said ‘yes, but it didn’t blow Gavin and Stacey’s Christmas Special did it?’ and they said ‘no, you’re right, it didn’t blow it up at all’.

Lamb also starred in EastEnders, leaving Walford unexpectedly on Christmas Day 2009 when his character Archie Mitchell was murdered by a mysterious assassin who hit him in the head with a bust. of Queen Victoria.

He added: “(Strictly’s) liked you when you first joined EastEnders and you find yourself at The Queen Vic, you realize you’re in a place you’ve loved for years and then suddenly it’s reality, and you have to watch it all and think ‘wow!’ it’s like being a stranger entering a world you already know.”

Lamb also said he was “really lucky” to work with Bychkova because he couldn’t dance at all.

He added: “I’m not even an amateur dancer, so it’s ridiculous to be judged by top professional dancers.

“If I do it right, I will be very excited and I will be delighted that I can do it.”

Bychkova said: “It was fun to see everything come together and I could see the smile on his face.”
