Fabrice Muamba wowed audience members and judges during his salsa bit during the Strictly Christmas special and hinted that he might continue his dancing exploits to a full series.

The ex-Bolton player said: “It all depends on what else is going on. I am very busy and we will just have to see. Two weeks ago, I couldn’t perform ­ballroom dancing but now I can. I’ve really enjoyed doing the Strictly Christmas special. It was a lot of fun.

“I want to use what happened to me and turn it into something positive. You have to get up and go in life. Stopping football is not the end of the world.”

Based on the results, we must respect Muamba’s moves on the dance floor. A true inspiration to say the least.
