Harry Judd may well be best known for his exploits on Strictly Come Dancing at the moment, but the McFly drummer has been speaking about his life away from the ballroom.

The 25-year-old captured the nation with his performances on Strictly this year and now he has discussed other issues in his life, such as the night he spent with Lindsay Lohan.

Judd met the American actress back in 2005 and described their relationship: “At the time I thought, ‘This is awesome.’ But I was really nervous. Lindsay invited me back to her hotel. I left at eight o’clock next morning.”

“I didn’t s**g her but we spent the night and had a fumble. “We did things teenagers do. We went far enough but not the full home run.”

He then revealed about how supportive his parents have been during his life so far, saying: “My parents weren’t keen on me joining McFly.”

“I was 17 and I was about to do my AS levels. My dad really wanted me to finish school and do a degree, but I argued that doing this was the experience I needed.”

“It was weird, because once I’d met the other guys I never had a second of doubt that we were going to make it.”

“My parents were incredible – after a few sessions they just said they’d support me.”

Harry’s thoughts are not too far from Strictly still though as he talked about how much he was struggling the night before the Blackpool Tower final.

He continued: “I forgot some moves. The dress run was pretty disastrous. I almost dropped Aliona. And then in the Argentine tango I tripped her up and we had to miss a whole section. Everyone was reassuring us.”

“The night before the final I was with Izzy in a hotel room and I started to work myself up a bit. I was feeling pretty anxious.”

“Thankfully I passed out and next thing I knew the alarm was going off.”

And the rest, as they say, is history.
