Dancing more dangerous than war reporting

John Sergeant, the former political editor of ITN, says he has suffered more injuries preparing for the next series of the TV show Strictly Come Dancing than he ever did as a war correspondent for the BBC,

“I’ve injured both my left and right foot – more injuries than I ever had when I was a war correspondent for the BBC. It’s a very tough assignment, and I think I am showing a lot of bravery,” [said the 64 yeard old who has reported from Israel ad Vietnam] “Every day I ask myself whether I was right to take the decision [to take part in the show] and I say, ‘Yes, I was’. I might even learn to dance.” link
