Lance cancels his Dancing With The Stars appearance in the light of confession

He's asked to come on the show every year

Lance Armstrong confession

There's a good chance he'll never cycle competitively again, and now, for the time being, Lance is out of competitive dancing.

In the wake of his dramatic confession to doping on the Oprah Winfrey show, he's confirmed that he's dropping out of his spot on Dancing With The Stars.

According to Entertainment Weekly, he's offered a slot every single year, so perhaps once he's polished up his halo a bit he'll be back on screens, but for now he won't be following in Victoria Pendleton's footsteps on the dancefloor.

Next year, eh?

And in other non-news Lance goes for a wee, (According to source close to the LA camp he asks to do this at least once day).

He is going to need a few nifty steps in the coming years though. I too am sick of 'his' news but, if he goes under oath to USADA and the UCI Independent Committee, that will be a bit more worthy than the OWN nonsense. Until then can we leave the guy to rot?

Ah, but that was then

He is asked to come on the show every year, I think the show's producers have got the measure of the man Wink Wink

Laughing Can you imagine him taking part, getting really competitive, then being busted for doping?! That would be truly, truly funny.

In theory, there is no difference between theory and practice, but in practice...
