Ore Oduba has revealed he will be commuting to spend his daughter Genie's first Christmas with her.
The 36 year old is currently starring as Brad Majors in a nationwide tour of The Rocky Horror Show, meaning he is spending a lot of time away from his family.
He and wife Portia welcomed their second child – daughter Genie – in October, meaning he will have to travel to spend the festive season with her.
Speaking exclusively to OK! as he helps launch Anchor's Move into Christmas campaign, the former Strictly Come Dancing star said: "I'm so looking forward to Genie's first Christmas.
"I'm currently on tour with Rocky Horror but we're in Guilford the week of Christmas, which isn't too far from Kent where we're spending Christmas Day with my in-laws, so I can commute.
"If I’d been the other side of the country I'd not have been able to spend Christmas there."
He continued: "The only thing we’ve not been able to do this time of year is our Christmas card.
"Last year we did family Christmas cards for the first time so we have to get our bums in gear and take a nice picture, it’s lovely to share that."
Ore also discussed the Move into Christmas campaign, which encourages the elderly and their families to join in with a choreographed routine to highlight he power of music and dance.

The former Strictly Come Dancing winner said: "Dance is something that I love that I didn’t know I needed in my life.
"Ever since doing Strictly, I’ve become a huge ambassador for dance, so any campaign that champions that, I am well behind!
"With the Anchor campaign, it's trying the remind the wider public that the older generation are a huge part of our community and also an amazing thing like dance is a wonderful way for them to engage.
"We will all be dancing at some point, some more ill-advised than others, at Christmas and through this campaign we've choreographed a little routine that is accessible whatever ability you have.
"Hopefully we’ll have families getting together and joining in, especially after last year when we couldn’t have it as we wanted to."
