Hide - Not a Quitter!

2 June, 2006

Hide - Not a Quitter!

Contrary to reports on a commercial radio station today, Rodney Hide has not withdrawn from popular TV ONE show Dancing with the Stars.

TVNZ said today it had confirmed with Mr Hide that he had no intention of leaving the programme early. Mr. Hide told TVNZ he had been practising all week and was hoping to make a more favourable impression on the judges in Sunday's show.

"I'm loving the show and have been working hard on my Samba," Mr. Hide said. "There is no way I would withdraw from the show. I've been called many things but never a quitter."

Viewers can check out Rodney Hide's Samba skills for themselves this Sunday at 8.30pm on TV ONE.
