Strictly Come Dancing finalist Julian Clary is struggling so hard to fill his dance classes that organisers are having to actually pay people to take part.
And this is despite the fact that the camp comic's salsa classes are free to join, the Daily Mirror reports.
Clary was supposed to have taught 40,000 dancers over the course of dozens of classes but apparently many have had to be cut due to lack of interest.
Things have got so bad that actors Christian Downing and Dominik Sachetti were actually paid to turn up to a class in Swansea earlier this week.
"For all I know, everyone else was being paid to be there too," 28-year-old Christian told the newspaper.
The deal was kept strictly under wraps, however, as organisers presumably didn't want Clary finding out how most people couldn't give a foxtrot about his classes.
