Reality TV hunk 'heartbroken' to learn William Shatner hates him

U.S. reality TV star Nick Viall has invited Star Trek icon William Shatner to join him on Dancing With The Stars, after the actor urged fans to vote him off the show

The Bachelor hunk admits he was "heartbroken" when Shatner launched a campaign to get him booted off the news season of DWTS, which started on Monday (20Mar17).

Shatner told his Twitter followers to vote for "anyone but Nick", urging curious fans to "watch Andi (Dorfman)'s Bachelorette season where he started this Viall journey."

Nick tells Extra, "It was heartbreaking because I am his biggest fan. Who doesn’t like Captain Kirk? I'm also a big T.J. Hooker fan..."

His dance partner Peta Murgatroyd adds, "The show must go on. We're gonna do our best, and it’s up to William to come around or not."

The pair has invited Shatner to come to the show in the hopes he can get to know the real Nick.

"Maybe we will have a cup of coffee one day, we will hash out our differences," he says.
