The Australian actor, who was knocked out of the competition last night, said that he was disappointed that he wouldn't be able to pay tribute to his former soap character Henry Ramsay on the ice.
"I can tell you that there were plans that they had for future costumes... (laughs) well, they were playing on my history from Henry Ramsay to Frank N. Furter and everything in between," he told DS.
"I'm more disappointed about missing out on the cossies than missing out on learning about ice skating. I can tell you that one costume was sequin-studded, diamanté-encrusted dungarees with a beautifully manufactured retro late-'80s curly mullet.
"I'm not lying, I've seen the drawings and they're off the chart. So, sadly, we will miss out on that one."
McLachlan also said that he would be interested in reviving his pop success in the early '90s, when he had chart hits with 'Mona', 'Amanda' and 'Rock The Rock'.
"It is just amazing and astonishing to me. I mean when was 'Mona'? 1990? It must have been over 20 years ago. But the song, the band and that whole era when I was in Neighbours is held in such affection over here," he said.
"It is just lovely. Australians are so laid-back - and that's an understatement - and even though 'Hey Mona' was the biggest selling Oz single that year, nobody really gives a bugger! It's just, 'Oh mate, you had that song, didn't you?' But in the UK it really does generate some excitement and it's lovely.
"Here in England, if I had a quid for every bugger who in the last couple of weeks has said, 'Why don't you turn out another record? It's been too long between drinks', I could retire. Who knows, maybe I'll do something sneaky."
