Thereâ€™s been talk about the male contestants and dancers in Strictly being told not to dance with their tops off or their shirts unbuttoned, but I donâ€™t know where this story came from. It certainly didnâ€™t come from a woman â€“ topless men are part of the Strictly entertainment!
I bumped into Peter Andre this week and we had a chat about Strictly. We were both staying at the same hotel in Liverpool.
Peter loves Strictly and wants to be a part of it. He said he would love to dance with me, but the only thing that stops him is that he is scared of the outfits. I said “You would only wear trousers anyway because we would never put a shirt on you”.
Ashley and I havenâ€™t had as much time to train this week because of his Hollyoaks schedule. Weâ€™ve been training for a jive and Ashley said he felt a bit like a Daddy longlegs because he is so tall.
He has such long arms and big feet so itâ€™s quite hard to co-ordinate everything, but we have worked on his arms and footwork. Weâ€™ve got a great routine to Johnny B Goode and Ashley gets to use his guitar at the beginning so itâ€™s good fun.
Iâ€™ve given him a bit of tough love this week and have tried to push him because the jive is a really high energy dance. He said he has nearly fainted three times. He is 31 but sometimes he acts like he is 40!
I havenâ€™t seen much of my husband James this week as heâ€™s been working on something for Children in Need. I canâ€™t tell you who he was dancing with.
