Anton du Beke has joked that his celebrity partner Nancy Dell'Olio may try and fondle Strictly Come Dancing judge Len Goodman as part of their latest routine.

The professional dancer promised their new dance would be "just steps" after Len criticised their use of props, but teased: "I hope he's prepared."

The pair struggled through their first waltz after Nancy's feather boa got tangled in their legs.

Anton revealed at the Pride of Britain awards: "We were going well, but it was the feather boa that fell between her legs so what can you do?

"Next week no feathers just steps. Wait for the beginning of our number this weekend - spectacular. She might have a fondle with Len - I hope he's prepared!"

The dancer added that the Italian businesswoman's flirtatious approach to their training would get her nowhere.

He said: "That doesn't work with me. Show me the steps, that seduces me. A mere kiss is never enough."

Anton also revealed Nancy had a great sense of humour that they planned to show in their routines.
