Abbey Clancy has said husband Peter Crouch has joined in with her Strictly Come Dancing training.

The model, who is currently top of the leader board after the first show, said her footballer husband, who famously dances the robot after scoring goals, would love to be a contestant himself and has been picking up dancing tips by joining her and professional partner Aljaz Skorjanec for rehearsals.

She told Strictly spin-off show It Takes Two: "He thinks he is a good dancer. Aljaz taught him a bit of cha cha. His feet are like skis."

Aljaz added: "He picked it up pretty quickly. He came in a few times to rehearsals. I knew him since I was little kid because I love football. He was even taller than I imagined. We did some football, a kickabout."

Abbey told The Sun she even thought Peter would sign up to Strictly himself once he had retired from football: "He loves it. He wants to do it himself but he can't at the moment because he is doing football."

She revealed her husband found her first dance an emotional experience: "He said he was crying because he was so moved. He was watching it with our daughter Sophia, and she was like, 'Mummy is like a princess'."

Abbey also said that she and her husband were both getting on well with Aljaz.

She said: "There is a bromance going on between Peter and Aljaz. They are always talking football and I am like, 'Can we dance?'."

And talking about her Romeo and Juliet themed dance with him in the first week, she admitted: "I did struggle with my acting but it is not hard to try to look in love with Aljaz, is it?"
