Holly Valance has revealed her boyfriend has taken a shine to the sexy outfits she has been wearing for Strictly Come Dancing.

The former Neighbours star said property developer Nick Candy has been attending each heat of the BBC1 dance show "in the front row".

And she told ITV1 presenter Lorraine Kelly that he was loving the costumes.

On Saturday's show, Holly wore a revealing clingy sheer black outfit along with a severe black bob hairstyle as she performed a routine from the stage show Chicago.

The actress and singer said during an interview on the Lorraine segment of Daybreak: "He (Nick) did ask if I could bring the wig home, put it that way."

Holly said her dance partner Artem Chigvintsev was a "passionate teacher", and was pushing her hard.

"It's funny because during the week you're sort of cursing because we're doing about eight hours a day. Artem is a very passionate teacher - is the best way of putting it.

"And then Saturday night makes it all worth it because you just get such a thrill out of doing the show and you think 'Yeah, I'm really rock and roll.' And then Monday morning hits and you go 'Oh my God, I don't know what I'm doing' again."

Holly said the pressure was intense because Artem won the competition last year with Kara Tointon.

She said: "The expectation is massive - I don't know if we'll do it but we'll have a good go."

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Sagittarius:

Beware of spending beyond your means. Sticking to a budget will help you survive the festive season relatively unscathed. It will be easier than you think to let your grip on the purse strings slip especially as the big day draws near. Let Christmas be about loving, sharing and giving. Spend quality time preparing food, making decorations and playing games together. If you haven't sent all your cards or round robin emails give some thought about what you will be sharing with others this year.More
