Jones strictly nude in nightmares

Alex Jones has revealed she's been plagued by nightmares about appearing naked on Strictly Come Dancing.

The One Show host said her anxiety-fuelled dreams about finding herself undressed on the stage of the BBC One show had left her exhausted.

She told the Radio Times: "For days now I've been waking up in cold sweats having had nightmares about forgetting my costume and performing naked, live on Strictly.

"Either that, or I'm shattered having spent the entire night cha cha cha-ing in my sleep.

"Yes, life post the launch show has been filled with classic anxiety dreams."

Alex dismissed talk about rivalry between the women on the show, saying: "It's already been an amazing experience... the girls are particularly close."

But she added: "I really need to learn the basics before I can even contemplate getting past show one, the basics being my left from my right.

"If you ever see me on The One Show with 'L' and 'R' written on my hands then you know why. Believe me... it's already happened once!"

Fellow contestant Rory Bremner told the magazine former footballer Robbie Savage "couldn't even walk properly, let alone dance" in his first session with dancer partner Ola Jordan.

The impressionist added that Nancy Dell'Olio "is getting steamy" with her dance partner Anton du Beke.
