Strictly's Gleb Savchenko 'loves having two women in his life'

Strictly Come Dancing's new heartthrob Gleb Savchenko is loving having two women in his life.

The 31-year-old Russian dancer, who is paired up with TV presenter Anita Rani on the BBC show, goes home to wife and professional dance partner Elena Samodanova and their four-year-old daughter Olivia.

Savchenko - who has been earmarked by Strictly fans as "the most attractive man ever" - told Hello magazine: "It's great having two women in my life but one is work, the other is family. When I wake up in the morning, I go to work and dedicate all my time to Anita. And when I go home, I give all my love and time to my wife and daughter."

Samodanova, 31, who is also a judge on the Russian version of Strictly, described him as a"really charming, warm and caring person".

The couple, who have been married for nine years, are not worried about whether his new-found fame could break them up.

Samodanova said: "If some couples have a problem with their marriages, the break up is going to happen anyway. They are going to split for their own reasons, not because of Strictly."
