Joe McFadden is obsessed with fake tan

Joe McFadden has developed an obsession with fake tan.

The "Holby City" hunk - who is known for playing Raf di Lucca in the medical drama - has been competing on "Strictly Come Dancing" for the past three weeks and has admitted he's thoroughly enjoying wearing the glitzy outfits and getting his weekly spray tan.

Speaking to Inside Soap magazine, he said: "I've had a couple of spray tans, and it's surprising how quickly you get used to them. They have a colour chart that you can choose from, so I went for "double dark". But when I had the second one done, I was convinced it wasn't dark enough! It's a slippery slope where you're in danger of taking it too far. I absolutely love all the costumes too. You go in on a Saturday morning for a fitting, and by the afternoon they've produced an amazing outfit that has been sewn together and covered in sequins. It's incredible what a great job the team can do."

The 42-year-old actor has already proved he's one of the front runners in the competition and is hoping he can stay in the ballroom and latin show for a long time.

He explained: "I'm looking forward to doing more Latin, but maybe that will change across the weeks - or week! Getting through the first elimination was my goal, and I just want to enjoy the rest of my experience. It's a shame it's going so quickly!"

"I knew "Strictly" would be difficult, but I wasn't prepared for how fast it moves. It sounds like we have a week to learn a routine, but it's only three-and-a-half days - after the professionals have their own separate rehearsal on Monday. Before we know it, we're in the studio on Friday showing people what we've come up with!"
