Debbie McGee doesn't have 'time' to find love

Debbie McGee doesn't have "time" for love.

The 59-year-old television assistant has been flooded with romantic proposals since she dropped into the splits during her first routine on "Strictly Come Dancing" back in September, but she has admitted she's thrown all of her attention into the ballroom and latin show that she hasn't even noticed the attention she's been getting.

Speaking to The Sun Online about the male attention she's attracted, she said: "I haven't had time to even notice, I've just been learning dances and there's no time for anything else in my life while Strictly's on so I have no idea."

Debbie has been single since her husband Paul Daniels sadly passed away from a brain tumour last year and, although she would like to find love again, she has admitted she still talks to the late magician before she performs every weekend.

She said recently: "I feel he is with me. When I walk down that studio floor, there is always a moment I think of him. He had so much confidence. I kind of say, "Come on, darling, give me some of your confidence". And it takes away my nerves."

And she's adamant Paul - who took part in the show himself in 2010 - would have loved to have watched her strut her stuff on the dance floor - even though he probably would have criticised her and pushed her more.

She said: "He would love it. He would absolutely love it. He would always have wanted me to do better than I was doing.

"I could imagine, if Paul was alive and watching me every week, he would give me notes. There is no doubt about that - he would find something."

Debbie will go up against Alexandra Burke, Joe McFadden and Gemma Atkinson in tonight's (16.12.17) final but she's been battling with a nasty cold so bosses aren't sure yet whether she'll be able to perform - or whether she'll even want to.

She said: "I was like a zombie. I was brain dead and physically washed out."

Debbie - who has been struggling with injuries throughout the series - has admitted this week has taken more out of her than any other time.
