Faye Tozer relying on pole fitness to win Strictly Come Dancing

Faye Tozer thinks pole dancing will help her win "Strictly Come Dancing".

The Steps star managed to claim the top spot of the leaderboard last week when her and her partner Giovanni Pernice's energetic Cha-Cha-Cha dazzled the judges and, although she's practicing her routines every day to make sure she stays at the top, she's also trying to squeeze in pole sessions as well because she's convinced the erotic style will help her ultimately lift the glitter ball trophy.

Speaking to the Daily Mirror newspaper, she said: "I learned to pole dance for the play "Saucy Jack And The Space Vixens" in 2006 and I loved it.

"I've had a training session today and I'm red raw all the way across my inner thighs, and I can see bruising coming up already. I've been doing a Downward Crucifix and Martini Glass pose. All good fun, but really hard work and it's painful.

"The better you get, the more friction burns you get."

Debbie McGee wants to find love again

The 42-year-old singer may have experience when it comes to shaking her hips - thanks to her career in a pop band - but the blonde beauty has admitted the thought of performing live on television fills her with "dread."

She said recently: "What fills me with dread is the idea of going on TV and dancing live in front of so many people. But I was born for this. More sequins, more spray tan, more feathers. I'm ready - throw it at me.

"I've been wanting to do "Strictly..." for years! I'm a huge fan. I had preconceived ideas about what it was going to be like, but it's everything and more."

And Faye is looking forward to seeing how her son Benjamin, whom she has with her husband Michael Smith, reacts to seeing her "twirling around on telly."

She said: "I'm excited for my little boy to see his mum twirling around on telly."
