Faye Tozer's husband Michael Smith says her gruelling "Strictly Come Dancing" routines leave her looking like "she's been attacked".

The 42-year-old Steps singer has been wowing the BBC show's judges with her moves alongside her dance partner Giovanni Pernice, but her hubby says the rehearsals have left Faye with "ridiculous bruises".

Speaking to OK! Magazine, Michael said: "It looks like she's been attacked - the bruises are ridiculous.

"Faye puts 100 per cent into it - she doesn't do things by halves!"

The "Strictly" star's husband - who has nine-year-old son Benjamin with the singer - admitted since taking up the competition, her shape has "changed completely" and now looks like a pro athlete.

He said: "Faye is so enthusiastic and determined. She puts the hours in, so her results are only fair. Faye's tiny. She's changed shape completely and is totally toned.

"She looks like a professional athlete."

Faye has hit the top of the leaderboard at times throughout the competition, and she and Giovanni received a high score of 38 for their energetic Tango to Blondie's hit "Call Me" on Saturday night (03.11.18).

She added: "It's a life box ticked - I don't want "Strictly" to end.

"I'm living the dream. I'm on a break from Steps at the moment and doing "Strictly" is the most magical thing in the world.

"It's about learning new skills and having a lovely time. It's not really about the competition for me or if I win it or not."
