Abbey Clancy has revealed she is finding it hard to be sexy while learning her Strictly Come Dancing steps.

The model and WAG is due to take to the floor with partner Aljaz Skornajec for the first time on Saturday night’s show.

But while she may find herself on comfortable ground with her opening waltz, she admitted finding the Latin routines more challenging.

“I feel quite comfortable with the slow romantic dances, even though it is strange being so intimate with someone who is not your husband,” Abbey told the Mirror.

“But with the Latin you have to be more sexy and wiggle your bum all the time and I’m really struggling with that.”

She added: “It looks so great when you see the professional dancers do it but then when you come to do it yourself you just look ridiculous.”

Despite her self-doubts, co-host Tess Daly has revealed that she can’t wait to see Abbey and Aljaz take to the floor on Saturday night.

“I’m looking forward to seeing Abbey Clancy and her partner perform their waltz as it promises to be hot, hot, HOT HOT to trot!” she said on Twitter.

The model is one of nine celebrities who will perform on Saturday’s Strictly, which kicks off on BBC One at 7.20pm.
