Gethin Jones’s mother has apparently urged the Strictly Come Dancing star to hook up with his dance partner Camilla Dallerup, saying they would have beautiful children.

The 29-year-old Blue Peter presenter has wowed the show’s judges with his moves on the dancefloor and now it appears that his mum wants him to make a play for professional dancer Camilla, reports the Daily Express.

“What can I say? She’s blonde and beautiful. My mum wants us to get together because she thinks we’d have lovely kids. I know I’m lucky guy,” he said.

Welshman Gethin, who is currently joint second favourite to win the competition, gushed: “You don’t often meet someone who’s that beautiful with such a great personality as well. Usually it’s one or the other but Camilla’s got it all.”

Sadly for Gethin and his mum, it looks like any chance of romance is dashed because Camilla has apparently been dating businessman Fabio D’Alonzo for three years.

Prior to that, Camilla was engaged to fellow Strictly Come Dancing pro Brendan Cole – but they split amid rumours that he’d been having an affair with his celebrity dance partner at the time, Natasha Kaplinsky.
