Russell Grant plans to show Nancy Dell’Olio how it’s done by using a feather boa in his Strictly Come Dancing routine on Saturday.

The astrologer has been practising with the accessory throughout the week and plans to use it during his salsa with professional partner Flavia Cacace.

Nancy became tangled in her mint-green boa during last week’s waltz, causing her to trip and putting her off her steps. It led to her and partner Anton Du Beke collecting the lowest score of all 14 couples.

Russell has decided to show her he can do better by using a similar boa in his next dance, to ABBA’s Dancing Queen.

However, the starry-eyed contestant – who impressed with a cha cha cha last week – has been told by Flavia that they should avoid using it for the entire dance, for fear of an embarrassing mishap.

A Strictly source said: “Nancy got herself into a real mess last week with her boa, but if there is anyone in the series who can show her how it’s done, then it’s Russell.

“If you thought his cha cha last week was camp, you won’t be disappointed by his Dancing Queen salsa this week!”
