Strictly star Ian Waite admits Vernon Kay fantasy

Strictly Come Dancing star Ian Waite, has admitted he'd love to get up-close and personal with telly hunk Vernon Kay.

The prize-winning dancer admitted that Strictly host Tess Daly's handsome husband would be his dream dance partner, and thinks he could teach him a few tricks.

Six-foot-three Ian, 39, said: "He's got a really lovely body and he's about the same height as me, so he'd be absolutely perfect to spin around the dance floor.

"I've had some amazing girls on Strictly but it would be fantastic to have a dance with Vernon.

"I'd absolutely love to teach that man to tango."

The Latin-American supremo added: "I've always liked his cheeky northern charm too, and a great personality is essential in finding the perfect partner."

With the cast for series eight yet to be announced, Ian is hoping Vernon could team up with wife Tess, so he can strut his stuff with the cheeky Bolton star.

Speaking during the Liverpool leg of the Strictly live tour, Waite admitted that despite loving the BBC1 favourite, he still thrives on working with the other professional dancers.

He modestly added: "No disrespect to the celebs, but they aren't quite as good as we are!"
