Strictly Come Dancing finalist Kelvin Fletcher’s wife says she is not bothered by his sexy routines.

The former Emmerdale star’s dances have often left the  judges, who have praised his “sensual hip action”, flustered on the BBC One show.

Elizabeth Marsland told Hello! magazine: “It doesn’t bother me. I’m used to seeing him kiss Britain’s sexiest females on Emmerdale.

“I know the biggest part of a dance is the story and making it believable. I understand it’s a performance.”

She added: “I can imagine it’s difficult for people who aren’t in this industry.”

Asked about the possibility of winning, Fletcher, 35, said: “I genuinely believe it’s anyone’s game but it would be absolutely incredible.”
