Alex Jones's nude nightmares over her Strictly debut

THE One Show host Alex Jones has revealed that she has been plagued by nightmares about appearing naked on Strictly Come Dancing.

Jones said that her anxious dreams about finding herself undressed on the stage of the BBC1 show had left her exhausted.

She told the Radio Times: "For days now I've been waking up in cold sweats having had nightmares about forgetting my costume and performing naked, live on Strictly.

"Either that, or I'm shattered having spent the entire night cha cha cha-ing in my sleep.

"Yes, life post the launch show has been filled with classic anxiety dreams."

Fellow contestant Rory Bremner told the magazine that former footballer Robbie Savage "couldn't even walk properly, let alone dance" in his first session with dancer partner Ola Jordan.

The impressionist added that Nancy Dell'Olio "is getting steamy" with her dance partner Anton du Beke.
