Paul Daniels admits he has many of his 'Strictly Come Dancing' competitors scared because he is a ''sex symbol''
Paul Daniels is a 'Strictly Come Dancing' "sex symbol".
The TV magician claims James Jordan, the husband of his dance partner, Ola Jordan - both of whom are professionals on the show - is concerned about their relationship because of Paul's good looks.
Asked how practices with his dance partner for the show were going, Paul said: "Slowly - as her husband James is always hovering.
"He know she's in the presence of a sex symbol and he's worried."
Paul, 72, also reveals he has been taking secret lessons from the programme's head judge Len Goodman via internet video sharing site YouTube.
He said: "Well, after we found out our first dance, I went on the internet and there was Len Goodman giving lessons on YouTube. Jackpot!"
Discussing his chances of reaching the final, dance partner Ola said: "I am very confident. After seeing the steps he learnt off the internet, I was impressed."
Paul - who is married to his former assistant Debbie McGee - has also previously laid claim to being a lothario, writing in his autobiography how he slept over 300 women.
