Pamela Stephenson wants to keep her saucy 'Strictly Come Dancing' costumes to tease husband Billy Connolly with.
The 61-year-old star - who is preparing to battle it out against Kara Tointon and Matt Baker in tomorrow night's (18.12.10) final - explained while she loves her sexy outfits, her professional partner James Jordan is always making her costumes more conservative.
She said: "Billy almost had a heart attack when he saw me in the tuxedo and fishnet tights! There are a couple of costumes he'd like me to borrow.
"James is like my father! He's always pulling my neckline up and my skirt down. It's like I'm the wayward teenager and he's the father, it really is. The wardrobe department think it's hilarious."
Despite Pamela and James having received straight 10s from the judges for two consecutive weeks, the professional dancer confessed he was initially wary about being paired with one of the older contestants.
He told The Sun newspaper: "I thought if we got to the third week we'd be doing well. When I was partnered with Pamela I thought, 'OK, she's 60. How far can we realistically go?'
"You'd want one of the younger, prettier ones. But this is the furthest I've ever got. I'd never even got to a quarter final before."
