Robbie Savage is looking forward to the start of 'Strictly Come Dancing' because he will be able to get close to one of the sexy dancers with his wife's permission
Robbie Savage says the best thing about starring on 'Strictly Come Dancing' is that he gets a "free pass" to get close to a sexy woman.
The retired footballer - who is married to wife Sarah - is really looking forward to the start of the ballroom dancing show because he knows he will be paired with a gorgeous professional.
He said: "The only positive is, really, it gives you a free pass to get close to another woman, doesn't it? It's brilliant. You go out at night as a footballer, you get a few girls throwing themselves at you and you think, 'I can't do this.'
"The free pass is really, well, get in there. My wife is brilliant and supportive. It must be hard for her, I wouldn't like my wife dancing with a fit bloke."
Robbie is yet to find out who he will be partnered with, but he is keen on two ladies in particular.
In an interview with Radio 1, he said: "I find out who I'm dancing with tonight (07.09.11) in front of a live audience. I know who I want. I'd like to get Natalie Lowe or Aliona Vilani.
"But Natalie's the tallest girl so I think she'll get Audley Harrison."
Meanwhile, bosses on the hit show are keen to pull in ratings for the final by screening it in 3-D cinemas across the country.
A source said: "This is going to be an amazing stunt."
Among the other stars joining Robbie on the BBC One series are Holly Valance, Lulu, former 'EastEnders' actress Anita Dobson, astrologer Russell Grant, 'One Show' presenter Alex Jones and McFly star Harry Judd.
