Nancy Dell'Olio has begged 'Strictly Come Dancing' bosses to give her sexier outfits in a bid to help her stay in the BBC One show
Nancy Dell'Olio has begged 'Strictly Come Dancing' bosses to give her sexier outfits.
The Italian lawyer - who has landed in the bottom two of the BBC One show for the past two weeks after a series of gaffe-prone performances - has reportedly told costume chiefs to take inspiration from the raunchy red catsuit she wore to Downing Street in 2002 when she was the girlfriend of then England football boss Sven-Goran Eriksson.
An insider told the Daily Mirror newspaper: "Nancy's sure she needs to be the sexiest woman on the show to stay in. She wants them to take inspiration from the most famous outfit she has ever worn, at a Prime Minister's reception.
"She saw Alex Jones from 'The One Show' got to wear a catsuit-style outfit on Saturday, and hopes they can make her something similar.
"Nancy says the more revealing the dress, the better. She is convinced that she can be one of the stars of the show, even if she is not the best dancer."
Meanwhile, 'Strictly' judge Len Goodman is said to be furious after mouthy professional dancer James Jordan - who is partnered alongside Alex Jones - hit back at his criticism of the couple's routine on Saturday night's (22.10.11) show.
A source told The Sun newspaper: "He is normally quite placid. It takes a lot to get him riled but the James situation just really got to him. It has been building for some time and Len feels it is a lack of respect.
"The judges are there to judge the dancers and their partners as well as giving constructive criticism. But James just doesn't seem able to take it and went over the top in his reaction.
"A couple of the other professional dancers told James to calm down, warning they were all going to suffer if it carried on."
