Alex Jones finds it ''hard'' to show off her raunchy side and be sexy while competing on 'Strictly Come Dancing'
Alex Jones finds it "hard" to be sexy on 'Strictly Come Dancing'.
The 'One Show' presenter - whose rumba routine with professional partner James Jordan was branded "sexless" by acid-tongued judge Craig Revel Horwood - finds it tough to show off a raunchy side to her performances on the BBC One competition.
She said: "It's a funny thing, isn't it? I mean, what is sexy? The thing is, I don't walk around writhing in the street - it would look weird.
"It's hard, isn't it, when someone says, 'Do you feel sexy?' Well, no, not particularly, not this moment and not on live television really, particularly."
Despite being criticised by Craig in recent weeks, the Welsh star has been praised by James - who is married to fellow 'Strictly' professional Ola Jordan - for her personality and vivacious performances on the show.
He added in an interview with the Daily Telegraph newspaper: "It's week eight and she's the only woman left in the show who's never danced before. I've not seen anyone improve as much in all the programme's years.
"There's no hidden agenda. I've never heard her say a bad word about anyone."
