Richard Arnold wants to be partnered with Anton Du Beke on 'Strictly Come Dancing'.

The 'Daybreak' showbiz editor is the second person to be confirmed for the 10th series of the BBC show, and he admits he was delighted to be asked and would love to dance with someone with a "sense of humour and a firm hand".

He joked: "The BBC said who would be your preferred partner and I did say Anton - someone with a good sense of humour and a firm hand - but apparently the programme hasn't moved that far forward yet!"

However, it is not just the sex and stature of the partner Richard is having problems with - his costume fitting was also unflattering.

Speaking on 'Daybreak' this morning, he said: "I went to the costume fitting and frankly those costumes cut in places that are hugely inappropriate and hardly decent."

Aled Jones, who appeared as a contestant on 'Strictly Come Dancing' in 2004, joked he will eventually give up his modesty.

He said: "Do you know what will happen to you? The first week I had my costume fitting I went, 'I'm never wearing anything like this again.' By week five you say, 'Can I have it a little bit shorter with more diamonds'."
