Sid Owen "can't wait" to get spray tanned for 'Strictly Come Dancing' and hopes to be "dark mahogany" by the end of the year

Sid Owen "can't wait" to get spray tanned for 'Strictly Come Dancing'.

The former 'EastEnders' actor - who is partnered with Ola Jordan on the celebrity dance contest - is very excited about getting a bronzed glow for the show, and has even promised to flash the flesh if he does well.

He said: "I can't wait to get spray tanned. Come December, it would be brilliant to be a dark mahogany.

"If all goes well and I lose a bit of weight, I might get my pecs out and try to appeal to the ladies - or will that put them off?"

While Sid is excited about the fake tans, fellow competitor Fern Britton won't be embracing them quite as much - as her husband Phil Vickery refused to speak to her when she had her first one.

She told Radio Times magazine: "The biggest row my husband and I had was when I first put fake tan on.

"Being a chef he is very sensitive to smells and he can't stand it. We didn't speak for four days.

"I have convinced him it's an essential part of the 'Strictly' experience and he will be sleeping in the spare room on spray-tan days."
