Abbey Clancy hoping for Stoke City backing on Strictly
Abbey Clancy is hoping fans of her husband Peter Crouch's football team Stoke City will help her to win 'Strictly Come Dancing'
Abbey Clancy is hoping Stoke City supporters will help her to win 'Strictly Come Dancing'.
The 27-year-old stunner has encouraged fans of the Premier League side, who her husband Peter Crouch plays for, to get behind her and professional partner Aljaz Skorjanec on Saturday night (07.12.13) when they dance to Sir Tom Jones' classic 'Delilah', which is regularly sung by Stoke's fans during matches.
Abbey and Aljaz visited the club's Britannia Stadium this week and even put in some extra rehearsal time on the pitch.
An insider told the Daily Star newspaper: "Abbey hopes that all the Stoke fans will get behind her.
"'Delilah' means a lot to the fans so it has extra meaning for Abbey. They were messing about on the pitch, going over their moves, when one of the groundsmen played 'Delilah' through the loudspeakers.
"It gave them the perfect opportunity to rehearse and try to soak up some of the meaning of the song."
Despite achieving a perfect 40 out of 40 score last weekend, the couple remain fourth favourites to win the Glitterball Trophy later this month.
Bookmakers Paddy Power price the blonde beauty at 7/1, behind Susanna Reid (5/2), Sophie Ellis-Bextor (11/4) and favourite Natalie Gumede (2/1).
'Hollyoaks' hunk Ashley Taylor Dawson and Casualty's Patrick Robinson are 15/8 co-favourites to be eliminated next.
