Laura Norton - who stars as Kerry Wyatt in 'Emmerdale' - has revealed she has a "massive crush" on 'EastEnders' actor Jake Wood, who is currently taking part in 'Strictly Come Dancing'

Emmerdale actress Laura Norton has a "massive crush" on Jake Wood.

The 31-year-old star, who plays Kerry Wyatt on the ITV soap has said she can't stop tuning into 'Strictly Come Dancing' since 'EastEnders' star Jake Wood slipped into the sequins.

She gushed: "I love Jake Wood. I've got a massive crush on Jake Wood so I'm watching Strictly."

The 42-year-old father-of-two - who plays bad boy Max Branning on the BBC One soap - has won over the actress with his swinging hips.

She explained: "I met him and he was lovely, but he's so talented, I just think he's brilliant. And he's really good on Strictly as well, [he's] got proper snake hips!"

Laura even confessed that Jake has inspired her to get her dancing shoes on, but stated that she is forbidden from starring on the show as she works for rival channel, ITV.

She added to BANG Showbiz: "I want to be in Strictly! We're not allowed because we're with ITV obviously, so we're not allowed to go and do it, but dancing is literally one of my favourite things."
