Pixie Lott can see why her fellow 'Strictly Come Dancing' contestant Jake Wood is a "guilty crush" for many women, because she loves his "twerking hips"
Pixie Lott "loves" Jake Wood's "twerking hips" on 'Strictly Come Dancing'.
The 23-year-old singer - who is dating model Oliver Cheshire - is competing alongside the 'EastEnders' actor on BBC ballroom competition and can understand why he is a "guilty crush" for so many people.
She said: "I absolutely love Jake and his twerking hips. I love that he just goes for it and really gets into character, that's why he's done so well in his dances.
"Everyone says Jake is a bit of a guilty crush and even more people feel that way now they know he can dance. I love being around Jake - he has us all in stitches when we're together backstage."
Pixie - who is partnered by dancer Trent Whiddon on the show - has been getting high scores from the judges week-after-week and admits the hardest part of the show for her is having to say goodbye to the axed contestants.
Speaking to Closer magazine, she said: "Having nerves before the live show is all part of the experience. It's not a massive low for me because it's what's expected from a competition of this standard, but a bigger low for me has been when we lose someone each week in the competition.
"It will either be Trent and I who leave or one of our good friends, so that is the saddest part. Everyone is so close and when you return to the show the following week and someone is missing, it's really strange."
