Laura Whitmore has joked her dance partner might be her "future husband" on 'Strictly Come Dancing'
Laura Whitmore thinks she might find her "future husband" on 'Strictly Come Dancing'.
The 31-year-old presenter - who is currently single - became the third star to sign up for this year's ballroom contest and joked she may end up getting incredibly close to her professional partner.
She said: "I did laugh when they were talking about your dance partner. I was like, 'Is it dance partner or is it a future husband?'
"Friends who have been on the show told me you make best friends for life. They said you do become close as your dance partner is such a big figure to you and you rely on them so much. So it's not actually romantic.
"Then again, the show has made a lot of couples. How many relationships have come out of it? Quite a few."
However, Laura insisted she isn't actually looking for love at the moment.
She added to The Sun newspaper: "I'm not looking for anything, but I wouldn't mind going to a wedding if somebody else is looking to get together."
The former 'I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here! NOW!' host
has been seeking advice from her friends, former 'Strictly' winners Caroline Flack and Alesha Dixon.
She said: "Alesha told me to work hard and that's something I'm focused on.
"I'm still a working presenter and have jobs on during that time, but I still want to train. Caroline also said she had the most fun and I would love it."
Laura has already tried on one of last year's contestant Anita Rani's glitzy costumes to get in the mood for the show.
She said: "It really gets you into character when you see yourself in it."
Ed Balls and Will Young have also signed up for the show, while Judge Rinder, Lesley Joseph and Louise Redknapp are all tipped to be taking their places on the dancefloor this year.
