Ore Oduba wants to start a family.

The 30-year-old BBC sports presenter has revealed his next step after his triumphant win on 'Strictly Come Dancing' last weekend is to catch up for lost time with his spouse Portia, who he married in 2015, and start thinking about having a baby.

He said: "We are looking forward to having a family but we haven't necessarily been in one place or one time together.

"We are waiting for the time to be settled after this whole whirlwind and being in the same city will help."

And while he is over the moon to be announced as this year's winner of the ballroom and latin show, he has admitted that it was stressful being separated from his wife.

He told the Daily Mirror newspaper: "It's been incredibly difficult not being together day to day. With her living up North, we've had to spend a lot of time apart. It has been stressful and strenuous for her. I'd imagine it's not easy to be a 'Strictly' partner. She had her own work, family and friends in Manchester but then you've got the 24/7 support role that is being my wife. She had it full-on but she loved it."

Lifting the famous glitterball trophy has always been a dream of his and he's thrilled he's managed to achieve that and marry the love of his life within a space of 12 months.

He said: "The thought of getting married and being on 'Strictly' were from a very young age. I dreamt of being a sports broadcaster but it was more of an ambition. However, it's out of my hands finding someone you want to spend the rest of you life with. And being on 'Strictly' is out of control. It's a dream, I can't believe I've done two of those things in a year."
