Davood Ghadami's daughters want his rival Johnny Peacock to win 'Strictly Come Dancing'.
The 'EastEnders' hunk has been working hard with his professional partner Nadiya Bychkova each week to ensure their ballroom and latin routines show of his fancy footwork and snakey hips to the best of his ability when he hits the dance floor at the weekend.
But, although he's won over the hearts of the nation and raked in loads more supporters over the past few weeks, his two young daughters Eva and Grace aren't as impressed with his moves and prefer to vote for his fellow competitor Johnny every week.
Speaking on 'This Morning' on Tuesday (24.10.17), he said: "I've never experienced anything like this. It's non-stop. I'm exhausted. The pressure is on more and more. It's everything at the moment. My kids are obsessed by it, my family are obsessed. My daughters, Eva and Grace, I think they are embarrassed for me already. They hide behind the sofa. They are such big fans of Johnny Peacock. I've been making him do little messages for them. They give him at least one vote for him and three for me."
Davood and Nadiya's steamy routines have been the hot topic of conversation since judge Bruno Tonioli claimed they looked like they were ready for the bedroom, but the 35-year-old actor is adamant his wife Isobel takes the remarks with a pinch of salt.
He explained: "My wife is used to all that happening.
"When you are playing a character you have those bookends... with this you have the bookends of being a dancer. You are doing a job."
And Nadiya - who used to pose for Playboy - has admitted her boyfriend doesn't mind her rubbing against another man because he understands that she's a dancer and it's her job.
She added: "We are doing rumba. It's the most difficult dance for a man to do. There are so many things going on to make it look right. My boyfriend. He's OK with this. I am a professional dancer, he knows the way it goes."
