Strictly’s Fleur East reveals her husband’s unexpected reaction to getting intimate with her dance partner Vito


STRICTLY star Fleur East has revealed that her husband enjoys watching her “hot and steamy” performances with pro dancer Vito Coppola.

X Factor star Fleur, 34, who is dancing with the Italian dancer on the BBC show, married Marcel Badiane-Robin in a secret ceremony in Morocco in 2019.

And she told how the fashion designer has been enjoying every minute of her Strictly routines.

“It’s very hot and steamy and obviously it’s really hard to get into the mode of that,” Fleur said on her Hits Radio Breakfast Show.

“It’s quite awkward when you’re in rehearsals; it’s like ‘this is weird’ but we both said we need to do one where we fully go for it, and we commit to that passion and that emotion.

“So we went for it – and it was quite intense – and my husband Marcel was there watching and at the end of the dance he went ‘hmmm… More!’ I was like ‘What? Are you sure?!’ 

“He said you need to commit to this and you need to give it 100%.”

Earlier this week, Fleur’s dance partner Vito had been in the Hits Radio breakfast studio and revealed his excitement about this weekend’s dance.

He said: “This dance it’s about fire and it’s about passion. Until now we’ve done more ballroom, except for the first week, so now we can finally get more into our mood, more hot.”

He added that Sax singer has nothing to worry about this week despite being in the dreaded dance off last weekend:

“For me there’s no added pressure – in Italy we say what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger,” the ballroom dancer said.

“So, we are strong and I’m so positive because I’m sure about Fleur.

“Now we are starting to get into the real heart of the programme, and we have so many styles to do yet, so to have the possibility to share this tango with everyone is amazing.”

The singer was saved by the judges on the BBC dancing competition this week after failing to impress them with her dance.

Fleur, 34, faced Richie and his dance partner Giovanni Pernice in a tense dance off before she was saved by the panel.

The Favourite Thing singer landed herself in the bottom two after their movie-themed dance inspired by The Little Mermaid.

Taking to Twitter, Fleur reacted to being saved in the dance off with a photograph of herself and dance partner Vito Coppola.

“So grateful to have been saved by the judges. So sad to see my friend Richie go!” she wrote to her fans.

“Thank you for all of your supportive messages, we will work really hard this week #StrictlyComeDancing.”

The pair were in the bottom two last weekend
