Strictly Come Dancing host Tess Daly has said Jerry Hall is her favourite star of this year's line up.

The telly presenter suggested that the model, partnered with pro dancer Anton du Beke, wouldn't hold back when it comes to the judges' comments.

She told the Daily Mirror newspaper: "We can't wait to see what she's like on camera as she won't censor what she says.

"She is not telly-savvy like a lot of the celebs where there's a cut-off point where you can't swear."

Meanwhile Tess revealed that she though Strictly's Olympic stars Louis Smith and Victoria Pendleton love to embrace the show's sequins and revealing outfits.

The 43-year-old told the tabloid in an interview this week: "A lot of celebrities are entertainers and used to a shiny floor and talking to camera but Louis and Vic aren't.

"But I'm sure they'll embrace it. Before long they will be asking for more sequins, fake tan and body shimmers."

And Tess confessed that the other celebs were nervous of their Olympic rivals.

She added: "They are intimidated because they can't do triple backflips and somersaults. Victoria, took, has washboard abs, and those legs, wow.

"They are so muscular. I am obsessed by them."

Strictly Come Dancing airs on BBC One this autumn.
