Strictly Come Dancing 2012: Michael Vaughan enjoyed The Full Monty!

Strictly Come Dancing star Michael Vaughan has said he enjoyed performing The Full Monty on Saturday's show, even if it did land him in the bottom two!

Michael avoided elimination last night after the Strictly judges saved him in the sing off against Jerry Hall.

Saturday's third live show saw the former cricket captain perform a Jive to Hot Stuff from the soundtrack to The Full Monty to celebrate Strictly's movie themed week.

Michael told the Sunday People at the weekend: "Doing that Full Monty routine has been hilarious and I'm ready to flash some flesh but I couldn't do full nudity on the telly.

"I didn't realise all the ladies were rooting for me. That's nice to hear."

He added: "I don't feel sexy but I've been nominated for crush of the week in a magazine and I'll take that.

"You can't complain. I don't worry what I look like but it is time to get out the spray tan. It's been hidden away at the back of a shelf but it's time for it to come out this week.

"You've just got to accept that's what the show is about."

Michael's pro dance partner Natalie Lowe added that she was impressed with Michael's cool head when he was performing live.

She told the tabloid: "He's as cool as a cucumber when the cameras come in the room. There is an element of showmanship that takes over him. He's got it in him."

Strictly Come Dancing returns this weekend on Saturday 27th October at 6.30pm for Strictly’s spooktacular Halloween special with the results show on Sunday 28th October at 7.20pm on BBC One and BBC One HD
