Anthony Ogogo's pro partner Otlile Mabuse has imposed a sex and booze ban for the boxer while he's on Strictly Come Dancing 2015.

Sportsman Anthony has been coupled up with Oti who is a new dancer on this year's series.

And by the sounds of it the 24-year-old has been having a tough time controlling her first celeb partner.

She revealed from rehearsals this week: “He wants to take his shirt off! I’m like no, no, no!

“You don’t need that, I think he’s such a good dancer his talent comes through."

Oti went on to add: "I just put him on a booze and sex ban.

“He’s got to slow down on the humping. I need his focus and energy. Before the competition you need the focus.”

Fortunately it sounds as though Anthony's girlfriend is more than understanding.

He said: “My fiancee is really supportive, I think what she’s looking forward to the most is me not embarrassing her on the dance floor when we get married!”

The Olympic boxer says he's been hitting the training room for eight hours a day in order to get prepared for the first live shows at the end of the month.

Anthony told the Daily Mirror newspaper: “I think we all want to win. I’m doing eight-hour days because I want to do well and win for me and for Oti.

“I admitted I’m not the best dancer, so I said maybe we could get a few more votes if I took my shirt off.

“A few people had tweeted me saying: ‘Oh I hope you get your kit off.’ So I said to Oti: ‘What do you reckon?’ And it was met with a very firm ‘NO!’.”

The Strictly live shows begin on Friday September 25 and Saturday September 26.
