Melvin Odoom has imposed a sex ban on himself for Strictly Come Dancing.

Although it doesn't sound as though he'd have much to enjoy, even if he was open to some duvet dancing.

Speaking ahead of tonight's live show where he'll dance for the first time, Melvin said: “I used to have a rule that before any big show I don’t have sex.

“It is like football, you want to have the energy. So come this weekend, sorry ladies, Melvin will not be around for any lovemaking."

"I did the same when I was doing The Xtra Factor and when I was doing Bang on the Money. There was no sex for me," he added.

But chatting to the Daily Mirror newspaper, Melvin revealed how 'everyone was taken' on the show, other than pal Laura Whitmore.

The Kiss FM DJ explained: “Every single dancer on the show is taken this year. I’ve met a lot of their partners as well.

“It’s not like Strictly is the only place to date someone. The only celebrity on the show who is single is Laura Whitmore. "She’s my really good friend though. We’ve worked a lot together.”

Strictly Come Dancing 2016 airs tonight from 6:30PM on BBC One.
