Melvin Odoom has revealed he's been getting secret dance tips from Lady Gaga.

The Kiss FM Radio DJ has told how the popstar has been helping him on Strictly Come Dancing although we're not exactly sure how useful her advice is.

Chatting on it Takes Two last night, he explained: "[Lady Gaga] said, 'Turn your phone off' - which is fair enough. Then she said 'Shut your mind off from everything going on' - which again is fair enough.

"But then she said I should act like a ninja..."I have no idea what that means!"

Melvin, who is partnered with Janette Manrara on the show, quipped: "I don't want to come in and give [Janette] a karate chop!"

Elsewhere on the show, the former Xtra Factor host spoke about dressing up as a human highlighter for his first dance of the series.

"I just wanted it to be fun and enjoy that and I think we did that," said Melvin.

This week Melvin and Janette will be dancing the Tango to 'Moving On Up' by M People and while he's NAILED the 'Tango face', Melvin's having a tough time with the leg work.

"It's the total opposite of what I've been learning for the three weeks," he said, "It's so confusing."

Strictly Come Dancing 2016's live shows continue this Saturday at 6:20PM on BBC One.
