Ore Oduba finding it hard to get sexy with Joanne Clifton on Strictly Come Dancing


Ore Oduba is finding it hard to get sexy with Joanne Clifton on Strictly Come Dancing 2016.

This week Ore and Joanne will be dancing the Rumba to 'Ordinary People' by John Legend and the pair say it won't be as saucy as other Rumbas.

Joanne spilled on It Takes Two: "It's not going to be sexy, we're not too good at doing sexy, are we? We're just going to be like nice, it might be a bit romantic and nice."

After appearing in the bottom two on Sunday night, Ore said of the new dance: "This week to just be doing dance is a massive bonus.

"[The Rumba] has got to a bit of notoriety to it. I'm just loving learning a new dance still being here is amazing."

On Saturday, Ore and pro partner Joanne Clifton danced the Salsa but found themselves in the dance off against Laura Whitmore and Giovanni Pernice.

After both couples performed their routines again, the judges saved Ore unanimously as Laura bowed out of the competition.

Ore said: "I think at this stage of the competition because everyone is so good, we were prepared to be in the bottom two.

"That doesn't make it any nicer but the only thing was, I loved that doing that salsa. We had such an incredible week learning it, we had so much fun. To get to do it twice was quite nice actually."

"No one is safe, we've just got to keep bringing our game," he added.


Ore went on to admit that 'victory' in the dance off was bittersweet: e said: "It's not nice, the worst thing was being in the dance off with Laura and Gio, who we absolutely love.

"I couldn't think of a worse scenario in this competition then face off against those guys."

The remaining eight couples will take to the dancefloor next week when Strictly Come Dancing returns on Saturday 12th November at 6:55pm with the results show on Sunday 13th November at 7.15pm on BBC One.
