Debbie McGee reveals her secrets to Strictly Come Dancing success

Strictly Come Dancing 2017 - TX1 LIVE SHOW

Debbie McGee has revealed the secrets to her Strictly Come Dancing success.

TV personality and the widow of magician Paul Daniels, Debbie has been wowing the judges each week.

Even ever critical Craig Revel Horwood has been full of praise for Debbie's routines, telling her: “Whatever Giovanni has done to you darling it’s certainly working, because you’re dancing like a 20-year-old!”

Now Debbie has revealed a few of the secrets to her success, including her green fingers.

"Gardening keeps me trim," Debbie told the Daily Mirror, "As does Pilates and yoga three to four times a week.”

And she added: “I don’t have any rituals when we dance. I just look into Giovanni’s eyes and that is it. I don’t think about anything else except the dance."

Debbie went on to reveal how she also got herself focused thanks to a Formula 1 documentary.

“I watched a fantastic programme about Graham Hill the racing driver,” she said.

The current favourite to win the series, Debbie says she still can't believe the scores the judges have been giving her.

She explained: “I am just having a fantastic time with Giovanni. I am doing it for everybody.. You cant believe your ears. Shirley Ballas has said some amazing things. You can't believe it is happening to you.”

And Giovanni told the tabloid: I make her work so hard because I know she can do it. I am pushing myself too. I am pushing myself hard. I think we can do it more than anybody else.”

Strictly Come Dancing 2017 returns to TV tonight at 7:15PM with the latest results show.
