Strictly Come Dancing's Davood Ghadami is on a 'sex ban'

Strictly Come Dancing 2017 - TX4 LIVE SHOW

Strictly Come Dancing's Davood Ghadami has revealed he's on a 'sex ban' while competing on the show.

Although it's not exactly through choice.

In a new interview the hunky soap star confessed he hasn't the "time or energy" for relations with his wife, and has given her an "IOU".

EastEnders actor Davood said: “I haven’t got the time or the energy. At the moment, your head is full of steps, beats and timings. Your body is aching.

“I’ve been working quite late, getting in early. I sometimes forget to eat that’s how bad it is. Even my most basic needs are overlooked.”

Speaking to The Sun newspaper, Davood added: “It’s maybe an IOU . . . You know in the back of your mind that, worst case scenario, it’s to the middle of December and not forever.

“And you get the biggest pay-off ever to be a Strictly contestant.

“I think she just wants to spend some normal time, more than just a Sunday, because that feels like a recharge day. You get all your energy back ready for the next week.”

This weekend, Davood and pro partner Nadiya Bychkova will dance the Jive to Tell Her About It by Billy Joel.

After appearing in the bottom two dance off last Sunday, Davood is keen to avoid the axe in order to make it through to next Saturday's Halloween special.

"Maybe the opportunity will come up to do something a bit more risque with the clothing," he teased of his potential future performance, "It’s the week I really wanted to get to in this."

Strictly Come Dancing 2017's live shows continue this evening at 6:35PM on BBC One.

And the results show is on Sunday at 7.15pm on BBC One as another celebrity is sent home.
