Anita Rani is 'over' Gleb Savchenko's good looks

Anita Rani is "over" her 'Strictly Come Dancing' partner Gleb Savchenko's good looks.

The 'Countryfile' presenter gets asked by people all the time what it's like working with the Russian hunk, but because the training is so "intense" she quickly forgets about his buff body.

She explained: "People keep asking what's it like working with Gleb and having to stare at this face all day every day, but very quickly you get over it because it's so sweaty and intense - and he's quite strict!"

Anita also admitted 'Strictly' is much more "difficult" than she thought it would be and as someone who has never danced before in her life, she is finding the training "physically demanding".

Speaking on ITV's 'This Morning', she said "I've never had a tutu, I never did tap, modern, any of that... and [Strictly] is so much more intense and difficult than I thought it would be. It's all consuming! It's brilliant, and I'm having the best time, but it's so physically demanding and learning to dance is really tough."

The 38-year-old star has also called for more revealing costumes on the show, which is very unlike her usual attire of jumpers and wellies, for presenting on 'Countryfile'.

She added: "There's been a little beast inside me that 'Strictly' has unleashed... and I'm just embracing it! The skimpier the better! Honestly."
