Georgia May Foote: Strictly Come Dancing partner like my brother

Georgia May Foote thinks of her 'Strictly Come Dancing' partner as her brother.

The former 'Coronation Street' actress is partnered with Italian hunk Giovanni Pernice on the celebrity dance contest but claimed they spend too much time bickering like siblings for any romantic feelings to develop.

The 24-year-old star - who is dating former co-star Sean Ward - said: "You end up like brother and sister. In my case, we wind each other up so much. We have to be friends to carry on."

'EastEnders' actress Kellie Bright also dismissed the 'Strictly' "curse" and insisted there have been no romantic relationships between the contestants and their professionals this year.

Speaking on 'Alan Carr: Chatty Man', she explained: "Kevin [Clifton] and I, we are like best friends really. Sorry! We are all boring."

The Wanted's Jay McGuiness - who is partnered with Aliona Vilani - joked that the reason there haven't been any hook-ups is because the celebrities aren't good looking enough.

He teased: "I think after ten years they are sort of scraping the barrel for who they can get to do it and they are like, 'Oh no one fancies that'."

'Alan Carr: Chatty Man' airs on Channel 4 tonight (27.11.15) at 10pm.
