Jeremy Vine to recreate Peter Andre's Mysterious Girl
Jeremy Vine wants to recreate Peter Andre's 'Mysterious Girl' video on 'Strictly Come Dancing'.
The BBC Radio 2 DJ is in good shape thanks to gruelling rehearsals with professional partner Karen Clifton and a joke remark from the professional inspired the production team to suggest he mimic his rival's famous topless promo - and he would love to do it.
He said: "As a joke, Karen recently said that I had better abs than Peter Andre but it was taken seriously - to the point where the production makers started thinking I should remake the 'Mysterious Girl' video. It would be amazing."
Jeremy has become this year's unlikely sex symbol, but he admits he isn't feeling particularly hunky.
Asked about being a sex symbol, he said: "If that's happening, then it's incredible. I don't necessarily feel it at the moment because every joint in my body is aching."
And the presenter is stunned to still be in the competition.
He told heat magazine: "I was the favourite to go out first, so every single week is more and more exciting.
"I guess it is a bit surprising, but I think people can see how hard we're working every week.
"Karen and I have had lots of crisis meetings on what we need to do to improve - we're on it."
