Melvin Odoom hoping to find love on Strictly Come Dancing
Melvin Odoom hopes the 'Strictly Come Dancing' curse will work in his favour.
The 36-year-old television personality is set to take part in the new series of the dancing competition and is hoping he may find love on the show.
He told The Mirror: "All the dancers are amazing and I'm a single guy. If a hot, good looking professional dancer falls in love with me, I can't stop that from happening. You can't hold back love. Who am I to stand in the way of love? I'm definitely going to enjoy the experience."
And whilst Melvin isn't worried about the 'Strictly' curse, he is worried about finding a dance partner who is shorter than his 5' 4" frame.
He added: "As long as I don't get an Amazonian woman, I should be alright. I want to be able to lift up the young lady, so I need someone on par with me.
"I was thinking of getting some platform shoes and putting an insole inside it. But I want it to be as natural and organic as possible - I don't want anything hindering my movements because the hips cannot lie."
Meanwhile, the 'Sweat The Small Stuff' host is hoping appearing on the show will improve his fitness levels.
He shared: "I'm going to give it my all. I've cut out loads of things in my life trying to get my fitness up. I've been in the gym nonstop.
"I went on a 10k run this week, and I did yoga. I hated Bikram - it made me too dehydrated - but the yoga I've done is really helpful, because I'm not very flexible, but when I get in my spandex and sequins it might be a different story. I want to make sure my body is ready for what's about to happen. Mainly because I'm going to be in spandex, and I want to give the viewers a treat. I want to be like a young Idris Elba by the end of the show."
