Strictly Come Dancing: Alison Hammond jealous of Aljaz and Helen

Alison Hammond says watching her 'Strictly Come Dancing' partner Aljaz Skorjanec with Helen George is like watching her "ex-boyfriend with someone hotter and fitter".

The 'This Morning' presenter was paired with Aljaz on the celebrity dance contest last year and has confessed she's a bit envious of his new partner, 'Call the Midwife' actress Helen.

Speaking exclusively to BANG Showbiz at the British Takeaway Awards at The Savoy Hotel in London last night (09.11.15), Alison admitted: "The only way I can describe it is it's like watching your ex-boyfriend with someone hotter and fitter, that's better at dancing than you. I'm devastated.

"But she's lovely, she's doing so well, but she has got the best teacher, I'm not going to lie."

The 40-year-old star is still close with her former dance partner and revealed he even breaks the rules by telling her whether or not he and Helen have made it through before the results show airs Sundays.

She shared: "He always sends me a message, you know, on the Saturday, and tells me who's gone because I just want to make sure he's still in and he's always like, 'I'm still in, babe!'

"We have actually got a lovely friendship out of it ['Strictly']."

And the former 'Loose Women' panelist can't wait for Aljaz to tie the knot with his fellow 'Strictly' star fiancee Janette Manrara.

She added: "I've bought my fascinator, I'm ready.

"I don't think they've booked the wedding yet but I'm sure I'll be on the front row."
