STRICTLY star Ainsley Harriott says his dance floor moves have gone down a storm in the romance stakes.
Ainsley, who’s paired with Aussie pro stunner Natalie Lowe in the series, has recently found new love.
But while he’s keeping the name of his new girlfriend under wraps, he admits his routines and new slimmer frame have wowed her.
“I am seeing someone and it’s very nice but I don’t know what’s going to happen yet,” Ainsley, 58, said.
“When you’ve had a lovely marriage that went on for quite a while and then you’ve moved on, you have to take things gradually.”
But former Ready Steady Cook favourite Ainsley admits that such is the pressure of cramming in every possible hour of training, culinary delicacies have fallen by the wayside.

“I just don’t have the time for anything these days. When I get home I am so exhausted I’ve gone back to my meals in minutes.
“And I’ve even been tucking into ready meals.
“I haven’t had a decent dinner party since Strictly started.”
Ainsley and Natalie, 35, did a penguin-themed Cha Cha to Boogie Wonderland from the film Happy Feet during last night’s movie night show.
They’ll be hoping to escape the dance-off on tonight’s results show.
