SOPHIE’S STRICTLY GROPE FURY
SINGER Sophie EllisBextor says her hubby asked her dance partner Brendan Cole not to grope her when she was on Strictly last year.
She admits her fella – The Feeling bassist Richard Jones – was jealous of her getting close to professional dancer Brendan.
And his touch of the green-eyed monster made him have a word with 38-year-old Kiwi Brendan before they got too cosy.
She said: “He said ‘Is there any way you can do these routines without touching my wife’s flesh?’
“Brendan was very thoughtful, they shook hands and quickly became good friends.”
Sophie, 35, admits that some of the dances she did on the BBC reality show were pretty sexy – especially the couple’s raunchy rumba.
The mum-of-three added: “The rumba is a sensual dance. You don’t walk up to someone in a disco and start doing the rumba.
“But I do think dancing has made me lose some of my inhibitions.”t
