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
