    Strictly Come Dancing star Angela Rippon has issued a warning to future contestants over her pro partner Kai Widdrington.

    The duo are setting the dance floor on fire at the moment in the latest series of the glitzy BBC One Show. Following their last few performances, the pair marked themselves as strong contenders to lift this year's Glitterball trophy.

    When asked about her decision to sign up for the new series of Strictly, Angela replied: “How many people watching this programme now would love to do Strictly?” Kate replied: “Everybody does!”

    Angela, who is the oldest celeb to appear on Strictly, added: “Everyone wants to do it. The majority want to dance with Kai.” She then grabbed her pro partner as the hosts laughed. Kate quipped: “Of course they do.”

    Not wanting to let Kai go, Angela proclaimed: “They can’t have him!” She then paused before adding: “For the next week at least.”

    Earlier this week, Angela revealed she uses an "alter ego" to help her perform her sexy dance moves. Joining host Fleur East on It Takes Two, Angela was asked about her most recent performance doing the Argentine Tango, prying: “Where did this sultry diva come from?"

    Angela replied: “I have no idea. Well, it was not Angela Rippon. Angela Rippon was out there somewhere watching it.” She then went on to whisper an made up name, telling fans: “It was Valena!”

    She added that it “needed a bit of acting” to bring out the sexy moves infront of millions of viewers. Angela showcased her incredible flexibility as she stretched her leg over head head during her Cha Cha.

    The broadcaster looked sensational in silver fringe mini dress as she performed to Shirley Bassey's cover of Pink's Get The Party Started before kicking her partner lifted her leg for the dramatic finale. Rippon has said she wanted to push age-related boundaries on the show: “there are things I can do, and things I can’t. I just want to do everything properly. I’ve told him: ‘Challenge me.’”
