Appearing on Lorraine, Jay - who is starring in Big The Musical with fellow ex-Strictly contestant Kimberley Walsh - gave his verdict on this year's contestants.

"I really like Oti's partner Kelvin. Amazing stuff. He just came straight out of the gate," he said.

"Half the battle is just really dancing, even if your steps aren't perfect, getting your body into it. I just thought, 'well done him'."

Next, he admitted that he's taken with RuPaul's Drag Race's Michelle Visage.

"And I just love Michelle Visage. Damn!

"She comes out and is so easy to watch. Very cool. It makes me go, 'yep, I need to get on Strictly and see what is happening tonight."

Lorraine also added that she thought that Michelle would be there right at the very end of the competition.
