What a charmer! Strictly's Danny Mac calls dance partner "a beast"

He's really got a way with words...

It's lucky Danny Mac is so hot, or else he wouldn't get away with what he called dance partner Oti Mabuse.

The pair popped into the It Takes Two studio to chat to Zoe Ball about what they've been up to and he didn't hold back.

The former Hollyoaks actor has a very cheeky sense of humour and the South African beauty seems unphased by his banter.

Chatting about what it's been like for the pair behind the scenes, he joked: "We've been pinching, slapping and arguing... I adore her, she is fantastic... but she is a beast!"

Er, excuse me?

Luckily Oti took it on the chin and didn't even bat an eyelid.

The whole studio roared with laughter with his comment and Oti just smiled.

Zoe, however seemed a little shocked. Awkwardly laughing, she asked: "Can you say a woman is a beast?"

One viewer commented on his remark: "...seriously Danny!"

Danny also revealed that he wanted to do dances that were "simple" but Oti was not impressed.

He said: "She was disgusted that I even suggested it."

Giving fans a little insight into their upcoming Viennese Waltz this weekend, Oti said: "We have a really intense story that we want to tell. It's usually romantic but we thought 'let's just twist things up."

Ooh, we can't wait!
