Strictly’s Davood says dancing has left him too tired for sex

He's writing his wife an IOU!

Buff Strictly star Davood Ghadami has admitted all his dance training has left him too exhausted for sex!

Davood’s dancing with drop-dead gorgeous Nadiya Bychkova, who’s so comfortable with stripping off that she’s even posed for Playboy – twice!

But the ripped EastEnders star – who’s no stranger to getting naked himself –  told The Sun that his wife Isobel had no need to worry about the infamous Strictly curse, because he was too tired even to think about getting raunchy.

“I haven’t got the time or the energy,” Davood said. “At the moment your head is full of steps, beats and timings. Your body is aching. I’ve been working quite late, getting in early. You sometimes forget to eat, that’s how bad it is. Even my most basic needs are overlooked.”

Davood’s been married to Isobel since 2010 and the couple have daughters Eva and Grace together.

And he said he might need to give his wife an IOU for some alone-time once Strictly is over.

“It’s maybe an IOU,” he said. “You know in the back of your mind that worst-case scenario, it’s to the middle of December and not forever. And you get the biggest pay-off ever to be a Strictly contestant.”

Davood and Nadiya’s routines have been criticised for being too raunchy, with Bruno saying their saucy samba to Stayin’ Alive was a “race to the bedroom”.

Head judge Shirley Ballas said she hadn’t been able to sleep after Davood gyrated on the judges’ desk in his tight white trousers!

This week they’re dancing a jive to Tell Her About It, and after being in the dance-off last Saturday, they’re hoping to make it through to Halloween week.

We’re hoping for that too. Remember when Davood first arrived in EastEnders as market trader Kush with only a pumpkin to preserve his modesty? We’re just saying if that’s an option for Halloween week, we’re totally on board…
