Strictly Come Dancing 2018: Vick Hope reveals her Abba-themed hunt for a man

Strictly Come Dancing singleton Vick Hope might be hoping for a Man After Midnight but it won’t be hunky partner Graziano Di Prima.

The pair wowed the judges with their sizzling salsa to Abba’s Take a Chance on Me but Vick insists the chemistry means nothing.

Brushing off romance rumours, Capital FM DJ Vick, 29, says: “It’s the nature of the show that you speculate about people getting close.

"Because of the way you dance, you are very close, touching each other. It’s understandable.”

Italian Graziano admits there’s been a magical spark with the radio host and hopes it will help win them the glitterball trophy.

One woman keeping a closer eye on them than most is his girlfriend Giada Lini.

“Everything is good,” says Graziano, 24, who is quick to insist there’s no jealousy between the ladies, inset. “Giada and Vick are really good friends.”

Excitement was at fever pitch when Graziano was announced as one of the new pro dancers.

Newsreader and fellow contestant Kate Silverton has told of her fondness for him.

While he has ladies throwing themselves at him, Vick hasn’t seen much male attention.

She’s been single since splitting from actor Tom Rosenthal before the show.

“I don’t have anyone to call me hot,” she says. “I’m just getting on with it and focussing on my dancing.”

But she says she gets a buzz from the support she’s been getting.

“The attention from young girls has been amazing,” she says. “I’m so happy I can inspire them.”

Vick found rehearsing tough in the days leading up to last night’s Movie Week as she had to squeeze in her radio work with Capital FM.

She says: “I’ve been surviving on three hours a night and working 18 hour days. I get up at 4.30am for the breakfast show.

“I can’t complain as I’m really lucky. But I’m tired and I hope that doesn’t hinder my performances.”

Care packages from her mum in Newcastle are helping. Vick says: “My mum came last week and she brought down lots of Nigerian food to put in the fridge, which was nice.”

After low scores for first dance, Vick says her emotions were up and down. But she says: “You have to pick yourself up again. You’ve got to be fierce like Beyonce .”
