'Strictly Come Dancing': Abbey Clancy Ropes in Footballer Husband Peter Crouch To Help Her Practice Her Dance Moves

Who Is Abbey's Secret 'Strictly' Weapon?

'Strictly Come Dancing' contestant Abbey Clancy has revealed she's roped in her lanky footballer husband Peter Crouch to help her train for the dance competition - because his height is forcing her to improve her posture.

The model and WAG has admitted her stance is her main concern as she gets ready for her first live show in a fortnight alongside her professional partner on the BBC1 show, newcomer Aljaz Skorjanec.

The mum-of-one has been putting in extra practice at home with the 6ft 7in Stoke City striker.

She said: "I have got horrendous posture, that is what we are focusing on at the minute, the hold.

"It feels like such an awkward position to be in - head stretched, its uncomfortable and unnatural. But with practice, I'll get it. Peter and I had a practice at home, I've been trying to teach Peter the waltz," she added.

Meanwhile, her dancefloor rival Rachel Riley from Channel 4's 'Countdown' has not impressed her partner Pasha Kovalev with her movements so far.

She said: "Pasha was using a chair earlier to go through the routine as it has more grace and elegance than me."

However she has found her mental dexterity as a numbers expert has helped with her preparations for the show, because she has become adept at using memory techniques to learn her routines.
