Spray tan stains increase Alex's cleaning bill

Alex Jones has revealed her cleaning bill has soared since she signed up for Strictly Come Dancing - because of her regular spray tan sessions. The One Show host, who is partnered with dance professional James Jordan, has upped her grooming game for the BBC One contest.

She wrote in the Radio Times: "My weekly cleaning bill has gone up by £7.50 due to the bright-orange fake tan stains on my sheets, my scalp is ridden with lumps of glue thanks to the Kate Bush-inspired hair extensions, and my flat is so strewn with dancewear that it looks as if it's been ransacked by someone with a fetish for legwarmers."

Alex talks about her secret new man

As Alex Jones swirls around the Strictly studio in readiness for tonight’s foxtrot, there seems to be an extra spring in her quickstep.

Of course, that could simply be down to the extra hours of expert tutorial from her dance partner James Jordan since last week’s nerve-racking opener. But more likely it’s all thanks to a mysterious City worker called Charlie, who Alex has been dating on the quiet for the past four months.
