Strictly Come Dancing star Ore Oduba says rehearsing for the Latin and Ballroom dance competition has put his “downstairs” through an “absolute beating”.

The BBC Sports presenter is partnered with the professional dancer Joanne Clifton and has recalled how during one of their gruelling practice sessions he slammed his manhood against a pole.

In another risky move the 29 year old hunk dances with an umbrella inbetween his legs and he admits he’s not enjoying the “action” his private parts are getting.

Speaking to The Sun newspaper, he said: “I’ve had a couple of moments with my penis. Last week I rammed myself downstairs into the pole before the cha cha routine.”

“This week there’s an umbrella and there’s pump action – it worked backwards and again same area, same pain, same mistake. Every week there’ll be a downstairs moment. I’m taking an absolute beating.”

Joanne added: “I didn’t know what to do – I was like, ‘I’m going to rub your shoulder.’ ”

Ore survived the first round of eliminations last week which saw Melvin Odoom and his partner Janet Manrara unexpectedly eliminated from the competition without having to face a dance-off as Anastacia was injured.

Seeing their pal get booted out has spurred on Ore and Joanne to give viewers at home a dance they won’t forget and the star joked he’d do his next performance in the buff if it kept him in the show.

He said: “That’s what you can look forward to if you keep us in the competition, we’re doing it in the buff. We haven’t told the management or the executives of the show yet.”
