Ore Oduba is too tired to have sex with his wife Portia.

The sports journalist has admitted his bedroom antics have taken a battering since he signed up to 'Strictly Come Dancing' in September because his energetic routines and long rehearsal days have left him completely wiped out and lethargic.

Speaking to The Sun newspaper, he said: "Everything is fatigued, the body is working a little less efficiently than it was at the start of this journey, tiredness is kicking in. I've not felt this tired and been so happy at the same time.

"Every day I wake up and it's harder to get out of bed. It's really taking its toll on the body. A couple of times in the last week I've found myself in bed and my body is telling me to stay horizontal for as long as possible."

The couple - who met at Loughborough University more than five years ago - tied the knot last year in Penshurst Place in Kent and recently celebrated their first anniversary.

He said previously: "On my wedding day I cried from 11 in the morning until 2am that night. There's a picture of me wailing, my best men there laughing and Portia absolutely cracking up next to me - I am the only one crying."

Portia added: "Everyone says, 'Your wedding dance must have been amazing.' But it was just a little dance. Ore whispered, 'Shall I lift you up?' I said, 'No' while smiling through my teeth. Now I see him lifting Jo up and spinning her around."

Although he's refusing to give the blonde bombshell any action in the bedroom for the time being, Portia has been travelling down to London every weekend to watch her handsome beau perform with his professional partner Joanne Clifton.
