Ore Oduba says his "downstairs" has taken an "absolute beating" during 'Strictly Come Dancing' rehearsals.

The 29-year-old sports presenter has bashed his manhood against a pole while training for the Latin and ballroom dance competition, and this week he is using an umbrella which has proved to be extremely uncomfortable when it rubs against his private parts.

He told The Sun newspaper: "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."

The presenter's dance partner Joanne Clifton, 32, was left stunned when once incident left Ore in a heap on the floor.

She said: "I didn't know what to do - I was like, 'I'm going to rub your shoulder.' "

Despite his injuries, Ore joked about taking it a step further and performing his next dance naked after he turned up the heat last week with a cha cha set to 'The Full Monty' song 'Hot Stuff'.

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."

Ore will appear on 'Strictly' this Saturday (08.10.16) after he survived the first round of eliminations which saw Melvin Odoom and his partner Janet Manrara controversially axed from the competition without having to face a dance-off as Anastacia was injured.

Melvin said: "It was a really sad day over the weekend.

"It's really sad to be in this position right now ... we wanted to go out there and dance like it was our last dance on earth.

"Everyone has been amazing."
