Tess Daly is impressed with Abbey Clancy's moves on the 'Strictly' dance floor.

The 'Strictly Come Dancing' co-host says the blonde socialite has surprised her the most with her commitment and hard work on the BBC One ballroom show.

She said: "I'm still getting to know them all, so everything I find out surprises me. When I first met Abbey [Clancy], she actually told me she didn't think she would get very far because she cannot dance - clearly she can dance very well and has really picked it up very quickly. So she surprised me. I'm interested to see what will happen next."

The blonde star - who has daughters Phoebe, nine, and Amber, four, with her husband Vernon Kay - thinks it will be a male-heavy finale this year and has tipped rugby player Ben Cohen or 'Hollyoaks' actor Ashley Taylor Dawson to lift the Glitterball Trophy.

Tess added to OK! magazine: "I say it every year, but this year it really is such a close call. And my opinion keeps changing every week. Ben Cohen has been doing really well but then at the same time I think Ashley Taylor Dawson is going to be a bit of a dark horse.
