Strictly Come Dancing: Pamela Stephenson, 61, promises sexy finale



Sexy: Pamela Stephenson and her professional partner James Jordan rehearse the Argentine tango ahead of tonight's grand final of Strictly Come Dancing

At 61, she is the oldest contestant ever to reach the final of Strictly Come Dancing.

But Pamela Stephenson says that won’t stop her turning up the raunch on tonight’s show.
She has even gone so far as to liken her dancing to ‘full-on sex’.

Miss Stephenson, who is married to comedian Billy Connolly, said she was looking forward to performing the most ‘gorgeous’ and ‘sensuous’ Argentine tango.

She is older than her two rivals combined – Matt Baker is 32 and Kara Tointon is 27 – but said she was a ‘flag waver’ for older women, claiming those of her sex and age are often given the ‘brush off’ and ‘discounted’.

And she said winning the series would make the point that women over 40 are still ‘full of vitality’.

Miss Stephenson will only be able to perform the Argentine tango if she gets through to the final two of tonight’s competition.

She said of the Latin dance: ‘I always thought since I saw it that it was the most gorgeous sensuous dance and I am loving it. The Argentine Tango is full-on sex.’

Of taking part in the show, she added: ‘There is no reason that anybody my age shouldn’t be able to do it.

'It is perfectly possible to be athletic and enjoying dancing at this age.’
Her comments come after last week’s X Factor final sparked thousands of complaints that routines by U.S. stars Christina Aguilera and Rihanna were unsuitable for a family audience.

A recent poll suggested Miss Tointon will win Strictly while bookmakers believe Mr Baker will triumph.
