Strictly Come Dancing Russell Grant 'predicted' his dance partner

Strictly Come Dancing contestant Russell Grant has claimed that he predicted who his professional dance partner would be.

The astrologer said he has a feeling he would be dancing with Flavia Cacace.

He said at the launch show: "I did, of course. I said Pisces or Libra and that was that.

"I've got Venus, Mars and Jupiter in Pisces so that's why I knew [Flavia] was Pisces."

Grant added that he was pleased to be partner with Cacace.

He said: "For me this is the love and the joy of music, which dance links into.

"We had a chat [before we knew we were paired up] when I said that basically music motivates me and if the music's crap I can't move a muscle. We both said the same."

Russell admitted that he was looking forward to the Latin dances, and thought that Nancy Dell'Olio and Anton Du Beke will make a good pairing.

He told Dell'Olio: "You need [someone] soft and sensitive who will keep you under control.

"You'll be so wonderful together, honestly."

Meanwhile, professional dancer James Jordan has claimed that Grant could be a "dark horse" in the competition.
