In my apartment in London – it’s a dream to live in the UK. I have an amazing bathroom and that’s where I get ready.
I’m in my very smart loungewear: a matching top and bottoms in aubergine purple. The outfit is always the last thing to go on.
Sometimes my best friend, Graziano Di Prima [a fellow Strictly pro dancer], will be with me. And if I’m going somewhere that requires more of ‘a look’, I’ll use my make-up artist.
It can be anything from [South African musician] Zanzi to my ultimate Pride anthem playlist, featuring Conchita Wurst, Kylie – who gives me life – and Anastasia, who is all things amazing.
Haribo sweets! They are everywhere at Strictly.
My hairstylist on Strictly braids my hair and applies edge-control cream. It makes the hair fall so beautifully and helps to keep braids neat.
Definitely. When I’m prepping for Strictly, I’m at the peak of my physical appearance. When I’m not, I can indulge – I’m a foodie. But whatever stage you’re at, you have to accept how you are and be kind to yourself.
