Want to know who the gorgeous gals from Strictly go home to at night? Well, look no further...

We’re not sure about you but each time we watch Strictly Come Dancing we are simply transfixed by those gorgeous dancers. And we’re not just talking about the blokes, either. To be honest, it’s the girls we can’t stop staring at. In fact, we think we have a significant ‘girl-crush’ going on with most of them.
