Strictly Come Dancing stars enjoy staying in bed

Kara Tointon loves spending time in bed with sexy partner Artem Chigvintsev.

The former EastEnders star likes to get a good night’s kip and always seizes the chance to sleep in with Artem, 31.

‘I’m a big sleeper – I could lie in all day,’ says Kara, 30.

‘Schedules willing, we do sometimes [have a lie-in together], and we’ll stay there until we need to get up for breakfast.’

Having won Strictly Come Dancing together in 2010, the couple both like to keep fit but Kara often ends up sleeping in while Artem heads off to train.

‘I just roll back over in bed,’ the actress admits.

‘He has to be in such great shape for his job and I’m just a lazy moo.’
