Vincent's partner was concerned by sexy routines

Vincent Simone‘s partner Susan Duddy breathed a sigh of relief when the Italian dancer quit Strictly Come Dancing after the last series.

The new I’m A Celebrity contestant has revealed that Susan used to get jealous when he got up close and personal with his celeb partners.

It’s terrible. My partner Susan is not from this industry,’ says Vincent, 34, who previously had a long relationship with Flavia Cacace.

She’s relieved I’ve left. The first year we got together I had Rachel Stevens, luckily Rachel had a fiancé and all four of us met each other so it was friendly.

But [the jealousy is] the same every year, even when I danced with Felicity Kendal.’

Vincent – who has sons Luca, 4, and two-month-old Matteo with Susan – tried hard to ease his girlfriend’s concerns.

I feel sorry for her but I explain that when it comes to a sexy rhumba, I’d dance it with a 20-year-old or 80-year-old and it will always be sensual,’ the dad-of-two says.

That’s what I’ve been trained to do.’
