In part three of our series with axed Nancy Dell'Olio, she hints at an unlikely mutual attraction ? with ballroom bigwig Anton Du Beke.
Italian Nancy, former girlfriend of ex England football manager Sven-Goran Eriksson, says: "Anton has never had a better partner than me.
"He was very upset about us leaving the show. He can't stop talking about me. There was good chemistry and I loved his great sense of humour."
At a charity event after they were booted off the ITV1 series, Anton, 45, told the audience her dancing was, "S**t. No, she never got that good."
But Nancy, 50, insists: "Anton was only joking, he adores me."
The newly single glamourpuss isn't modest about her sex appeal, adding: "Anton may have been attracted to me. Who isn't? We were always flirting. I think he was probably intimidated by me so he was holding his emotions in.
"Was I attracted to him? I don't know, we'll see."
Although Nancy will be part of the Strictly tour starting on January 20 in Birmingham, she won't be reunited with the Kent quickstepper on it.
But she thinks they may pair up for a new TV show.
Nancy, a property lawyer, says: "I have some ideas. It could be about relationships, maybe the art of flirting?"
Anton's tour replacement is hunky Artem Chigvintsev, 29, boyfriend of last year's Strictly winner Kara Tointon, 28.
Nancy says: "I think Anton's very jealous that I'm doing the tour with Artem."
Ex-EastEnders star Kara needn't worry, though ? Nancy isn't about to foxtrot off into the sunset with him.
Nancy says: "You don't go on Strictly to find sexy men. They are all nice looking but not sexy to me." Before series nine of Strictly there was speculation over possible catfights between Nancy and feisty ex-Tory MP Edwina Currie, 65.
But Nancy, who recently split from theatre director Sir Trevor Nunn, says: "We became good friends."
What about her Strictly nemesis, judge Alesha Dixon, though?
After the Hallowe'en rumba which saw Nancy and Anton booted off, Alesha, 33, told her: "Your legs are so far apart and that's not very feminine."
Nancy reportedly fired off a legal warning to Alesha threatening to sue for the slur on her character. She says: "I feel sorry for Alesha, she displayed a lack of judgment."
Nancy made her name in the UK as Sven's girlfriend and as part of the WAG phenomenon surrounding the 2006 World Cup.
She admits life has had its "ups and downs", but Strictly has led to offers including a lucrative one she is considering to pose nude for Playboy mag.
She adds: "I'm also writing a novel. One of the things I would love to do is a kids' TV show. But I think the more exciting show would be to follow me in my life.
"That would be my No1 project, A Life In The Day Of Nancy."
From the glimpses we've had into Nancy's world, it would certainly be fascinating.
