After suffering Strictly Come Dancing semi-final heartache last year, Ipswich dancer Robin Windsor has revealed his plan to go one step further in 2013 – by teaming up with superwag Abbey Clancy.

The professional dancer, who grew up in the Spring Road area of Ipswich, narrowly missed out on claiming a spot in the final of the hit TV show last year when paired with actress Lisa Riley.

They exited the celebrity ballroom dancing contest on week 11, but the 33-year-old, now in his fourth year on the BBC programme which starts series 11 tomorrow night, has eyed up Abbey Clancy, the model wife of England star Peter Crouch, to partner him to victory.

“She certainly knows how to shake her butt!” he said. “We have spent the past week weighing up and checking out celebs we would like to partner.

“And in terms of compatibility and getting on really well together, Abbie Clancy and I had a brilliant time together. She has really impressed me with her dance moves and hopefully we can get partnered up together.”
