Strictly star Max George has revealed he has a camera set up in the studio he rehearses in with professional partner Dianne Buswell so girlfriend Stacey Giggs can watch him.

The couple are currently separated as the show's participants are required to live away from loved ones to follow coronavirus guidelines.

“It’s like a little TV screen, I’ve got a portal and it’s HD and it follows you around the room so wherever I walk it follows me. I turn that on so it’s like I’m there. Eyes on me," The Wanted singer explained to The Sun.

“I’ve got security cameras. So it’s like a dog cam, so whenever me dog wakes up in the middle of the night I get little videos so I can see what he’s up to.

“We’ve got it all covered. Obviously it’s hard of course and we miss each other loads but it’s just going to make the reunion even nicer, the longer it goes on.”

The 32-year-old singer is believed to have officially got together with his girlfriend last year.

Giggs, 38, is the ex-wife of former Manchester United player Ryan Giggs with the pair sharing two children, teenagers Libby and Zach.

She split from her footballer husband in 2016 after it came to light he had been cheating on her with his brother Rhodri's wife, Natasha Lever.

The professional is also having to live apart from her partner, former Strictly star Joe Sugg.

Saturday's live show will have a notable absence as Katya Jones and boxer Nicola Adams have had to withdraw from the programme after the dancer tested positive for COVID-19.

Bosses had previously stated that anyone testing positive would have to quit the competition to ensure the rest of the show could go ahead.
