Eliminated Strictly Come Dancing contestant Nancy Dell'Olio has said she thinks McFly star Harry Judd and his professional partner Aliona Vilani will win this year's show.

She told the Press Association: "I want all of them to win but I think Harry will win, and he deserves to win."

The 50-year-old was speaking at a 'soapbox' event organised by The Huffington Post UK, at which she delivered a speech called Agelessness - Living Outside Boundaries.

She said of her time on the show: "My experience on Strictly Come Dancing was one of the most incredible and extraordinary experiences I've had in my life.

"It was the right moment in my life to happen, the best part of my life has just started in some ways.

"The dancers come on there [Strictly] - they're 30, they see me at 50 and they want to have my body.

"They are inspired to be like me.

"In this society, age doesn't mean anything."

The Strictly Come Dancing Semi-Final is on BBC One on Saturday at 6:30pm.
