The 'Only Love Can Hurt Like This' hitmaker used to dance a lot in her younger years but would love to appear on the BBC One latin and ballroom show as she likes to "torture" herself.

Asked on ITV's The Jonathan Ross Show if she's ever been asked to appear on the show, she said: "No, I really want to be on. I used to be a dancer. I really hate dancing now.

"So that's why I want to do it, as I really like torturing myself. There’d be loads of masochism in doing it. But I used to be really obsessed by salsa dancing when I was young, maybe 17. I used to go five nights a week and still make it into college the next morning … I've always wanted to learn to Tango."

Meanwhile, Paloma previously admitted she felt "guilt mixed with concern" about going back to work after giving birth after welcoming her second child in February.

She wrote: "I did a bit of work this week. My first two days back. The first one was ok. The second I had a lump in my throat the entire time. I was snapping at Leyman I didn’t know why.

"I remember this feeling well from my first.Guilt mixed with concern that they won’t be looked after properly .... turns out she was fine. I wasn’t! Hahaha! Working mums returning to work: It always feels too soon, whether you are back like me after 11 weeks, or if it’s a year.

"And then you are never really away because you are thinking about them, texting about them, pumping for them (like in my pics!) I’m going to try and pull a sicky. Only problem is I need about 10 years off to raise my kids hahahaha! And then there’s the dilemma about childcare. (sic)"
