Nancy Dell'Olio is one step closer to discovering who was responsible for ruining her Strictly Come Dancing dress, after unearthing a vital clue. The Italian lawyer was shocked to discover her frock for Saturday's show (1st October 2011) was soaked in water and had the hemline altered just minutes before she took to the stage, reports the UK's Daily Mirror.
However, Nancy has found a shade of fake tan on her pashmina and a stray sequin outside her dressing room, leading her closer to the mystery saboteur. A source said, "Nancy is determined to track down whoever did this. There are a couple of leads she will explore - she is calling herself Miss Marple.She's been really hurt by the whole affair and would hate to think someone is deliberately trying to hamper her chances". The insider claimed the sequin could be "crucial" to the investigation. Meanwhile, co-contestant Robbie Savage appears to have inside information, he tweeted, "Who's the sabatoer!!?? (sic) Who knocked over the bottle of water?? I know who it was!" Nancy, who is partnered with Anton Du Beke is planning to take extra precautions this weekend and will lock her dressing room with a "small padlock".
It is understood the Bbc have declined the lawyer's request for a bodyguard, with a spokesperson noting, "Nancy wants to get to the bottom of this".
