Speaking exclusively to The Sun Online about her thoughts on co-star Gemma, Melody revealed: “I think we’re all doing this show to help inspire people to step outside of their comfort zones. And she out of everyone is really challenging herself. I think there should be some level of respect for that.

“I definitely don’t think Gemma is going to quit. She is working her bum off, she genuinely is.”

The chart-topping singer added: “What I’ve noticed with Gemma is she’s just like all the rest of us.

“When we’re getting our hair and make up done – she’s got a huge personality obviously, what you see is what you get – but she’s sitting back in the chair and having moments of insecurity like all the rest of us.”

Last week, the nimble star wowed crowds by doing the splits – so she’s set the bar high for herself.
