He may not be favourite to win the show, but Strictly Come Dancing’s Gavin Henson is odds on to score off the dance floor.

The newly single Rugby star, who is staying in Chiswick during filming, has already been romantically linked to his dance partner Katya Virshilas and to fellow contestant Tina O'Brien although both ladies have been quick quash relationship rumours.

Which is probably just as well as the rubber-catsuited Tina was voted off the show at the weekend and Katya has become rather vocal about her boyfriend.

Which leaves young free and single Gavin out on the town in Chiswick.

The 28 year old who split with his former partner and mother of his two children Charlotte Church earlier this year hasn't managed to make as much of an impression on dancefloor as he does on the rugby pitch.

Once named International Board's Young Player of the Year, Gavin was instrumental in helping Wales win the Grand Slam in the Six Nations and was selected by Clive Woodward for the 2005 British Lions tour of New Zealand.

There have been press rumours that he is considering retiring from the game, but both Gavin and Ospreys have issued statements denying this.

Earlier this year Gavin took part in a TV show called Human Guinea Pig for Bravo, in which he allowed a direct hit of 750,000 volts from a specially designed generator to make contact with his head. He's also taken part in the reality celebrity show 71 Degrees North which tested the strength of celebrities as they compete to reach the North Cape, one of the most extreme environments on Earth.
