STRICTLY pro dancer Katya Jones feels safe in Holby City hunk Joe McFadden’s hands — after being dropped last year by former MP Ed Balls.

Russian Katya, 24, said she and Joe, 41, are already practising harder routines than those she did with the bumbling ex Shadow Chancellor, 50.

Katya, who was sixth with Ed in her first series, said: “Joe is already lifting me.

“I didn’t introduce lifts with Ed until much later.

“I feel safe in his hands.

“He’s promised he won’t drop me.”

Katya, who will tango with chip fan Joe, has also got him to eat healthier food.

She said: “On day one I told Ed, ‘No more beers or rubbish food, like crisps’ and it worked.”
