Strictly Come Dancing’s Kara Tointon has swapped sequins and sparkles for, well …  a lot less.

Racy photos of Tointon, 27, in a bra and knickers have circulated. She is sporting the underwear to show off the latest lingerie from the Michelle for George range.

The toned beauty is giving her curves a boost with the latest bra, a classic created by Ultimo boss Michelle Mone called ‘The One’.

When not posing in her smalls Tointon has been busy rehearsing for this year’s Strictly Come Dancing Live tour, which kicks off in Nottingham tonight.

She has also been spending time getting even better acquainted with her dance partner Artem Chigvintsev after the two fell for each other on Strictly Come Dancing.

Tointon revealed last week that she and Chigvintsev were dating.

“We are an official item now yes!” she said  “And we went to LA for New Year and that was lovely… I feel very lucky that I’ve met someone that I’m getting on so well with.

“Christmas was lovely and Artem spent it with my family and it was really nice. They all got on really well thank God!”

“He’s just a real gentleman and I haven’t met one of those for a while.”

Tointon had previously admitted she had decided not to date for two years after splitting from previous boyfriend Joe Swash – but that the Russian dancer had changed her mind.
