Strictly favourite Louis Smith gets naked and pops champers, he hasn’t even won yet!

Well that’s one way to canvas for votes ahead of the Strictly Come Dancing final we suppose.

The Olympian is currently the bookies favourite to lift the glitter ball trophy on Saturday night’s Strictly final.

Posing for the shoot in this week’s Heat magazine, the cheeky snap of Louis sees the gymnast popping the cork of a champagne bottle in a somewhat suggestive and wholly unapologetic manner.

Don't get ahead of yourself Louis, perhaps you should have left the cork in-you haven't won yet.

Talking about stripping off, Louis Smith told the mag: “I’ve got no problem getting naked, as long as it’s not cold. I’m pretty much naked when I’m doing gymnastics.”

But will he be getting naked for the Strictly final?

Partner Falvia did promise viewers last week that if they got through Louis would be flashing the flesh on Saturday.

Louis was also asked who he would most like to kiss on New Year’s Eve when the clock strikes midnight.

And it seems that Olympian shares a similar taste in women to that of The Wanted’s Max George.

And by similar, we mean exactly the same.

He said: “Michelle Keegan. I’ve never met her… yet. Hook me up, She’s hot.”

We're not too sure what Max would have to say about Louis hooking up with his ex.

The Strictly Come Dancing final will air tomorrow at 6.30pm on BBC1 with Louis Smith taking on Kimberley Walsh, Denise Van Outen and Dani Harmer for the title.

Heat magazine is out now.
