Stoke City boss Mark Hughes says Peter Crouch is inviting pelters from teammates with Abbey Clancy prepares to impress in Strictly Come Dancing.

Crouch's model wife will be one of the celebrity dancers in the BBC TV ratings winner this weekend.

Hughes said: "Will I be banning him from watching? I wouldn't think so, but I'm sure he understands the priority of a Sunday game. I've not had the conversation with him. Once it starts, I'm sure we'll hear some training ground banter."
