Candy Lane is dancing on the ceiling thanks to a new love in her life.
In an interview with Woman’s Weekly, it’s apparent the 56-year-old TV presenter is completely besotted with new beau Ricky Hancock.
Hanock is a 44-year-old professional dancer and the pair tell the magazine neither of them notice the 12-year age gap.
Hancock made the first move anonymously by sending Lane two dozen red roses last September.
“I never thought we were mixing business with pleasure – I never thing about the negatives. But the cute thing is, when everyone at the studio realised we’d started seeing each other, they were really pleased because they all love Ricky and they’re all quite protective of me,” said Lane. “They thought it was fantastic.”
The pair have officially been dating for four months. “I have to pinch myself every morning. I feel so lucky that we’ve run into each other. I’ve never felt this strong about someone before,” says Hancock.
“Everyone knows Candy as the high-profile celebrity dancer, but I’m lucky because I get to see a better side of her. She’s a really soft, beautiful woman... We just love watching an old movie together on the couch or holding hands in the supermarket.”
Candy’s daughter Jazz, 22, is yet to meet Ricky, but her son Zak, 19, lives with her and gets on well with him.
Ricky has two younger children, Nathan, 10, and Violet, 8, who both attend Lane’s Latin dance classes.
