Model Jerry Hall has heaped praise on her ex-husband Sir Mick Jagger for offering support and advice as she prepares to compete in the new season of U.K. TV show Strictly Come Dancing.

The Texan beauty is set to show off her fancy footwork when the series debuts on Friday night (05Oct12), and she admits her former partner has been a great help with her performance.

She tells Britain's Daily Telegraph, "He thought it was great (taking part). He has been very supportive, and has even been giving me some music suggestions.

"Mick's a great dancer. We always used to go to clubs and have parties, and we would dance all night. It was such fun!"

Hall reveals she already has a favourite dance, adding, "I'm really keen on this ballroom stuff. My mother started it at the same age as I am now, and she even won a couple of competitions in Texas with my stepdad."
