London, Nov 17 (ANI): Nancy Dell'Olio, who was recently booted out of 'Strictly Come Dancing', has been chosen to launch the adult sex festival Erotica.
Organisers announced the news merely weeks after they were forced to change their plans following a legal row with the BBC.
The 50-year-old ex-flame of former England football manager, Seven-Goran Eriksson, will officially open the Erotica 2011 even in London.
The three-day event at Olympia had to drop plans for a 'Strictly Come Dancing' theme after the BBC threatened legal action.
Organisers had to change the name on promotional material for what is billed as the "world's biggest adult lifestyle show", and remove the image of a glitterball.
"The Strictly judges made some very harsh remarks about her which were in some cases below the belt," the Mirror quoted Savvas Christodoulou, the spokesman for Erotica as saying.
"In our opinion she exudes glamour and sexuality - and has embraced the eroticism of dance, the theme of Erotica 2011," Christodoulou added. (ANI)
