Getting carried away! Nancy Dell'Olio is picked up by the cast of the Rod Stewart-inspired musical Tonight's The Night
By HANNA FLINT
She starred in Strictly Come Dancing two years ago, so Nancy Dell'Olio loves a good spin and a lift.
And she proved that on Monday night, giggling in the arms of one of the stars of West End musical Tonight's The Night.
Nancy, 52, was carried off by a male cast member while backstage after the show, and she couldn't have been more delighted about it.
Fancy a lift: Nancy Dell'Olio gets carried away by one of the stars of Tonight's The Night musical
Wearing her trademark colour of black, the trained lawyer was in Liverpool to watch the musical written by Ben Elton, which is currently on a stage tour of the UK.
Speaking to the Liverpool Echo, Nancy said: 'I enjoyed the show. I liked watching the young cast and their creativity on stage.'
She added: 'The way they performed was great to see. The people in the audience liked it very much too. The music was great and I liked the way the actors were so energetic – they were amazing. It was a fantastic show.'
Nancy has visited the city many times, but no doubt mostly when she was in a relationship with Sven-Göran Eriksson: 'I have been to Liverpool several times. I was here in the Capital of Culture year and for football matches. It’s a great city and I like being here.'

Having a laugh: The American-Italian lawyer was at the Liverpool Empire Theatre to watch the show
After her football manager ex published his autobiography - revealing explicit details of his many affairs - Dell'Olio told The Daily Mail, Sven was only unfaithful; to get better practice for bedroom romps with herself.
'I think he was doing all this to make himself better for me, to satisfy me more,' Nancy said. 'Like practising. Sometimes, I think he should have gone to a sex addiction clinic, like Michael Douglas.'
But on Monday night, Sven was the last person on her mind thanks to the handsome actor carrying her away.
Tonight's The Night features 25 songs from Rod Stewart's back catalogue, from Maggie May to Sailing, and is the second musical from Elton that is based on the songs of a famous rock band - having previously written the book with Queen songs for We Will Rock You.

The whole gang! Former Sugababe, Jade Ewen stars in the show which is currently on a major theatre across the UK
Tonight's The Night follows a shy young man, who cannot find the courage to declare his love for the girl of his dreams.
In a bid to win the lady's heart, the hero makes a deal with the devil and trades his soul for Rod Stewart's, but of course it doesn't work out the way he wants it to be.
Former Sugababe Jade Ewen stars in the revival of the West End show, which first premiere in 2003, and is now on a new major theatre tour.
The tour opened at Manchester’s Palace Theatre last week and will visit Edinburgh, Birmingham, Milton Keynes, Sheffield, Aberdeen, Glasgow, Bristol and many more.
Visit: Nancy says she has travelled to Liverpool a number of times for football events, no doubt because of her past relationship with Sven-Göran Eriksson
