'She got me into comedy actually she said "Jimmy, you're a joke". I'll be a f***ing comedian don't make me laugh, I'm going to be a comedian, you're a f***ing joke.'

He went on to discuss his bid to find a wife, stating: 'I've got this little problem, when I meet The One - the one I'm going to marry as I'm not married yet - I have a problem where I have a nervous reaction. 

'If I meet someone that's cute and cool, I'll be in a disco and she'll be like over there [imitates dancing] and I'm like "yeah what's up", and the woman of my dreams is over there, turn around and [pulls a funny face while  dancing 'I can't help it, it happens!'

Throughout the show Jimmy encouraged the audience to scream out his name and closed his set by sitting on the lap of a woman in the front row. 

As Barry White's I'm Gonna Love You Just a Little More Babe played in the background, Jimmy then undid his belt and whipped it around his head before cradling his classmate and pulling herself towards them. 

Jimmy - who went public with his romance with Denise this week - is no stranger to showing off his moves - having starred in Tom Jones' Sex Bomb music video in 1999, where he busted some very saucy moves with a bevy of beauties.

He went on to appear with the vocal powerhouse, 82, on a 2000 episode of Top Of The Pops, entertaining viewers by gyrating alongside some female dancers.

Jimmy appeared to be in his element as he threw one brunette beauty around the studio and she proceeded to grind on top of him in risqué scenes.

MailOnline previously revealed Jimmy was once an Italian reality star who sent flirty messages to the likes of Cheryl and Laura Woods.

His new girlfriend Denise has enjoyed a long life in the spotlight, starring on various shows and demonstrating her vocal talents on the West End, and it's since been revealed that Jimmy has forged a similar career path.   

Back in 2010, Jimmy became a household name in Italy after starring in the eleventh series of Big Brother (Grande Fratello) where he finished in fourth place.

While he may not have won the series and bagged the €300,000 grand prize, he kept audiences entertained during his stint by striking up romances with two of his fellow housemates, Rosa Baiano and Margherita Zanatta. 

What followed was a short-lived pop career, with Jimmy releasing three singles between 2012 and 2013 - although they failed to light up the charts. 

More recently, Jimmy - who described his career as being a dancer and farmer when he appeared on Grande Fratello - has shunned the world of showbiz to become a property developer. 

However, the British-Italian star did reveal that he still has an interest in celebrity culture when he struck up a conversation with the likes of singer Cheryl and Sky Sports' Laura Woods.

In December 2021  Jimmy was quick to call Laura 'Beautiful' with a kissing emoji after she shared a snap showing off one of her outfits. 

Jimmy is said to have been dating Denise for a few weeks after being introduced through All Saints star Shaznay Lewis, with an insider telling MailOnline they have been 'on a few dates.'

'It's early days but everything is going really well and Denise is happy,' the source revealed.

Denise is mother to 10-year-old Betsy whom she shares with ex partner Lee Mead and while she has performed in many West End shows Jimmy too is a singer.
