TV loves a trend. This lat­est show to fol­low hot on the lit­eral heels of Strictly Come Danc­ing sees five cou­ples, who’ve never en­tered a ball­room com­pe­ti­tion be­fore, com­pet­ing against each other. Not all are ‘cou­ples’ in any tra­di­tional sense of the word. Birm­ing­ham mother-of-two Donna has en­tered with her gay best friend Mike, a den­tal busi­ness con­sul­tant. Leav­ing her hus­band be­hind to quick­step with an­other man is, she con­fides, ‘A bit like hav­ing an af­fair – but with­out the sex.’ Nurs­ery teacher Roberta, 44, is danc­ing with her son Harry, 18. ‘Dance like Fred As­taire,’ she in­structs him. ‘Who’s Fred As­taire?’ he asks!
