CHARLES IS REVVING UP
HE was in the bottom two last week but Charles Venn says he’s not worried about his Strictly future – he is only warming up.
And the Casualty star has even compared himself to a sports car.
“I’m like a Ferrari,” said Charles. “I need a good rev then you get the best performance out of me.”
Charles, 45, and partner Karen Clifton are determined to do better, but he admits he has battled anxiety all his life. “I’ve suffered since I was young,” he said.
“There have been times when I panicked and thought I was going to have a heart attack.
“I was 15 when I first experienced it. It was scary. Through mindfulness, I’ve been able to control it.”
And the dad-of-four says his wife is loving his new Strictly bod.
“I’m down to my weight I was in my mid 20s. I see her looking at me slightly different. She’s thinking: ‘All right, this dancing will help me out.’ She enjoys it.”
