Strictly speaking, Anton’s a star
I make no secret of being a big Strictly fan and, having taken part in the show, it was nice to be briefly back in the fold again to record an interview for a preview show called Strictly the Best. It featured a number of past contestants talking about their experiences, and I was on with footballer Robbie Savage. We got on fine. For me Anton, my Strictly partner, is the star of the show. I’ll be teaming up again with him in December for an exhibition tennis match at the Royal Albert Hall where we’re taking on my Jamie and presenter Helen Skelton. When I did Strictly I taught Anton how to play tennis, so this is payback time as he will soon know what it’s like to perform in front of large crowd doing something you’re not particularly good at.
