Mark Wright, former TOWIE star turned radio DJ, doesn’t have a lot of dancing experience. Especially when he hasn’t had a “few bevvies” before hitting the dance floor.
“I didn’t know if I’d enjoy dancing but I’m loving every minute of it,” he tells RadioTimes.com.
Not that it’s all coming completely naturally: “I am extremely competitive but I don’t know if I will be in this.”
“This is a challenge,” he continues, “and I’m going to conquer it.”
His professional dancing partner Karen Hauer is keen to help him on his way, though she thinks a lot rests on Wright’s first performance.
“It all depends on that first dance, how it goes,” she says.
Erm, no pressure then!
Strictly Come Dancing starts on Friday 26th September at 9:00pm on BBC1
