Flirty Dancing

Flirty Dancing

Series 2 - Episode 3



Put last week’s sad post-dance café scene behind you, because we’re on to two new pairs of flirty dancers – hopefully romance will blossom this time. We start with keep-fit fanatics Nigel and Emma, whose romantic encounter is on a seaside promenade – you can almost feel her nerves while she’s waiting for him, but the beaming smiles when they first face each other have got to be a good sign. Haven’t they?

Old-fashioned romantics Courtney and Toby also have grins from ear-to-ear during their dance. “If she doesn’t turn up [for a second date], it’ll be a kick in the nuts,” says Toby bluntly. Well, we don’t want that.


Ashley Banjo matches 44-year-old kickboxing car salesman Nigel, from Bournemouth, with Brighton-based PE teacher Emma, choreographing a romantic and sensual dance with no hiding places. Also entrusting Ashley with their dating destinies are 23-year-old Toby and 25-year-old executive Courtney. Toby has been unlucky in love in the past and Courtney recently moved to London harbouring romantic dreams of bumping into her ideal partner. They're both keen to find the one, so Ashley creates a fast-paced and energetic routine, with elements of passion and intimacy.
