Greg signed up for the BBC dance show in honour of his late sister Clare. “My beautiful sister was a huge disco queen. She left our world almost exactly five years ago in a glitterball coffin. This is for her," he said.

"My gorgeous Diva sis, who would have been insane with excitement that her little bro was doing this. I will channel her, as her bro can’t dance – but I’m thrilled to be dipping my toes, knees, hips and arms into this wonderful world, and hope to make her proud, and obviously make her laugh...” We have no doubt that you will, Greg!
