The dynamic duo have wowed audiences first with their “Fraternal Dance” and then with a 1920s top-hat-and-tails number responding to the theme of ‘stairs’.

This week for episode six, the second in the live rounds, it remains to be seen what they’ll get up to.

All their trainer and choreographer Kerry Newell at Hatfield’s FK Dance Academy can say is: “It’s going to be very different.”
