We always thought that learning a romantic rumba on Strictly Come Dancing would make the celebs want to waltz around the living room with their real-life partners, but apparently that’s not the case for Frankie Bridge and her partner Wayne.
And he’s only got his extra-enthusiastic hips to blame apparently. OOO-ERR.
PUT THOSE SNAKE HIPS AWAY.
Some people aye?
Talking to Nick Grimshaw on the BBC Radio 1 Breakfast Show ahead of this weekend’s Strictly final (DUN DUN DUUUUN), Frankie, 25, and Simon Webbe, 36, talked all things ballroom, including how the experience has affected them and how they’re preparing for the final.
Sadly for Frankie, she can’t take her work home with her and practise with her loving hubby, hinting that his DARN HIPS just get in the way. FOR GOODNESS SAKE.
She revealed: “Wayne always wants me to teach him a couple of steps when I get home. He loves it.
“He’s more of a latin man, loves a bit of hip action which is not my forte so I don’t know why he’s coming to me for that one!
“You do find yourself practising at home. I always run through the steps in my head before I go to bed but I can’t practise with Wayne unfortunately, he’s not quite got it down.”
Meanwhile, Simon’s been rehearsing with, erm, a dining room chair. Of course.
We’ll take those hips any day, Wayne!
The two finalists both admitted that the show DOES take over their lives, but that they’ve learnt so much about themselves throughout the competition, which is always good to hear.
Simon, who came into the competition from having a rough patch, revealed: “What I’ve learnt about myself is that I’m a sore loser!
“It’s an amazing experience so I’m just glad that I’ve actually done it.
“I can fight and be a better person and I’ve realised that I can pick myself up and I don’t need anybody else to do that apart from who I’m with.”
Caroline Flack is currently the bookies favourite to take home the Glitterball trophy after receiving the first 40 of the series last week for her salsa.
BUT WE CAN’T CALL IT.
At least Frankie will still have a dance partner waiting at home after the show is done. Sort of.
