Following Sunday night’s launch show all of the Strictly Come Dancing 2014 couples gave their first reactions to BBC cameras.
Naturalist Steve Backshall, who will be dancing with Ola Jordan, revealed, ‘What I really need is someone who’s a very good teacher because I’m dancing from scratch. I have no dance ability whatsoever.’
After finding out he was paired up with Karen Hauer, Mark Wright said, ‘What’s really important to me is that I get someone who kicks me into gear with a smile on their face in a nice way.’
