BBC Strictly is teasing a first steps video every day leading up to next week’s first live shows of the series.

The latest video shows EastEnders hardman Jake Wood getting to grip with ballroom. Partnered with Janette Manrara, Jake has been impressing his pro partner with his dedication and eagerness to learn.

In the video Janette says, ‘He has a weakness in his shoulders. The shoulders keep coming forward a little bit and the elbows keep dropping.’

Will Jake be able to perfect it all ready for the first Strictly Come Dancing live shows?
