Actress Jennifer Gibney is making her Strictly Come Dancing debut this weekend and she’s been busy in the training room getting ready.
Paired with new pro dancer Tristan MacManus, Jennifer is a self-confessed Strictly fan and could be one of the competition’s dark horses. Ahead of the first live shows this weekend the first steps video of Jennifer and Tristan in training has been released.
Talking about her training Jennifer admits, ‘I am exhausted. I am shattered. I have never been so tired in my entire life and it’s only been the morning session!’
Tristan adds, ‘It’s pretty difficult for people who are learning it from the beginning. The tempo seems to be a big deal for people.’
Strictly Come Dancing returns to BBC One on Friday 26th and Saturday 27th September 2014. Take a look at Jennifer and Tristan’s first steps video below:
