Kevin Clifton says that his and Louise Redknapp's Strictly rehearsals have been a 'struggle' from the start...
Strictly Come Dancing couple Kevin Clifton and Louise Redknapp are gearing up for their final dances taking place this weekend when the final kicks off. But whilst they’ve won themselves hordes of fans thanks to their impressive routines, Kevin has been spilling that not everything’s been rosy behind-the-scenes…
Speaking on Radio 2 about how he’s majorly ‘struggled’ with his celebrity partner, Kevin said: ‘She daydreams all the time. I’ll be trying to teach her the steps and all of a sudden she will go rogue and do them wrong.’
Accusing her of not listening to him, Kevin added: ”ll say to her, “What are you doing?” and she’ll say, “do you fancy a satsuma?” She doesn’t listen to me.’
Clifton went on to reveal that Louise’s lack of concentration has been a real bugbear of his – although you’d never know it from the way they dance, eh?
‘I was trying to explain the character and the story of a rumba to her, about an old school romance at the end of a night in Paris.’, he continued. ‘Then she turned to me and said: “I just burped bananas in your face”. From the start it was a struggle.’
However, as much as Kevin sounded annoyed, it was clearly all said with love, as he then went on to sing the former Eternal singer’s praises.
‘But the best thing about her, is she’s the friendliest person in the world’, he finished. Naww.
