In this first training clip, Daybreak presenter Richard reveals he’ll be doing a waltz on the first live show with Erin.
But he admits: “I’ve never danced like this before… occasionally in my head… but never like this.”
His dance partner Erin revealed: “He’s been pleasantly surprising! I love Richard, he’s a sweetie-pie.”
The Strictly Come Dancing 2012 live shows start on October 5 on BBC One.
