Michael Vaughan put through Strictly Come Dancing bootcamp!

Michael Vaughan (Strictly Come Dancing)

Michael Vuaghan has been put through his paces during his Strictly Come Dancing training this week.

The former England cricket captain only started training on Wednesday, having opted to stick to his work commitments at the start of the week.

The decision to pick work over Strictly was said to have annoyed Michael's professional partner Natalie Lowe, with an insider claiming: "Michael didn’t want to cancel the events he had planned, so he will be lagging behind most of his rivals as far as training is concerned.

“He doesn’t seem too worried about the delay, but Natalie is disappointed they couldn’t start sooner. She is very competitive and wants to win."

However it sounds as though Natalie has got her own back in training this week, as she works to catch up Michael on the all of the basics he has missed.

She tweeted this evening: "Very proud of @MichaelVaughan Hard working, dedicated & lots of fun. Day 3 of Lowies boot camp completed! #VERYHAPPY ;D"

It all seemed to be going well for Robin Windsor and Lisa Riley too, with Robin tweeting: "Incredible first week training with @Reallisariley so much so I'm shimmying all the way back to London... Happy bobby ;)"

But James Jordan claimed that his celeb partner Denise Van Outen needed to improve!

He tweeted: "I would like to be nice like all the other pro's and say how great @denise_vanouten was today... But she wasn't, so I won't! #mustdobetter"
