Strictly Come Dancing latest: Louis Smith finding Rumba difficult

Louis Smith (Strictly Come Dancing)

Louis Smith has admitted he's finding the Rumba half of his Strictly Come Dancing routine tonight difficult.

Tonight the remaining six celebrities will be taking on the show's first ever dance fusion challenge, dancing two different dance styles in the same routine.

Louis and his pro partner Flavia are taking on an interesting mix of Rumba and Tango to U2 “With or Without You” for this evening's performance.

Louis admitted that merging the two routines together was proving difficult.

"This week we're doing the rumba and tango. The rumba is very slow while the tango is completely different, it's very quick and snappy," he said.

And Louis added: "I'm going to have to step it up in the rumba to get this passionate being across but that's not me, hopefully I can make the rumba as passionate as the tango."

Flavia agreed, confessing that Louis needed to step it up in the Rumba half of the routine.

She said: "We have done the ballroom tango before and it really suits him, the rumba is going to be a difficult dance for him, it's tough for the male celebs but if anyone can do it, he can "

This week Strictly Come Dancing is on Saturday 8th December at 6.50pm with the results show on Sunday 9th December at 7.20pm on BBC One and BBC One HD.
