Strictly Come Dancing 2014: Mark Wright rehearses with Michelle Keegan

Mark Wright

Mark Wright has revealed how fiancée Michelle Keegan has already been helping him prepare for Strictly Come Dancing 2014.

The TOWIE star is one of fifteen celebrities on this year's show and said previously he hopes the series will cure him of his "two left feet".

Especially with a wedding on the way!

Speaking ahead of tomorrow night's launch show, Mark revealed: “I know a waltz and a jive but I don’t know what a foxtrot is. It sounds double dutch.

“After we did our first group rehearsal I went home. I said to Michelle: ‘This is what I’ve got to do.’ We then had a little go."

He told the Daily Star newspaper today: “We had a laugh. She said: ‘You’re not as bad as I thought you’d be.’ She’s excited I’m doing the show.”

Mark went on to confess that he's also preparing for his FIRST EVER fake tan.

He said: “I’ve never used a fake tan in my life. I use a sunbed.”

Meanwhile, with a ring on Mark's finger, Strictly hosts Tess Daly and Claudia Winkleman have been left to scrap over hunky sportsman Thom Evans

Tess said: “There has been a lot of fighting over Thom. I beat Claudia in an arm wrestle to talk to him.”

But they've got competition... from the judges!

Len Goodman teased: “Bruno Tonioli would like to dance with Thom.”

Strictly starts tomorrow at 8PM on BBC One.
