Jake Wood

Here's a first look at Eastenders' Jake wood taking his first steps in training for Strictly Come Dancing 2014.

Soap actor Jake was paired with pro dancer Janette Manrara during the series' launch earlier this month and Janette likes what she's seen so far!

"Day one is always scary for both the professional and the celeb, I've actually been really impressed," she says in this first training clip.

American performer Janette continued: "It's always impressive when you've got someone who comes into work and is so focused and determined.

"I like that because I'm like that myself."

During a break from training, Jake sighed: "It's one of the biggest challenges, I need to get this dance.

"I'm trying to be aware of my posture."

The Strictly Come Dancing 2014 live shows begin on September 26 and 27 on BBC One.

Other celebs in this year's show include popstars Frankie Bridge and Pixie Lott Pixie Lott, TOWIE's Mark Wright, rugby star and model Thom Evans and Xtra Factor presenter Caroline Flack.
