Anastacia is LOVING her time on Strictly Come Dancing 2016... and being with Brendan Cole.

In this first look from training we see they are getting along like a house on fire although Anastacia may be a little too eager.

The singer raves: "I am loving every minute of Brendan giving me his full attention and kindness, he's being very patient with me. I feel as though the possibility of being a dancer is in the very near horizon."

Anastacia goes on: "It is a perfecting pairing. I'm really, really excited. He's great, he's awesome."

Brendan tells the cameras: "We've hit it off instantly, we've got a great little relationship forming, we're going to have fun."

However he adds: "I feel like I'm going to have to pull her back a little bit because her personality, it's bigger than this show."

The pair's first dance together is now just over a week away with this year's Strictly Come Dancing live shows starting next week on BBC One in two parts, first on Friday, September 23 and then on Saturday, September 24.

The couples will be split across the two shows with six couples dancing on Friday and the remaining nine on Saturday although the line up on each show has not yet been confirmed.

As usual for the first week of Strictly live shows, there will be no public vote and no eliminations however the marks from the judges for the first dances will carry forward and help determine which two couples will be in the bottom dance off in Week 2.

Meanwhile, it's been confirmed today that Bee Gees singer Barry Gibb has been booked for that first results show on October 2 to perform.
