Watch Greg Rutherford and Natalie Lowe in Strictly Come Dancing training

Here's a latest look at the Strictly Come Dancing training rooms, this time with Natalie Lowe and Greg Rutherford.

Olympic long jumper Greg has been partnered up with Natalie on this year's show and training seems to be going well... ish.

Apparently, Greg is a bit TOO good and it's left Natalie having to reign in the sportsman.

"One thing Natalie keeps telling me to do is slow down and that's just not in my repertoire," he says in this clip.

"I want a pound for every time I say 'slow down'," Natalie quips.

And it's not just Greg's speed that's causing a bit of an issue.

"One thing I'm used to is massive steps from when I'm in training and Natalie keeps having to prompt me to take smaller steps," he explains.

Natalie adds: "He likes to bounce, he's got lots of energy.

"He likes to go fast but sometimes a little too fast!"

The countdown for the pair is now on to the first live shows of this year's Strictly which begin at the end of the week.

The show will return three weeks following the launch to BBC One in two parts, first on Friday, September 23 at 9PM and then on Saturday, September 24 at 6:30PM.

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.

While - as usual - there will be no elimination in week one, the marks from the judges for the first dances will carry forward and help determine which two couples will be in the bottom two dance off in Week 2.
