Here's a first preview of Will Young in training for Strictly Come Dancing 2016's first live show.

Pop star and actor Will has been partnered up with Karen Clifton on this year's series she's working him REAL hard.

The pair look to be doing a Tango for their first routine at the end of the week and you can see how it's going in a first clip from rehearsals below...

"Karen's working me really hard," says Will. "I thought we'd do 5 minutes, have a coffee break, go shopping, you know?"

He continues: "The steps in Tango are blimmin' hard....

"It's sensual, it's romantic. it's aggressive, I'm just aching, I'm just like 'Please!'"

But Karen isn't going to stop until Will can nail their first routine together.

The countdown for the pair is now on to the first live shows of this year's Strictly which begin in just TWO DAYS now.

The series will be back on TV in two parts following the launch earlier this month, first on Friday, September 23 at 9PM on BBC One 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.
