‘Ashley’s got his phone with him all the time in case his baby is born!’

Welcome to the first of my exclusive Strictly Come Dancing blogs for HELLO! Online! Ashley and I enjoyed rehearsing for the first live show.

We’re dancing a cha-cha-cha to What Makes You Beautiful by One Direction – it’s a fun song so I think it matches his personality. He’s quite cheeky in it. I’m hoping the female fans will like him so we stay in the competition!


We’ve been training every day, late nights because Ashley is still filming quite a lot in Hollyoaks. He’s got a big storyline going on, so he’s been needed at work all day. We’ve been starting training at 8 or 9pm and dancing until 12, so it’s been quite strange for me to have the whole day off.


I wouldn’t say he’s a natural dancer, to be honest, he has to be taught arm work and placement, but he picks up the steps quickly.

And he’s so nice to work with, such a lovely guy. We’re having a laugh as well. His fiancée Karen was due to give birth on Thursday, so he’s had the phone on all the time in case she rings.

So, it could happen at anytime! If his baby is born during a live show, his mind will be all over the place. It’s quite scary for him – and for me as well and it’s not even my baby!
