Celebrating our 10th anniversary in front of millions of people was pretty special
I was speechless on last weekâ€™s show, when James and I were given a wedding cake to celebrate our tenth wedding anniversary.
To celebrate in front of millions of people was pretty special. Our anniversary happened during Strictlyâ€™s Love Week, which was just a coincidence! We did a wedding dance on the Sunday show and I couldnâ€™t think of a better way to celebrate.
James and I are hardly spending any time together at the moment, because Iâ€™m based in Liverpool when I train with Ashley, but weâ€™re planning to have another celebration when the series is over by going on holiday to Las Vegas.
I was really pleased with how Ashley danced on Saturday. His nerves have got worse every week, though! I need to do something about that â€“ but how do you teach someone not to be nervous?
Weâ€™re doing the Viennese Waltz this week and Ashley has fitted his training into a very busy Hollyoaks schedule. One night we started training at 8.30pm and finished at midnight. But he is always so committed. When 10.30pm comes, I can see that he gets tired and canâ€™t take so much in, but he always gives it his best.
We were so sad to see James and Vanessa voted off last week. Itâ€™s disappointing when a partnership works and then it has to end. I never thought Iâ€™d say this but they were actually very sweet together.
I hope you enjoy our dance this week. Thanks so much for all your support!
