Take a look to see how Strictly Come Dancing‘s Jimi Mistry and his pro dance partner Flavia are getting on ahead of their first live dance.

The clip shows the pair practising their routine with Jimi complaining that he feels like “a walking sports injury clinic.”

“The amount of strenuous concentration and exercise is actually taking its toll,” he said.

Professional dancer Flavia commented: “The problem is we’re both perfectionists, so I’m very very fussy and he’s pretty much exactly the same.”

The first two live Strictly shows are on this weekend, Friday 1 and Saturday 2 October on BBC1.
