“This dance has so much detail and because it’s a rumba it’s slow and controlled so you can see every part of it equally so you can’t really get away with anything.”

“It’s very technical,” she added. “Lots of footwork, lots of toes, lots of ankles. And we do it in front of the rumba queen, so no pressure!”

Fleur and Vito are set to perform rumba on the Sugababes 2003 hit “Too Lost In You”. Last week, they performed their couple’s dance of choice to a Destiny’s Child megamix and received the series’ top 40, with Craig Revel Horwood finally using paddle number 10.
