Dad-of-one Chris will join the reality show’s star-studded line-up in taking to the floor for the programme’s second live episode on Saturday, September 28 – and this week is the first where there is a public vote, and therefore a risk of being eliminated from the competition.

For their week two dance, Chris and professional partner Karen Hauer will take on the cheeky Charleston – and dance to Out of Our Heads by Take That.

Taking to Instagram to share updates with his followers, Chris, 33, revealed he’d had quite the sweat on during the couple’s gruelling training sessions throughout this week; he’s definitely been putting the hours in.

In the first live show of the series, Chris and Karen scored a lowly 13 points for their Cha Cha Cha to Lizzo’s Juice, with judge Bruno Tonioli reminding the 33-year-old that timing in dancing, as with comedy, is everything.

We’re certain he’s got plenty more skill to show the judges this weekend.

Here’s hoping the pair will break into the 20s with the judges’ scores! Now we need your help to show the Shields lad some love.
