He added: “Although when I told my wife she just laughed – I’m not sure if it was because she’s thrilled for me or she was picturing me dancing!”

Nigel recently told the Radio Times that his wife and daughter have been watching him and Katya in rehearsals, revealing: “My wife and daughter popped in to watch us go through our routine and they really enjoyed it. It was really lovely.”

Nevertheless, Katya revealed how happy Nigel’s daughter is with his performances: “I will tell you her little face – she was so proud! That’s all that matters isn’t it at the end of the day.”
