Strictly Come Dancing returns Saturday evening for week six, Halloween Week, and is set to push the contestants right out of their comfort zones. On Wednesday night’s It Takes Two with Jeanette Manrara, Dan Walker expressed his unusual flaw when it comes to learning new routines with partner Nadiya Bychkova.
Speaking on a pre-recorded video, Dan explained: “Another week of Strictly, a brand new dance this week it’s Jive.
“Very different, quite difficult, particularly if you’ve got eight-foot legs, it’s just got quick there’s a lot of steps to fit in.
“Technique is absolutely essential,” the apprehensive BBC Breakfast star added, nervous about the impending routine.
Having confidence in her partner, Nadiya also added: “You have to get every step and every kick if you miss one then it’s very difficult the frame is there the steps are there but a lot of work to do.”

Last week Dan and Nadiya earned their highest score yet on Strictly Come Dancing with 28 points.
They danced the Viennese Waltz, and Dan dedicated the emotive dance to his wife Sarah, who was sitting in the audience of the live show on Saturday.
He revealed the song is one of the couple’s favourites and is a memory they both share from when they met at university.
Dan and Nadiya aren’t the first of the remaining couples to dance the Jive, as in recent weeks AJ Odudu and Kai Widdrington, Tom Fletcher and Amy Dowden, and Rose Ayling-Ellis and Giovanni Pernice have all taken on the challenge.
After a year off, owing to the pandemic, the Strictly Come Dancing Halloween special is making its return, and the line-up is spectacular.
Fans can look forward to John Whaite and Johannes Radebe dancing the Quickstep, AJ and Kai will be dancing the Viennese Waltz, and Rose and Giovanni will be dancing the Cha Cha.
Sara Davies and Alijaz Skorjanec will be taking on the couple’s choice this week, while Tom and Amy will be dancing the Tango.
Tilly Ramsay and Nikita Kuzmin will be dancing the Cha Cha also, with Adam Peaty and Katya Jones also taking on the Viennese Waltz.
Last week’s bottom two Rhys Stephenson and Nancy Xu managed to make their way out of the dreaded dance-off and will be dancing the Paso Doble on Halloween Week.

Unfortunately, Judi Love and her partner Graziano Di Prima missed the competition last week after testing positive for Covid.
Taking to her Twitter account, Judi announced: “Hey my lovelies, it’s with great disappointment that I will not be performing this weekend @bbcstrictly due to testing positive with Covid 19.
“Hoping to make a speedy recovery and dance for you next weekend, stay safe and thank you for your well wishes #JudiLove #Strictly.” (sic)
It is currently unknown if Judi and Graziano will be able to return to the competition this weekend as she is still in self-isolation after testing positive.
Strictly Come Dancing rules only allow a contestant a one-week bye if they are forced to miss a show, so they, therefore, have to withdraw should they be out of the competition any longer.
Upon her return, Strictly bosses have allowed Judi and Graziano to roll over the Cha Cha they had prepared for last weekend, should they be able to perform.
Also making a return to the BBC dance competition, it was announced that Bruno Tonioli will return to the judging panel for Strictly’s 2022 UK arena tour.
He was unable to judge in this year’s competition due to difficulties travelling to and from America in the pandemic.
Strictly Come Dancing returns Saturday 30th October at 7:10pm on BBC One.
