"I am absolutely buzzing!"
said Mark Wright
on finding out he was paired with Karen Hauer. "Every single morning we go in, Karen is always smiling – she's so kind
and I need someone who isn't going to be too harsh, someone friendly and patient!"
Adventurer and TV presenter Steve Backshall
seemed equally as pleased to be partnered with Ola Jordan
"I have a friend who’s a dancer," he said. "She said to me 'You want Ola because she's a fantastic dancer and she can make anyone look good'
meaning ‘even you’!"
