Mr Showbiz Richard Arnold, is the second of our celebrities to reveal his tentative Strictly steps in training. Find out why he's slightly distracted from the Waltz by partner Erin's 'big blue eyes' and his sudden fear of lycra in our exclusive rehearsal footage and teaser trail. Richard and Erin are yet to choose a team name, so if you have an inspired idea, let us know below!

    Kimberley and Pasha were one of the first couples that stood out for me and I'm even more excited seeing their first rehearsal footage. Looks like it's going to be latin for their first dance with the cha cha - Pasha is already being positive and is saying he thinks maybe they could win! Kimberley is obviously very happy with her partner and must say they look very good dancing together - excited to see how they get on over the next couple of weeks rehearsal time.

    Having looked at Erin and Richard again I think this is a good match up in height. Erin seems very pleased with Richard that he is an absolute beginner and has no bad habits - hope that it all goes well guys!!!!

    No ideas for team names sorry!!!!!

    Looks as though Richard and Erin are getting along really well in the dance studio!! I think it's so much harder for the male Strictly celebs as not only do they have to learn to dance but they have to lead their partner as well, whereas the female celebs can get a helping hand from their partner!! I take my hat off to the male celebs I really do and judging by this training vid I'd say that Richard is getting on just fine with his basic Waltz!! (had to smile when I heard the backing track 'Candyman' as we're using that with our tappers this season for a super duper Jive!!!!).
