The Monday instalment of our EXCLUSIVE ‘First Steps’ training clips features Deborah and Robin!

Businesswoman Deborah is accustomed to hard work in the boardroom, but now the penny has dropped that dancing also needs blood, sweat and tears, will the tough ‘Dragon’ survive? Robin is impressed with Deborah’s dedication, but can’t get her to stop looking at him like a ‘little lost kitten’. Watch the video and let us know what you think….

    Hi all,

    Well the power dresser meets the pro.

    Robin is one of my favourite pros sexy, great body and bats for my side but with Deborah not to confident about this pairing I think he is going to have his work cut out for him this year.

    Will know by Friday night might be changing my views.

    Keeeeeeeeeeep Dancing

    Robin is my favourite male pro( since Ian Waite left ) he knows how to bring the best from his partners. He NEVER had an easy pairing. Check all his celeb partners: Patsy Kensit came as a broken lady left full of confidence in week 9; Anita Dobson - Robin made her dance as a girl, left in week 9; Lisa - left SCD full of life enthusiasm in week 11. He is an excellent teacher, nurturing and kind. He always puts his partners first. C'mon Robin!

    Sadly, I think that the three mentioned above all had more native talent than Deborah does. Her posture is appalling--she, like many archers, goes all "duck-butt". But still, day 1, and can only hope Robin drill it out of her. Maybe put her in a corset? Works wonders.

    (Actually, it doesn't. You just learn how to slouch DIFFERENTLY.)
