Dancing the salsa with Brendan Cole

As Fred MacAulay's side-kick this week on MacAulay and Co, I was delighted to hear the 'Bad Boy of Ballroom' Brendan Cole was going to be on the show today.

He was up in Scotland for his new 'Live and Unjudged' dance spectacular - and since we were in studio 1, with it's lovely spacious wooden floor - as well as having celebrity chef Nick Nairn also joining us, we thought it would be a missed opportunity if we didn't get them both to throw some shapes - or at least me - around the floor!

Now, my footwork ain't too fancy, it has to be said, but Nick's interpretation of the waltz, despite a quick master class from Brendan before we went on air - didn't exactly sweep me off my feet!

Thankfully Brendan then took me in his expert arms, for a bit of salsa. Mid-way through he whispered "Are you ready?" to me, to which I nodded, unaware that he was about to spring a rather unexpected move...

Well.... You can watch the video to see just what happened next!

You can see some photographs on today's MacAulay and Co. webpage.
