She’s a pint-sized Polish pro-dancer (Ola Jordan) with a serious Strictly pedigree; he’s a muscle-bound all-round action hero (Steve Backshall) who’s dived with great white sharks, abseiled down waterfalls, scaled volcanoes, and handled some of the deadliest animals on Earth. What’s not to love about team Stevola?!
The duo started their Strictly run with a Tango to ‘Born To Be Wild’ in which Steve cartwheeled over a motorbike! Other highlights included some rather large guns on display, leading Bruno to describe Steve as ‘somewhere between Popeye and Marlon Brando’.
For Movie Week our dynamic dancing duo performed a Quickstep to ‘I Wanna Be Like You’ from The Jungle Book. Steve’s monkey-business earned him praise from the judges – with Bruno and Darcey especially impressed..
