'Seductive' Gavin Henson
'Strictly Come Dancing' contestant Gavin Henson wants to ''seduce'' his dance partner Katya Virshilas during their paso doble on Saturday (30.10.10)
Gavin Henson wants his 'Strictly Come Dancing' partner Katya Virshilas to succumb to him in their paso doble.
The rugby ace has revealed he is hoping to seduce his beautiful dance partner during the show tomorrow night (30.10.10) as they perform the traditional Spanish dance.
He said: "The dance is all about arrogance and seduction - and I have to wield my power over Katya until she eventually succumbs.
"At first it was hard to let go, but now I feel relaxed. I hope the judges can see the difference."
The hunky star - who is rumoured to be flirting with fellow Strictly contestant Tina O'Brien - has even started taking acting classes to boost his performance after narrowly escaping being kicked off the BBC One show following a series of poor scores.
Acting coach Neil Rutherford has praised him for picking up the new skills quickly, and expects it to help him perform better.
He said: "He has so many elements to remember, including footwork, arm, leg and head movements as well as counting and listening to the rhythm. We played some theatre games and got him to loosen up and understand how his character is just as important as what his feet do.
"He was great in rehearsal and I hope he puts everything we worked on into practice. If he does, we'll see a brand new, energised and confident Gavin on Saturday night."
Katya added to the Daily Mirror newspaper: "It made me realise how amazing Gavin is at adapting to this new world he's thrown himself into."
