James Jordan is worried his routine with 'Strictly Come Dancing' dance partner Denise Van Outen will be a flop because he feels out of his comfort zone
James Jordan is worried about his upcoming dance routine with Denise Van Outen on 'Strictly Come Dancing'.
The professional dancer is nervous about performing at Wembley Arena on Saturday (17.11.12) for the BBC show's 'Children In Need' special because he will be out of his "comfort zone" dancing the Charleston.
James said: "I am concerned because even for the professional dancers, this is something out of our comfort zone. I am trying to push the boundaries and we've got choreographers in, because all the professionals have choreographers come in for the Charleston. The Charleston, the salsa we get help and also the Argentine tango."
Despite regularly helping her top the leaderboard, the dancer says his celebrity partner Denise likes to poke fun of his moves, especially the pigeon-style head bob he does in rehearsals.
James laughed: "Sometimes, what the choreographers want you to do isn't something that I feel either. Even today she was laughing in the studio because I was struggling to pick things up and she thinks it's hilarious."
Presenter Denise added to Unreality TV: "We are dancing to 'Walk Like A Egyptian' and we have to do all these head moves. He looks like a pigeon."
The pair earned the highest score of the series so far last weekend thanks to their paso doble routine, which earned them an impressive 36 out of 40.
