Ben Cohen claims he inherited "two left feet" from his dad.
The England Rugby union player has admitted he isn't a natural-born dancer but hopes to win 'Strictly Come Dancing' in memory of his late father, George, who died attempting to diffuse a club brawl thirteen years ago.
Ben hopes to impress in the ballroom with his partner Kristina Rihanoff and believes his father will be watching over him when they perform on the Blackpool themed episode on Saturday night. (16.11.13)
He told The Sun newspaper: "I have two left feet like my dad. I am not a natural dancer. I smile when I think how I inherited his moves, which are next to nothing. It would mean the world to win Strictly for Dad and get the Glitter Ball but we will see what happens. If I am there at the end then great."
The 35-year-old hunk impressed the judges and female viewers last week, with his topless pasodoble - a traditional Spanish dance associated with bullfighting - and says he is "happy" that he earned his highest personal score so far in the competition.
Ben also insists that his wife Abbie - with whom he has five-year-old twin daughters Harriette and Isabelle - isn't threatened by the sexy moves he does with Kristina, who recently split from her previous 'Strictly' partner, former boxer Joe Calzaghe.
He said: "My mind is focused on the steps and not Kristina's boobs. Abbie is fine."
