'Strictly Come Dancing' contestant Ben Cohen thinks his moves resemble John Travolta in 'Saturday Night Fever' when he's had a few drinks

Ben Cohen thinks his dancing is like John Travolta's when he's had a few drinks.

The former England rugby star and 'Strictly Come Dancing' contestant has so far impressed the panel of judges on the BBC One ballroom show, but the hunk admits dancing doesn't come easy to him and he thinks he is better than he is after indulging in a few alcoholic beverages.

He said: "I've never danced before in my entire life - the closest I've come to it is a drunken stumble! When I've had a few drinks I'll wobble about - I think I'm John Travolta."

The 35-year-old star was terrified of dancing in front of his family and the millions of 'Strictly' viewers when he first started on the show.

He said: "I was a nervous wreck doing my first dance in front of my friends and family ... I can't stress enough how hard it is."

Ben, who has been dubbed the "David Beckham of rugby", is also generously donating his 'Strictly' fee to charity, which mirrors Beckham's donation of his wages at French football club Paris Saint Germain to a children's hospital in Paris.

He added to Now magazine: "I don't get paid for it. My fee goes to my Ben Cohen StandUp Foundation so ultimately I'm only on the show to raise awareness for that."
