Mark Wright has confessed he hopes taking part in 'Strictly Come Dancing' will improve his rhythm ahead of his wedding dance with fiance Michelle Keegan

Mark Wright hopes 'Strictly Come Dancing' will improve his dance moves before his wedding.

The former 'The Only Way Is Essex' star is competing alongside a number of other celebrities in the current series of the BBC One dance contest and has revealed he hopes his vigorous training will improve his rhythm ahead of his nuptials to former 'Coronation Street' actress Michelle Keegan.

He told BANG Showbiz at the TV Choice Awards at the London Hilton on Park Lane: "I've always had a fear of my wedding dance because if you can't move everyone's looking at you at that moment so I think that this is going to be great practice for it."

However, the 27-year-old hunk - who was paired with professional dancer Karen Hauer on Sunday (07.09.14) night's launch show - confessed he thinks his two left feet could affect his chances of winning the show.

He said: "At the moment I'm learning the steps which is great but my biggest problem is natural rhythm and being able to move to the right beat. They say like, '5,6,7,8' and I'm like, 'Where's 5?'"

Mark is also worried about being told off by his partner if he messes around during practice and rehearsals.

Quizzed on whether he and Karen were getting along, he added: "I've heard that she's quite strict. As I said on the show, 'Oh I've got the best partner because she's so quiet and smiley and she's not strict', and then all the audience laughed and I was like, 'Strictly fans know more than me, this girl's strict!'"
