Jimi and Flavia on BBC Breakfast

One good thing about this time of year is that you get Bill Turnbull talking to Strictly stars on BBC Breakfast on a  Monday morning.

The competition hasn't started yet, but Jimi Mistry and Flavia Cacace called in this morning to talk about Saturday night's show.

Flavia revealed that the wire she and Vincent made their dramatic entrance on on Saturday night was very painful, but it had been something they wanted to do for a while. She says dancers view the floor as their best friend, and when you suddenly don't have that any more, you feel like you have no stability.

She also said that the partnership everyone's talking about, of former Tory minister Ann Widdecombe, and Anton Du Beke, was going to be incredibly entertaining.

Despite the new professional dance troupe, the professionals who are mentoring celebrities will be doing at least one routine as there's more time available in the show now that the dreaded dance off has gone.

Jimi seemed to be looking forward to the experience, saying that he was looking forward to the challenge of learning to dance.
