Georgia May Foote took a break from the Strictly dance studio to watch the professionals at work...

We imagine being in Strictly is a little like preparing for your GCSEs – you get really nervous and the week before and you just cram your brain full of as much info as possible. And that’s exactly what Georgia May Foote seems to be doing ahead of her big Rumba debut on Saturday night.

While Georgia spends most of her week rehearsing in Manchester, the former Corrie star came down to London for a special evening out to watch the International Ballroom Dancing Championships 2015at the Royal Albert Hall.

Posting a short video on her Instagram Georgia wrote: ‘Watching like a hawk,’ no doubt in the hope to pick up some nifty techniques to knock Peter Andre off the top of the leader board.

Now, we love you Georgia, but we think you may be becoming something of a dance geek!

No doubt her Strictly partner, Giovanni, is counting his blessings that he’s got such a dedicated student.

The pair appeared on Strictly: It Take Two with Zoe Ball on Thursday night and despite being the first to do a Rumba in this series of the show AND a pretty daring move where Georgia drops dramatically to the floor (see pictures above), they both seemed very relaxed.

Georgia also talked about what a total legend her boyfriend Sean Ward has been since joining the competition, ‘He get’s very nervous for me but he’s incredibly supportive. He knows how much I love it which is really lovely,’ she said.


Bring it on on Saturday Georgia, we know you’re going to be fab.
