The actor's dancer wife keeps in shape

Jimi Mistry envies dancer wife Flavia Cacace for being so fit.

The actor has tried to stay in shape since landing the role of personal trainer Kal Nazir in Coronation Street but doesn’t think he can match up to Flavia, 34.

She puts me to shame,’ says Jimi, 41.

We go training together when we can. She cracks the whip a bit but I do it to her too.

We went to the gym last weekend and I put her through her paces. You’ve got to believe what you’re playing!’

Working out together at least gives the busy couple – who got hitched in December – a chance to hang out.

Having got married, we just wish we could spend more time with each other,’ Jimi tells The Sun.

But we’re both so busy. It just makes the times we do have together more special.’
