His first dance on Strictly Come Dancing, an explosive cha cha, was praised by head judge Len Goodman who commented: “You put the boy in flamboyant!”
But what does Judge Rinder have in store for his second dance this coming weekend?
We’ve heard hints it may involve a bit of a caning…
The TV star and criminal barrister will be doing an American Smooth with his professional partner Oksana Platero.
He teased a few titbits about what they may be up to, telling the Daily Star: “I caught her online searching for canes. I thought it was a prop for a routine.
“Now I’m not so sure. You don’t want to get on the wrong side of her. She is a force of nature and very strict.”
The star also commented on his facial expressions during his first dance while appearing on BBC Two’s It Takes Two.
He pulled a few expressive faces during his cha cha that got viewers talking.
He said: “I didn’t know I did that until I just watched it back. I’m not quite sure what is going on…”.
With a host of other exciting dances coming up this weekend, we’re sure Judge Rinder and Oksana won’t disappoint.
