British actor Greg Wise will dance the Samba on Strictly Come Dancing on Saturday night to the song Macarena alongside his partner Karen Hauer
Strictly Come Dancing’s Greg Wise has teased he will be doing “something rather naughty” this weekend when he takes to the floor.
The 55-year-old actor will be dancing the Samba with his professional partner Karen Hauer on Saturday night, and it seems he cannot wait.
Appearing on Thursday’s episode of Strictly: It Takes Two, Greg and Karen spoke about how rehearsals have been going this week and what viewers can expect.
“It’s one of those dances and one of those songs that gets people moving,” Karen explained.
“Even the construction workers when we were at rehearsals today, they were like moving their hips around,” she revealed, as Greg added: “On the scaffolding outside the window!”
“You can’t help but do it,” Karen continued. “But you know what, it still has the fundamentals of Samba and a little extra, joyful hip action.”
Greg then added cheekily: “A little bit of something going on rather naughty from me, but you’ll have to wait!”
Asked what he thought when he found out he was dancing to the Macarena, Greg admitted: “I thought by Tuesday I’d want to rip my ears off! But I gotta say, this version is great and I’m really loving it.”
Earlier on in the chat, host Janette Manrara commented on Greg’s performance as James Bond during Movie Week last weekend.
When she mentioned that his wife Emma Thompson had been given a sneak peek before the live show, Greg said: “Look, I think seeing your fella doing something like that it’s quite fun…
“She’ll have more of a laugh this week,” he added.
Strictly Come Dancing continues Saturday at 7pm on BBC One.
