Charles Venn on Strictly Come Dancing: "Life is all about challenges"

Airs September 8th on BBC One



How would you rate your dancing?

I’d like to think I’ve got rhythm. In terms of rating my dancing, I would say I’m probably a 6, still 4 more to go! Between a 5 and a 6 I’d give myself.

What will be your biggest challenge during Strictly?

My biggest challenge will be mastering the steps, memorising them. Hopefully from learning scripts that’ll put me in good stead but I take nothing for granted and this is completely different for me

How much time can you commit to Strictly? What else have you got going on?

I’m currently shooting Casualty, I’m playing a series regular on that so that’s going to be challenging, no doubt about that. I will still have to put in 2-3 hour sessions per day so it’s going to be tricky but like I said, life is all about challenges.

What do your Casualty colleagues will think of you doing the show?

Oh I think they’ll be excited. I’ve been told many a time ‘I think you’d be great on Strictly’, so they’ll be very surprised that I’m doing it but excited.

What do your children think of you doing the show?

My son was like ‘Oh Dad, don’t embarrass me’ and the others were like ‘It’s weird you’re going to be dancing with another girl’ that sort of thing.
