Strictly Come Dancing star Caroline Quentin joked that pro partner Johannes Radebe gets her name wrong in practice.

Actress Caroline and Johannes appeared on Strictly's sister show It Takes Two to chat with Gethin Jones about what Saturday's show has in store for them.

They've settled on the Cha Cha, making Johannes nervous after the dance saw him and Corrie's Catherine Tyldesley eliminated last year.

"So this guy," said Gethin, gesturing at Johannes, "two-time South African Latin champion, you're in good hands, but actually you don't love the Cha Cha?"

"No I don't!" Johannes admitted, "I was eliminated on the Cha Cha last year. It's the memories."

"Are you superstitious?" queried Caroline, "Because you and Catherine got knocked out at exactly this time last year with the Cha Cha.

"I don't know why that would worry you! Thanks for bringing that up, Gethin!"

Gethin laughed: "And stop calling her Catherine in rehearsals!"

"Yeah, stop calling me Catherine!" joked Caroline.

This comes after Caroline claimed to have brought out the "unpleasant" side to Johannes during their gruelling training regimen.

Appearing on a video call to The One Show from the dance studio, Gethin branded Johannes "the nicest man in the world."

Caroline chuckled: "You really don't know him as well as you think you do, he appears to be very nice but there's some stuff in here that I've revealed and it's not pleasant."

Saturday's show saw the pair take to the floor with an elegant Waltz to With You I'm Born Again by Billy Preston and Syreeta Wright.

They earned a respectable 22 out of a possible 30, temporary judge Anton du Beke offering a stirling endorsement of them both.

The result placed Caroline and Johannes mid-leaderboard, in a week where Clara Amfo topped the chart after receiving two 10s and an overall score of 29.

As the highest score of the series so far, the result had an emotional Clara in tears as pro partner Aljaz Skorjanec told how proud he was.

Trailing just behind them were HRVY and Janette Manrara, and Bill Bailey and Oti Mabuse, who judge Craig Revel-Horwood recently admitted is his favourite to lift the Glitterball Trophy.
