Benton brushes up on streetdance

Strictly Come Dancing star Mark Benton is swapping Waterloo Road for "street" - as he brushes up his breakdance skills.

The actor, who appears in the school drama, had a hip hop dance session in preparation for this weekend's show, along with his professional partner Iveta Lukosiute.

The pair are dancing a cha cha to MC Hammer's hit U Can't Touch This on the latest live show on Saturday night and v isited professional break dancer Vitamin for some tuition.

Benton, who impressed his teacher, said: " I think this is really going to help us with our little street sections of our dance. When Vitamin does it, it looks really cool and you get the feel of it more and hopefully we can take a lot of that into Saturday."
