Louis: I'll spice show up for Craig

Louis Smith has joked that he may have to get saucier on Strictly Come Dancing to win over judge Craig Revel Horwood.

The gymnast failed to impress the icy judge with his Charleston last weekend - despite getting high praise from the rest of the panel on the BBC One show.

Asked on spin-off show It Takes Two how he could impress Craig, he said: "I don't know, he didn't tell us what I did wrong. Maybe I need to undo my top button... I don't know."

Louis confessed he hadn't been expecting such rave reviews from the other judges for his performance with dance pro Flavia Cacace.

"It was good, it was very different but I really enjoyed it. I wasn't expecting the comments at all," he admitted.

"I think it was because I felt I was acting and I thought, 'I'm not going to get great scores for this.' It felt like I was going really overboard."

Louis will be back this weekend for a "dance fusion" routine which mixes Rumba and Tango, as the remaining contestants fight it out for the coveted four places in the final.

Getting paid to exercise your imagination will lift your spirits. By the time you finish this assignment, you may be in better condition to pursue your primary goal. A brilliant idea for operating on a shoestring budget will come. At that point, nothing will stand between you and success. Stay calm and take things one step at a time.More
