Maslen: Strictly training painful

Scott Maslen says his Strictly Come Dancing training is tough going

Scott Maslen has admitted that training for Strictly Come Dancing has been a painful process.

The EastEnders star said professional dance partner Natalie Lowe is really putting him through his paces as he prepares to show off his moves on TV.

At the Inside Soap awards, he confessed: "It's extremely hard work. It's all the cliches. You see the shows and think 'yeah right'. But when you're in there doing six hours a day with a world champion and you haven't got an idea what you're doing and it's a whole new skill set... I'm having ups and downs but we're getting there and I'm enjoying the process, as painful as it can be."

The actor, who picked up the Sexiest Male gong at Monday's bash, detailed his injuries so far as tight hamstrings and sore knees.

"We're all over the place, she's testing me out," he added.

However, he denied that Australian Natalie has moved into his family home, as reports had suggested was on the cards

"Nat comes round our house quite a lot with me and my wife. We end up eating together because we're doing so much," he explained.

Ask colleagues and relatives for help with mundane errands while you focus on the long term financial future. If you don't protect your economic interests, nobody else will.More
