Jordan wanted her show partner to be a little lighter on his feet for tonight’s Strictly Come Dancing so tried to show him what it would be like being almost weightless underwater. The pair – performing a waltz to I Will Always Love You – headed to Sea Life to try out their moves, alongside the marine life.
