Strictly Come Dancing contestant Natalie Gumede was forced to clean the dance studio floors today after messing up in rehearsals! Well, that's what this photo looks like anyway!

The former Coronation Street actress is starring in the new series of the BBC dance competition and it seems like the professionals take it very seriously when their celebrity partners get their moves wrong.

Natalie's dance partner Artem Chigvintsev put her through her paces today (3 October), as the pair tackled the waltz.

During rehearsals, Artem posted a picture on Twitter, showing Natalie on all fours and polishing the laminate studio floor. And she didn't look too happy about it!

He captioned the snap: "This is what happens when you don't get it right @NatalieGumede #waltz."

Did he really make her clean the floor?! Or was she mopping up something she spilled?!

Whatever it was, Natalie shouldn't feel too down about her gruelling rehearsals, since she admitted last month that being on Strictly is all about learning.

Speaking on ITV's Daybreak, she said: "I've had to unlearn everything I've known so far. It's come as a shock the amount of technique I had to go through but I'm really happy to do that. That's what I'm here for - to learn."

We're sure after her floor cleaning (if that's what happened), Natalie will be making even more of an effort to not put a step wrong in the waltz this weekend!
