Oh, hi Ben Cohen! The rugby fittie arrived in Blackpool on Friday and looked typically FIT in his casual jeans and jumper combo.

Ben, 35, has travelled to Blackpool in readiness for Saturday night's Strictly Come Dancing, where the celebs will prance around the town's famous Tower Ballroom.

Ben's in Blackpool for this weekend's Strictly Come Dancing.

Ben and dance partner Kristina Rihanoff will be performing the American Smooth and a Viennese Waltz, which is kind of disappointing because ballroom dances leave little room for revealing costumes.


Oh sorry, rant over.

Erm, anyway... former England rugby star Ben was joined by fellow Strictly Come Dancing gents Mark Benton and pro dancer Robin Windsor on Friday.

Ben admitted performing at the famous ballroom for the hit BBC1 show was making him extra nervous, but said: "I am really looking forward to the weekend."

We reckon he's got nothing to worry about though, as he got his highest score last week thanks to a (topless) pasadoble. Just sayin'.

Meanwhile Abbey Clancy revealed her nerves ahead of the show. She tweeted: "Oh god Blackpool here we come not sure I'm ready !! #killerquickstep x"

We can't wait to watch!
