The countdown is on to the live shows of Strictly Come Dancing and some of the celebrities have been filmed in rehearsals!

We've been given a sneak peek of former TOWIE star Mark Wright, who is partnered with professional dancer Karen Hauer.

In the video, we see Heart FM host Mark taking instructions from Karen and practising those all important hip movements. Even though it's early stages, Mark makes one thing clear - he's a trier!

Check Mark out in action below:

Mark also confesses in another video: "If I was going to conquer one type of dance it would be Latin because I like the old swing of the hips and it's quite sexy, but we'll see if I can do that. At the moment I'm a bit stiff but that's what I'm getting taught for."

And what is Mark's favourite song to dance to? Candi Staton's 'Young Hearts Run Free'.

"It's mine and my mum's favourite party tune," he says. "As soon as it comes on, wherever we are on the dance floor, we just look at each other and we're in! Both of us can't dance, both of us look horrific but we love the tune and you just feel it."
