Sharing a photo on Twitter, Jake said: "Costume fitting for our Jive went well today @JManrara."

Meanwhile, Janette said: "Amazing day with @mrjakedwood! Really having a blast with our Jive! Haha! #HisNameIsJakePresley."

Wearing a white shirt and black leather jacket, Jake threw on an Elvis wig complete with sideburns and rocked some large aviator sunglasses. Perfecting his look, Jake attempted to pull of Elvis' curled lip pose!

With Elvis as inspiration, will Jake unveil even more hip action on the dance floor on Saturday night?!
