Presenting the naughtiest pro-dancer on Strictly Come Dancing and Strictly: It Takes Two, the always entertaining - and extremely handsome - Aljaž Skorjanec!

As much as I love the Saturday main show, Strictly Come Dancing, Zoe Ball's weekday "variety show" Strictly: It Takes Two is my favourite. Full of gossip, training videos, interviews, behind the scenes wonder, music, costumes, celebrities & pro-dancers, Ian Waite's Wand, choreography, Vicky Gill, comedy, sketches, and general nincompoopery, It Takes Two is only better when Aljaž Skorjanec is on.
Cheeky and charming, the adorable Aljaž often has Zoe, Gemma (Atkinson - his brilliant celebrity partner this year), the studio audience and crew, in high spirits and laughing along with him and his antics.
This year, my favourite running gag from ITT is Aljaž's reaction to the screen caption that runs at the start of his & Gemma's interviews. Usually, the captions are just a play on the celebs' and pro-dancers' names, and are not really noticed by them as they chat with Zoe. This year, however, Aljaž has begun to take note of the captions, and got a surprise when last week's told him to "Stop reading this and pay attention!", and yesterday's instructed him to "Make a funny face for us".

I just hope the ITT crew continue with the captions!
