Despite his enthusiasm for his teacher, Bill is modest about his ability at the activity.

He said: 'I can see the appeal of the foxtrot, the tango, the rhumba, the formal nature of it all, the practised moved, the precision, but it's not really me.'

A source has since defended Bill's inclusion in the dance show to the Mirror, saying that he had only two lessons 40 years ago.

The insider told the newspaper: 'If he was joining Strictly straight after having had ballroom lessons as a teenager, or he had a professional ballroom background, it would have been very different.

'There is no hard and fast rule – it's all on a case by case basis.'
