Coronation Street actress Kym Marsh and her Strictly Come Dancing partner Graziano Di Prima were interviewed by Rylan Clark on Friday’s instalment of It Takes Two ahead of their week seven performance. Kym recently faced Matt Goss in the dreaded dance-off which shook her confidence, but she told Rylan she “had a word” with herself last weekend to ensure she and Graziano were safe.

Rylan reminded Kym how judge Anton Du Beke told her she was “back on form” after being in the dance-off a previous week. 

“It felt like you’d lost your way a little bit, you self-admittedly said that on this show,” he added. 

“I know you had a bit of a confidence thing, did you feel that last Saturday?”

Kym replied: “Last Saturday I just went out and thought, ‘No I am having it, I am having it.’

“My mindset just changed and I had a little word with myself and said, ‘What are you doing? Just enjoy it, it’s a dance, enjoy the dance, enjoy being with Graziano.’

“And I did that, I really did and it was a great week for me, my best week I think so far.” 

Kym and Graziano danced the Rumba to Frozen by Madonna and they got their highest score of the series which was 34 points out of a possible 40.

They were given nines by Shirley Ballas and Anton which Graziano and Kym were thrilled about.

“It was a brilliant feeling knowing we had done the job we had set out to do, so we were thrilled to bits,” Kym eloquently said. 

Their Rumba has also been the highest-scoring one of the series which was a huge achievement for the pair. 

Graziano gushed: “You were brilliant and I am so proud of you.” 

Kym was flattered by his compliments before Rylan revealed this is the first year Graziano has made it through to week seven of the competition. 

Graziano said: “All of this is because of her, she is so busy and she gives me 150 per cent.” 

Rylan also discussed how Ellie Simmonds and Nikita Kuzmin are dancing the Charleston this weekend, which has been “the kiss of death this series as people have been going out left, right and centre” after performing it. 

He was referring to Kaye Adams, Jayde Adams and James Bye all being sent home from this year’s competition after performing the Charleston. 

Strictly finalist Joe Sugg, who is in a relationship with Dianne Buswell, addressed the Charleston on the latest instalment of Strictly Come Dancing: The Official Podcast. 

He told his co-host Kim Winston: “Since when has Charleston become the most dangerous dance of the series?”

“Three people have been out on the Charleston so far in this series.”

Hamza Yassin is the current favourite of winning this year’s series, with his odds being placed at 4/1.

Kym is the bookies’ favourite to be eliminated next, with her odds being at 3/1 by Paddy Power. 

Strictly Come Dancing continues on Saturday at 7pm on BBC One.
