Strictly Come Dancing duo Tyler West and Dianne Buswell boasted that they only started rehearsing for their chart-topping Charleston three days before the live show.
During Wednesday’s visit to the BBC studios, Janette Manrara welcomed the fan-favourite couple onto the show to talk about their successful routine which awarded them the first 10 of the series.
On the show, the TV presenter revealed he ran the London Marathon the previous weekend which left him struggling to move after completing the 26-mile trek.

This meant that the pair couldn’t train for their routine until Wednesday in order to give the TV star time to recover from the heart racing workout.
But that didn’t stop the pair from pulling out all the stops on Saturday night, as the fiery redhead revealed they worked non-stop in the days leading up to the live show.
Speaking to the It Takes Two host, Dianne explained: “It was about Wednesday night because it was a very slow start to the week.
“Usually, by Monday I'm like, ‘We need to have the dance where we can do it from start to finish’ but there was nothing happening on the Monday or the Tuesday to be honest.
“On Wednesday I was starting to get a little bit hot and sweaty – I was like, ‘Oh this isn’t going well’.”
It was at this point that Tyler confessed that the pro dancer pulled a nervous face as she confessed “We’re not going to be able to do it”.
But that didn't stop the pair from giving the fun-filled performance their all, as they went out and smashed their hilarious routine which soared them to the top of the leaderboard.
Not only that, but the dynamic duo went on to receive the first 10 of the series from head judge Shirely Ballas.
