"I like party dancing, which I thought that might help but actually it doesn't. I'm getting fitter and stronger but it's remembering the steps that's hard," he said. "Janette's [Manrara - Ranj's dance partner] incredible, she gets me and it's a perfect partnership."

The medical professional further explained: "I've started to get bad anxiety during the week because of the adrenaline, which has been interfering with the learning. So, Janette gives me pep talks everyday."

He doesn't let his nerves completely take over though, because Ranj is also thriving off the show's weekly themes. This weekend will witness him and Janette taking part in a Halloween inspired Jive to the spooky track 'Monster Mash'.

"It's just a great time of year. I have to go to at least one Halloween fancy dress party each year," he noted. "I've started face painting too and using gold leaf, glitter and rhinestones. It usually takes me about four hours to get ready."
