    Strictly Come Dancing professional Nancy Xu was left red-faced after confessing to being "told off" by a BBC choreographer behind the scenes.

    The star appeared on spin-off show It Takes Two on Thursday (December 1) alongside her celebrity partner, Coronation Street actor Will Mellor.

    As they discussed their scoreboard-topping Charleston, Will confessed that there had been a bit of a spat over their partnership in rehearsals.

    Host Janette Manrara questioned Will: "Nancy said last week that even she struggled, and she’s a pro dancer doing this dance. How hard was it for you?”

    A chuckling Will responded: "There were a few moments where Jenny, the choreographer, went, 'Just watch what Will’s doing!'

    "I was like, 'Hey!' So I told Nancy 'I'll film it and I’ll show you where you’re going wrong, Nancy.' Because usually she’s got the whip out going, 'Do it again!'

    "It's true, though isn’t it? She was getting angry with herself and I was saying the shoe’s on the other foot."

    Later in the segment, Will shared his health worries as he confessed his knees are getting old – and might not be up to the task of dancing.

    Sharing a snap of the star wearing bandages around his joints, Will explained: "They're knackered, aren't they? I'm getting on, I shouldn't be doing what I'm doing.

    "I was always a bit afraid I'd get through the competition with my knees the way they are, from old football injuries and operations and stuff.

    "But the physio team have really looked after me and I've protected them as much as I could, and I've done all right and they're holding up."
