Strictly Come Dancing professional Aljaz Skorjanec is paired with entrepreneur Sara Davies for the BBC dancing competition. On Friday, Sara detailed to This Morning stand-in hosts Alison Hammond and Dermot O’Leary the gruelling sacrifice Aljaz offered to help her see her children more.
Dermot asked Sara, “What’s the training like, how intense is it?” to which she began to explain: “so the thing is, I’ve got two young kids.
“My boys are four and seven, and they really are struggling with the fact I’m away every weekend, they’re really struggling with it.
“He said to me on the Thursday he said, ‘What can I do to help’ and I said it would mean the world if just one day a week I could get to pick them up from school.
“Which means we’ll have to train early and finish at three, and so last week that first week he said we’ll do it every day, so every morning from five o’clock, you will know what a shock that is,” she said, pointing to Alison.
She laughed and interrupted: “And I bet you any money he goes to the school run, does he go to the school run?”
Agreeing with her, Sara said: “He goes to the school run, [and] oh my word the teachers think I am the coolest thing, there’s never been so many mums at pick up, I tell you.”
On Saturday, Sara and Aljaz performed the Cha Cha and was scored a total of 17, leaving them at the bottom of the leader board.
Alison asked Aljaz: “How proud of Sara was you on that first dance,” he replied: “Tremendously proud.
“From day one of rehearsals, I knew that you were going to be an amazing student because you are so focused, you listen to every single word I say.
“The one thing I was most impressed with was how in control you was with your nerves, with yourself because you’ve never really performed to that extent anywhere,” he said.
Sara continued: “That’s the thing, I didn’t understand it until I watched the show back on the Sunday, and most people who are “celebrities” are celebrities because they have been on stage.
“They can turn it on, I’m not I do business, so all I’ve ever known is sitting in that den being Sara Davies, not being someone else.

“So, I was fine, I was bringing it, I was giving everything, but what I can’t do is show off,” to which Alison interrupted: “But you’ve just got to do it, you’ve got to go into the zone.”
Alison also touched on the fact they were at the bottom of the leader board and said she believed they shouldn’t have been there.
“There’s only one way from now, we’re doing foxtrot, and I feel like so much more clam, I tell you what mind I thought ballroom was going to be easy,” Sara admitted.
Alison revealed that ballroom was Aljaz’s favourite, to which he replied: “I love it all, but ever since I was a little kid really I grew up really fast.
“I was about 12, 13, and I was the same height as I am now, and I always find it really uncomfortable wiggling my body around,” he explained.
Dermot asked Aljaz: “You choreograph all the dances, so why did you choose the cha-cha for the first dance?”
Sara jumped in a joked: “Yeah, why did you put me through that and have me stand on my own doing all the sassy look at me stuff.
“I always feel like a professional choosing the dance and the music, if you get critiqued for it, I much rather prefer to be responsible for as many aspects as possible.”
Strictly Come Dancing continues tonight at 6:45pm on BBC One.
