England World Cup-winner Ben Cohen has survived the Strictly Come Dancing chop for another week but admits he has essentially been "dry-humping" his partner in rehearsals.

Cohen received a score of 28 at the weekend for his rendition of 'Make You Feel My Love' with his partner Kristina and despite the intimate nature of their dances, he insists his wife finds it amusing.

"Our real life partners have to be really understanding. I had a moment in training the other week," Cohen told the Mirror. "There was a moment where I was dry humping my dance partner in a kind of dance move and as we were rehearsing my wife walked in.

"It was a bit awkward. My wife was like 'I think I will come back in a minute'. It is a bit challenging but she is a good girl and she understands."

And Cohen is delighted with his partner, Kristina: "We're similar in that we both have a high work ethic, so we put in long working days. She's a great teacher and breaks down every dance to make it idiot proof. It's a crash course and it's helping. It's not for lack of me wanting to learn how to dance!"
