  • Quotes

    • Jill (on staying in touch with her dance partner): Hopefully me and my boyfriend will meet up with Darren and Lilia really soon. They're going to come and see Chicago so that's really nice.

    • Jill: Every Saturday was like a little adventure. You never knew what to expect. One of my favourite parts was choosing the costumes — we were given designs at the start and you could adapt them to what you thought would suit you. It was brilliant — like being in a sweet shop!

    • Jill: The first four weeks before the programme started were probably the least intense, because we only had one dance — we learned a few other bits and bobs but there was just the Waltz to concentrate on and it was all new. It was really when the show started that the pressure kicked in. We trained for 25 hours a week once the show had started.
