Blackpool Week on ‘Strictly Come Dancing’ is always a cause for celebration when it rolls around each year, but this weekend will be even more of a party, as two of this year’s contestants will reach an important milestone.

Both Greg Rutherford and Ore Oduba celebrate turning 30 today (17 November), but while they’ll both be on a bus to Blackpool on the big day, it seems they’re keen to blow off steam after the live show this weekend.

We couldn’t be more jealous of Ore and Greg, getting to spend their 30th birthday celebrations on a night out with Bruno Tonioli and Ed Balls.

Still, it seems Ed might have to bow out of the party early, as he’s revealed professional partner Katya Jones has got him on a tight leash.

He told The Mirror: My days of two hours’ sleep in Blackpool are long gone.

“Katya would absolutely not approve, she thinks we should be calling it an early night at 11 o’clock and she thinks Ovaltine is a better nightcap than anything else.”

See how the remaining seven ‘Strictly’ couples get on in Saturday’s (19 November) show, live from Blackpool Tower, from 6.55pm on BBC One.
