Strictly Come Dancing star Ugo Monye recently moved in right by Tilly Ramsay and said they’ve taken a different approach to staying in touch rather than the standard phone call.
Last night saw the stars return for Movie Week, with some incredible themed routines as well as the first 10s of the series.
But before the madness of the latest batch of performances, contestant Ugo, 38, spoke out on how he’s been getting on so far.
Speaking to VELOXNEWS.co.uk, he told us the hilarious method he’s come up with for keeping up with fellow contestant Tilly, 19 as they continue to stick in bubbles with their professional partners.
He said: ‘[We speak] on WhatsApp groups and I guess last year was the same with Covid…
‘You couldn’t really spent time together and you’re kind of isolated in your bubbles.’
He added: ‘I’ve moved in very close to where Tilly is, and I actually bought Tilly and I walkie talkies last week.
‘Because ringing each other on the phone, that’s so old fashioned!
The pair watched their episode of Strictly back together last week, giving their verdicts through the walkie talkies between their places.
Ugo added: ‘That was really fun! I love Tilly she’s a great girl, so much fun, she’s full of energy and life and she’s very good company.’
We think that sounds like a great way to stay entertained.
Last night, Ugo performed a Couple’s Choice with Oti Mabuse to You’re Welcome by Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson, from Moana.
His partner Oti also shared how excited his two young daughters, Ruby and Phoenix, were to watch him perform to their favourite film.
On choosing the song, Oti explained: ‘It’s a team effort, between us and production and Ugo really, really loves the movie because of his daughters and it’s something that he’s shared with his family.
‘I think also our relationship is more like Maui and Moana anyway! This weekend is about having fun, everybody’s upping it up a bit.
‘More than that, it’s really about showing the personality, showing the character of the dance.’
Strictly Come Dancing: The Results airs tonight at 7.10pm on BBC One.
