Strictly Come Dancing fans don’t have long to wait before the new crop of celebrities takes to the floor and meets their professional partners. Although this year’s line-up has now been confirmed, former Strictly pro Vincent Simone has revealed the dance partner he would love to teach in an exclusive interview with Express.co.uk.

The Ballroom and Latin dancer said: “I would like to do a Tango with the Queen she’s the perfect height for me.  

“There’s a basic step called the Serida and I’m sure she could do that so if I ever get the chance to put my hands on her that’s the first thing I would do, a Tango. 

“I always say to people, ‘If you had three minutes left in your life what would you do?’

“You would Tango so that’s what I would do with the Queen.”

Vincent is making his return to the stage with his new show Tango Passions.

The Latin sensation made Strictly viewers fall in love with the Argentine Tango when he and Flavia Cacace performed it for the first time on the show. 

After teaming up with other Strictly pros and putting on numerous shows, Vincent has returned to his passion – Tango. 

Explaining why fans should come along, he said: “The dance itself is already the ticket of the price because when you see live Argentine Tango I mean it’s so precise. 

“You can either miss like a kick and you’ll just kick your dance partner so the precision of this dance at a certain speed you need to have skills, you need to have years of practice.

“But for me, the most important thing is to have a story throughout the show.

“People are going to live this beautiful story it will be like watching a movie, but live in three dimensions and it’s going to be full of emotions.”

“I want people to laugh or people to be in tears,” he continued.

“All these emotions that we feel on stage they’re going to be translated into the audience so it would be a very good experience for them.”

Vincent joined Strictly in 2006 before leaving six years later. 

Opening up on why he decided to step away, the Ballroom and Latin star admitted he was offered an “unbelievable opportunity”.

He said: “Well, I loved every single minute of being on Strictly.

“I was lucky enough that this big West End producer came and offered myself and Flavia, one of the theatres in the middle of London and we just took the opportunity, to be honest.

“I mean, we’d never done theatre before that, we just wanted to take a challenge. 

“If you’re the top of the class in what you do, you always want to try different things.”

“It was just unbelievable to have a live audience and come up with this beautiful, amazing West End show and take it on tour,” he added.

Strictly Come Dancing will return to BBC One in September.
