Strictly Come Dancing star Gorka Marquez has branded Helen Skelton "very cheeky" after revealing the pair had a "difficult week" of training.

The dance partners appeared on Lorraine on Friday (September 30) and confirmed they'd had a tough time training for their Cha Cha Cha routine this weekend.

Deeming Helen "very cheeky", Gorka, 32, also revealed the pair had missed a day of training and only had three days to learn their new routine.

Of Helen, Gorka said: "I think she's very cheeky and very sassy when she wants.

"Right now, I'm very happy. I think we're in a good place.

"It's been a difficult week because we had a terrible Tuesday and we missed a day… we only had three days to rehearse so it was very compact but we're at a good point right now."

Helen and Gorka scored an impressive 26 out of 40 for their first live performance last weekend.

The former Blue Peter presenter recently revealed she was left red-faced during a dress rehearsal after tripping over her dress.

On the ITV programme, Helen also revealed she had been "messaging" Gorka's partner and former Strictly Come Dancing star Gemma Atkinson for "tips" on dealing with her fiancé.

Helen said: "[Gemma] messages me and tells me 'just tell him this, tell him that' and I'm like 'thank god'.

"She's done the show so she gets it."

Gorka added: "I think she knows how hard it is and also, she knows how hard I can be sometimes and how difficult I can be being so picky with everything.

"So, she's a good person to get tips from."

Strictly Come Dancing continues on Saturday (October 1) on BBC One.
