Strictly Come Dancing's Jason Bell is taking Movie Week very seriously as he prepares for his Star Wars-themed dance. The NFL star will be taking inspiration from a galaxy far, far away for his Paso Doble with professional dancer Luba Mushtuk this weekend. And although he is still very much the student in their partnership, there are a few things he's had to teach Luba about lightsabers.

"He's taking it really seriously.
You do that, you don't do this," she added, making lightsaber swooshing gestures with her hands. "It was teamwork, lightsaber work." "You teach me how to dance, I'll teach you how to Star Wars," interjected Jason. Guy Levy BBC On his passion for Star Wars, Jason said: "This is how I grew up. This is right up my alley. I love this. It brings me back to my childhood, so this is going to be amazing." "Once he had that lightsaber in the beginning of the routine, he became a child all over again," added Luba.
