Viscountess Emma Weymouth, 33, got candid about her Strictly Come Dancing 2019 journey so far and revealed she finds some elements of training “enraging”. The model will be performing the Cha Cha Cha with her dance partner Aljaz Skorjanec, 29, on the first live show tomorrow to a very befitting tune. Emma, who is married to heir of Longleat Estate Ceawlin Thynn, Viscount Weymouth, 45, admitted in her column in The Telegraph: “We practiced the steps of the Cha Cha Cha, our first dance, to, wait for it... She's a Lady by Tom Jones.” In response to the song choice, the star added: “I thought Aljaz was joking when he told me the song choice!

“The production team filmed our whole rehearsal for Saturday's show, including every little mistake and we answered questions at the end of the day about how we felt it was going.”
Addressing her progress with the Latin dance, Emma explained she finds getting the steps wrong “enraging”, but that she feels reassured by Aljaz’s extensive experience on the BBC show.
She continued: “It's a tricky dance to master, Aljaz is in his seventh year on Strictly and far better at dealing with things going wrong on the dance floor than I am.
