As the evening draws in the 3 of us know what is about to happen. Finally, looking slightly nervous, Lauren & Adam step onto the dance floor. While the guests gather to watch the first dance; Lauren and Adam’s months of secret dance lessons and their surprise is finally revealed. Much as I have watched a fair few first dances I have to say I was speechless at this… This was a scene from Strictly come dancing, lifts spins and the final lift…..wow.
