STRICTLY Come Dancing’s Jody Cundy is far from resting on his laurels ahead of the latest series.
Cundy, a Paralympic cyclist and former swimmer, was announced as part of the latest Strictly line-up earlier this month.
With the start date edging closer and closer, Cundy has now updated fans on his preparation ahead of taking to the dance floor.
As well as his dance lessons, Jody Cundy is also training for the 2024 Paris Summer Paralympics.
He wrote on Instagram: “Slowly but surely getting back into training, the journey to Paris has started.
“Although there’s a spot of dancing to do before then with hopefully a stop off in Blackpool.
“… but only if I get any good at it!”
A fan asked how Cundy intended to balance his commitments.
He replied: “Good question. Got some ideas, but certainly going to be difficult fitting in the hours around the dancing.
“Going to be a more maintenance block than anything.”
Other stars taking part in Strictly 2023 include actress Amanda Abbington, newsreader Angela Rippon and comic actor Les Dennis.
