Local residents Paul and Natasha became one of the ten couples to enter the BBC's Strictly Dance Fever house after securing a place amongst the finalists with their fantastic Lindy Hopping.

UK and World Champion in his field, Paul is better known around Chiswick for his dog walking business and has been a loyal carer of Chiswick's canine community for over 12 years.  He has also foiled the notorious 'boys on bikes' on numerous occasions whilst on his Bedford Park beat. 

Natasha and Paul have run dance classes locally and given displays at the Bedford Park Festival.

Over the remaining eight weeks of the show, the 10 dance couples who survived the auditions will live together and be taught a new dance style every week by the Strictly Dance Fever dance coaches.

During the live shows, hosted by Graham Norton, the judges will dispense their points and criticism making up 50% of the final score while the viewers at home will have their say and make up the other 50% voting by phone and text to decide which couple has got what it takes to master all the dance moves and come out on top as the Strictly Dance Fever Champions.

To see Paul and Natasha doing their thing, tune into ITV on Saturday night at 7.30pm.  Details on how to vote will be given throughout the show.
