STRICTLY Come Dancing stars have been warned they shouldn't sign up to the show if they have no dance training.

Professional dancer James Jordan, 45, insisted that contestants without dance experience will be booted off the show in the first.

He pointing out that all the people who have gone so far are "non-dancers" after TV presenter Les Dennis and BBC radio DJ Nikita Kanda were knocked out of the competition.

While reality star and documentary maker Zara McDermott found herself in the bottom two at the weekend.

Speaking about Nikita's exit on Saturday, James said: "We had Nikita [Kanda] doing the jive – I'm going to reiterate it, don’t do Strictly unless you’ve done dance training.

"Because that is what you look like, that is what a non-dancer is supposed to look like.

"It just shows you, it makes a massive difference."

He praised Nikita's commitment, saying: "She can hold her head high, she improved, she's up against people who are trained dancers.
