Dance Dance Dance star Chloe Gill, wife of farmer JB Gill, has shared her excitement about performing Fleur East's hit single Sax. The professional dancer will take to the stage on Sunday night's episode and the pressure is on – Fleur is Chloe's best friend! The pair met ten years ago when they first auditioned for a girl band.
Writing in her new HELLO! Online blog, Chloe revealed: "When I found out I was to perform Fleur East's Sax as my solo this week, I was SO excited! Not only is it a great, feel good song but it also happens to be my best friend's first, hit single! Fleur and I have been friends for the last 10 years. Can you believe we met at a girl band audition?! I remember saying to her, 'I only want to get into this band if you're in it as I think we will be great friends!' From that day, we were inseparable and have been best friends since! She was a bridesmaid at my wedding and is my son Ace's godmother."

Chloe got a special surprise from her close pal during rehearsals this week. She wrote: "I'd only just finished learning the routine in rehearsals this week, when who should float in but Fleur herself! The cunning producers at ITV had obviously kept it a tight secret from me and I was so shocked to see her! The pressure felt immediately worse! I think her words were, 'Yep, that's needs work!' Great! It honestly was so great to have her watch my progress this week and hear her tips on how to get the best marks possible!! Hopefully the judges agree because I know she's expecting TOP marks!"
Chloe, who has a two-year-old son Ace with her husband, has been thoroughly enjoying her time on the show. But it hasn't been without difficulties. The doting mum admitted that juggling motherhood with her dance schedule has been tough. "Any parent will know that going from being a full time mum to full time work is tough," she wrote. "Trying to juggle being a wife, an attentive mother to Ace (he's as demanding as his father!), running our working farm and putting in as many hours as possible in rehearsals has been full on but, surprisingly doable."

She added: "I have tried to keep Ace's routine as normal as possible but it's not been easy as I'm his full time carer. It broke my heart the other day, when he said 'Mummy, just no more rehearsals, please'. You can't help but feel guilty and we owe a huge debt to our family for their support!"
