Strictly Come Dancing star Chris Ramsey will be feeling the pressure when he takes to the dance floor with partner Karen Hauer on Saturday. The songs and dances for this weekend's Halloween special have just been unveiled – and all eyes are on the couple following the announcement they will be dancing the Samba to Everybody (Backstreet's Back) by the Backstreet Boys. Surprisingly, this will be the first time music by the boyband has been featured on the show – despite the fact that the quintet performed the classic song on the results show last year. Speaking on It Takes Two to host Rylan Clark-Neal this week, Chris joked about the pressure of performing to such an iconic track. "There are a lot of people our age who rely on me to nail this… I have to do it justice!" he said.
