Of their friendship, Tony shared: "We've had two months together now. She's been training me and the routines she's putting on are incredible. And sometimes when I miss a step, sometimes she's a little bit over critical and I just want to have a good time as well.

"So I think it's a balance between maybe letting me make a mistake and enjoying myself a little bit at times… I'm not an expert in this field."
