Catherine Tyldesley almost vomited on Strictly Come Dancing pro

Catherine Tyldesley almost threw up on her ‘Strictly Come Dancing’ partner.
The former ‘Coronation Street’ star has been paired with up with pro Johannes Radebe for the new series of the BBC Latin and ballroom show, and she admitted their tough training sessions pushed her so hard she nearly vomited all over him.
In a video posted to Instagram, she laughed: "Do we really want to talk about what happened? It’s all going to be okay… I wasn’t sick. I didn’t vomit on you yet… I retched."
However the 35-year-old actress is still optimistic, pointing out there were only a couple of days into rehearsals.
She added: "It’s day two, nobody panic. I am going to have a strong coffee. Tomorrow is a better day."
Meanwhile, Catherine previously admitted her dance teacher was "very surprised" to find out she’d signed up for ‘Strictly’ after she used to do her best to "avoid" her classes at drama school.
She said: "I am a huge fan of the show. I’ve tried to watch it as much as I can since the first show. But I also can’t dance.
"I went to drama school but I never had the confidence to take part in the dance classes – often I’d avoid them completely. I was a lot bigger than I am now and I just didn’t enjoy it!
"My old dance teacher was very surprised when she heard I was doing this! I want to prove to myself I can do it. I want to learn a new skill."
Despite being apprehensive about the dancing, Catherine admitted she was encouraged by fellow soap stars like Tina O’Brien and Gemma Atkinson, who also took on the challenge without much experience.
She said: "They weren’t really dancers before they started either but they both said it was amazing.
"Lisa Riley was the same. They said if you are ever given the opportunity to do ‘Strictly’, I should go for it. So I knew I’d made the right decision."
