Hairy Biker Dave gets polished up
Friday 18th October 2013, 1:20PM BST.
Hairy Biker Dave Myers has been taken to a beauty salon to give him a more polished performance on this weekend’s Strictly Come Dancing.
The hirsute star was given a touch of grooming in preparation for a waltz on this weekend’s show with a trim and some attention to his nails.
Last week he found himself at the bottom of the leaderboard on the BBC One show after he failed to impress the judging panel but he is clearly proving a hit with viewers who ensured he was not in the dance-off.
Viewers will see him visit a salon on Saturday’s programme (October 19) for a full-on Strictly-fication with a blow-dry, manicure and pedicure.
His professional partner Karen Hauer tells him: “We are here because in the waltz you need the smoothness and the class. We are here to give you a strictly grooming session. I think it’s definitely going to help your dancing.”
Dave jokes: “You don’t do this to me – you just beat me and bite me.”
Karen is also horrified when she sees the state of his feet, and with a blackened toenail, he may be likely to lose a nail as a result of the hours on the dancefloor.
He says: “My feet are in such a bad state I wouldn’t wish these trotters on anyone.”
The pair will be dancing to The Eagles song Take It To The Limit when they perform tomorrow.
