    Strictly Come Dancing's Nigel Harman will occasionally text Katya Jones in the middle of the night when he's struggling to sleep.

    The celebrity contestant has admitted that his routine can sometimes stress him out to the point where he's up in the middle of the night. He even needs to do the routine in his head before he can go back to sleep.

    Nigel, 50, told the Press Association how he struggles to sleep on a Friday night because of the pressure surrounding Saturday night. He said that he gets around four hours good sleep but then he's forced awake.

    He added: "So basically, I [have] to lay there dancing through my dance a few times until my body goes, #Okay… you still remember it, it's okay' and then I go back to sleep."

    Katya added that Nigel sent her a text message a couple of times to confirm the routine so he can go back to sleep. But luckily, one thing that doesn't bother him in the night is the judges scores.

    Nigel said: "I don't have nightmares about the scoring, because that's [the judges] business. I can't influence that, I just dance."

    Last night the pair danced to Bruno Mars' Just The Way You Are and made quite the statement on the dancefloor. Fans have been loving the pair together ever since they made their performance.

    Katya recently praised her celebrity partner Nigel as she dubbed him the "perfect student". She said: "I’ve been blessed with all my partners in the past and again it is a very different experience. He’s really funny and he makes me laugh so much – he really does."

    The pair have been sailing through thanks to a mixture of public votes and the judges' scores. After their success last week Katya wrote on Instagram: "So grateful for your support, for all the lovely comments and appreciation.

    "We talk every week about what are we trying to deliver through our dance. We want you to turn on your tele on Saturday nights and be entertained, be left feeling something."

    She finished the statement with: "I am so lucky to have such a talented partner to create magic with for another week."
