EastEnders star Jake Wood has revealed that he is completely out of his comfort zone on Strictly Come Dancing.

According to Digital Spy, he explained: "I tend not to even dance at a party but I do sometimes dance at home when I'm mucking about with the kids."

However, the actor said that he is not nervous about getting the judges' feedback on his performances.

He said: "They're always positive and any criticism is usually constructive and it's all for our benefit. I'll take any criticism on board and work with it."

Wood, best known for playing Max Branning on EastEnders, added that he is looking forward to getting a sequinned, fake-tanned Strictly makeover.

"Bring it on!" he said. "No, seriously, I'm up for it all. I've signed up now and it's part and parcel of the show, isn't it?"
