'The Greatest Dancer' presenter said the show's team captain tried to teach him some steps, but she wasn't impressed with his moves..

Jordan is quoted by the Daily Star newspaper as saying: "I am afraid I could never do it. The trouble is people know me from Diversity and my street dancing and so they will expect me to do good.

"But the reality is ballroom is tough. Too tough for me. Oti gave me some lessons and tired to teach me just one thing - a hold.

"But after a while she told me I'm not very good. She said my posture was not right."

The 26-year-old is best known as the leader of dance troupe Diversity, who won the third series of 'Britain's Got Talent' in 2009.

Despite his experience, he feels that his years of street dancing made it "hard" for him to suddenly master a different style.

He said: "The problem is I have been doing street dance for so many years it is very hard to suddenly forget everything I know and so something new.

"It's like just because you can play basketball doesn't mean you are good at football."

On Saturday (23.02.19) Jordan and co-host Alesha Dixon will be fronting the finale of 'The Greatest Dancer', which will see the remaining contestants compete for the £50,000 cash money prize.

The four acts left to compete for the winning title are Oti's KLA and Ellie, Matthew Morrison's James and Oliver, and Cheryl's Harry and Eleiyah.

'The Greatest Dancer' final will air on BBC One, starting at 7.10pm.
