Strictly Come Dancing star JJ Chalmers is a former royal marine, as well as Invictus Games medallist, so surely he shouldn’t find training for the dancing show too gruelling a task.

This isn’t to say that he will find the contest a piece of cake either, for on Saturday he scored modestly coming in joint second bottom with his partner Amy Dowden.

However, serving time in Afghanistan did give him some advantage, aside from fitness, which was that he was already given a head start on one particular dance.

Speaking to the Radio Times, the star revealed that in 2011 he had help learning the waltz for his brother’s wedding from fellow marine and former semi-professional dancer Cassidy Little.

He said: “Basically I said, ‘Mate, any chance in this downtime you can teach me how to Waltz because it would be amazing if I could come back and impress my girlfriend, my now-wife, with these out-of-nowhere dance moves.'”

Clearly a very focused and sporty man, who puts his all into everything, it is thankful that JJ has a beautiful home and haven to relax in and rest his muscles.

The star lives with wife Kornelia and their two young children.

Let’s have a look inside his home…

First up is the star's laundry room which, while it may not be a feat of interior design, is 100 per cent relatable to anyone with a young family, proving celebs are just like the rest of us!

Much more stylish is the athlete's bathroom, which has beautifully tiled walls, both navy and cream, as well as taupe wall paint.

There is a slate grey cabinet with a cream sink atop, a fancy metal hanging light fixture and a sunken bath, complete with a geometrically patterned shower curtain.

The star's dining room is decorated with a very neutral colour scheme, with light grey walls, white doors and a wooden floor.

There is a large industrial style long wooden dining table, surrounded by white chairs.

In the corner, by the window, we can see that the family have a large blue arm chair with cosy woven blankets atop.

The family also have a large leafy garden, with plenty of lawn for the kids to run around on.

As the nation enters into a second lockdown this is of course one of the biggest assets a home can have.

We can also see that the family has an allotment of sorts, where they pick their own radishes, as well as an adorable pink Wendy house for the children!
