Kelvin captioned the post: “Little Milo has been helping me with rehearsals for this weekend’s #MarryPoppinsReturns Charleston!

“This soundtrack and this song especially has been on a loop in our house for the last few months since taking Marnie to the cinema (her first cinement trip) to watch it.

“So I’ll be doing my best and making sure I don’t dissapoint!

“I’m absolutely LOVING this #strictly experience I feel so lucky. @bbcstrictly.”

Friends and fans rushed to comment on the video.

Presenter Richard Arnold wrote: “You’re doing BRILLIANTLY mate.”

One fan posted: “That’s so cute.”
