It’s been a real challenge

The five amateurs also include Reverend Richard Coles and his mentor David Baddiel.

Rev Richard, who appeared on Strictly Come Dancing in 2017, previously revealed he avoided swearing during his routine.

The parish priest was once told off to swearing on TV by the church – and didn’t want a repeat.
