Strictly Come Dancing’s Joe Sugg is sending fans secret messages by peppering his routines with moves from video game Fortnite.

The YouTube sensation admitted being “sneaky” by including the victory dances in the BBC ballroom.

He was asked by The One Show host Angela Scanlon during Friday night’s show: “You’re determined to put sneaky little moves in there, aren’t you, from Fortnite?”

The 27-year-old replied: “Yes. It’s a very popular game at the moment. All the kids play it.

“It’s a video game, and I thought ‘I’ve got a large, young audience, let’s whack that in there’.”

She even gave the internet prankster a taste of his own medicine by creeping up behind him while he was eating his lunch during training and stroking his neck in a video shared to social media.

Clearly spooked, Joe turned around in shock before trying to save face by saying: “I’m fine. I’m just trying to finish my food.”

The vlogger was praised by the Strictly judges for his jive to Take On Me by A-ha in the first live week of the series.
