Hot on the heels of his "Strictly Come Dancing" triumph, internationally renowned England cricketer Darren Gough takes a light-hearted look at the world of dance and tells the story of how he came to exchange his cricket whites for dancing shoes.
Before taking part in the hugely successful TV show Darren's only experience of dance was break-dancing on street corners in Barnsley, but with the guidance of professional dancer Lilia Kopylova he was soon mastering a whole range of moves and sweeping his way into the nation's affections -- 3 million people voted for him in the series final.
In "Dazzler on the Dance Floor -- Strictly for Fun", he and Lilia demonstrate various dances in accessible 'how to' steps and recall their time together on the show, with entertaining anecdotes about their rivals as well as of Darren's journey from reluctant dancer to becoming the 'James Bond of the Dance Floor'.
