ZAlebs chatted with Top Billing presenter Jonathan Boynton-Lee will who would be showcasing his sexy moves alongside his partner, and professional dancer, Hayley Bennett- Freidin.
Jonathan, have you ever danced in your life?
(Laughs) I am not a dancer and that is the main reason I agreed to be a contestant of Strictly Come Dancing!
It looks like it going to be interesting and fun for you though!
It's going to be every entertaining and a lot of fun, I mean watching people who are not professional dancers should be interesting. I am learning and working hard during rehearsals.
Other than fun, what else can viewers expect to see from Jonathan?
I am willing to overcome the challenge that I don’t know much about dance! I will be doing my best and viewers will definitely enjoy the show.
Viewers got to know you better as the Top Billing presenter after you won their presenter search competition. How has it been so far?
It is very nice, It is a dream job.
What else are you currently working on?
I am currently shooting commercials; I'm also continuing my work with Top Billing and I have to rehearse everyday for Strictly Come Dancing. I am excited to be preparing for the Vodacom Durban July. I have a hectic schedule, I don’t even know how I manage!
