Johnson played Mark "Dodger" Savage in the Channel 4 soap from 2011 to 2015.

He has also starred in musicals including Wicked and Legally Blonde.

He said: "I first danced at college when I was 18. That was the first time I'd ever worn a pair of tights or a dance belt! I worked hard at it but it's safe to say when I graduated all my dance gear went in a bag in the loft and hasn't been seen since!"

The actor also revealed he is slightly terrified of the Strictly judges too.

He explained: "I am terrified of them all! I get judged every day of my life as an actor so I am used to it, but I hate not being able to do something and they are going to be the ones to tell me - in front of millions!

"I do like a bit of tough love though so I will take it and deal with it... I hope."
