Strictly Come Dancing performances are always a visual treat for the eyes thanks to the (mostly) slick choreography and the incredible costume design.
But what viewers are not privy to is the sound of the contestants conversing with each other throughout their performances.
Secret microphone conversations have revealed that as soon as Dave Arch and his band strike up the music the couples do not stop talking.
From shrieks of encouragement, singing along to the words and recounting the steps, the couples are very vocal during their routines.
A video of the recordings was posted to the official Strictly Instagram page to reveal what's really going on.
One clip sees Giovanni Pernice hilariously belting out the words to Cabaret during his performance with Michelle Visage.
But the Italian professional managed to pull himself together to then talk Michelle through their number step by step.
"Nice, relax. Go. Go. Slow," Giovanni told Michelle as he guided her round the dancefloor in Movie Week.
Similarly, Anton Du Beke was also heard doing his best to put partner Emma Barton at ease – but not before he had a joke with the studio audience.
"Groovy baby!" cried the Strictly veteran as he got into character as Austin Powers.
Anton continued to go 'method' as he complimented EastEnders actress Emma with a 'gorgeous Baby!' to calm her nerves mid-routine.
While Karim Zeroual and Amy Dowden were heard shrieking at each other and AJ Pritchard and Saffron Barker got very breathy during their Hunger Games inspired number.
The microphones even picked up audio from the shocking moment Katya Jones tumbled to the ground as she danced with Mike Bushell.
"Oooh!" cried Katya as she tripped over the confetti before crying out to a stunned Mike to "Carry on."
At the end of their raunchy Magic Mike routine, BBC Breakfast star Mike asked the Russian professional if she was OK.
Viewers saw the two embrace but what they didn't hear was an exhausted Katya telling Mike: "Well done for carrying on! Well done."
