Strictly’s Hamza reveals he’s already lost a STONE after brutal 9 hours a day training sessions | The Sun

STRICTLY'S Hamza Yassin has revealed he’s already lost a STONE after brutal nine hours a day training sessions.

The wildlife cameraman and presenter is partnered with Jowita Przystal on Strictly and have worked hard on their three routines so far.

The couple are putting in the hours of practice, and now Hamza, 32, has revealed how the long training sessions have already seen him lose a significant amount of weight.

He told BBC Radio Scotland: "I've lost a lot of weight already, around 6.5kg [one stone], which is unheard of really.

"But if you're training nine hours a day you kind of get that. It's hard. Everything just aches and aches.

"With the Foxtrot my knees ached, then it was my knees and my lower back for the Jive, and this week it's a hard dance [the Salsa]."

He continued: "These guys [the pros] have been doing it for 12-15 years and we have to come to their standards in four days.

"We're never going to get to their standards, but we still have to learn the basics and do a show and perform and deliver it on a Saturday. It's kind of crazy, but I'm absolutely enjoying it."

Hamza also opened up about how Jowita has to "pull out all the stops" to get his energy back up when he starts flagging on a daily basis during rehearsals.

He said: "It does get tough sometimes. Jowita's fitness levels are out of this world, but by about three or four o'clock I'm flagging, so she has to pull out all the stops to bring my energy back up again.

"It's a little bit like school. You're stuck in a studio listening to the same song a million times and you're trying to do the steps and everything.

"But it's enjoyable, because if you have a good partner then time flies. Some days we look at the clock and we haven't even eaten lunch and I say, 'Wow, now I understand why I'm hungry.'

"But I'm loving every moment of it with Jowita. She's a really, really good teacher, and she's understanding and caring."
