anj Singh has revealed "Strictly Come Dancing" has given him anxiety.

The 39 year-old doctor and television presenter - who is paired with Janette Manrana on the BBC ballroom competition - admitted while he gets nervous it isn't "normally" this bad, but the "pressure" of the show is making it worse.

Appearing on "This Morning" on Thursday (01.11.18), the star - who struggled with his performance last week - said: "The one thing I've found during my "Strictly" process so far is that I don't normally get anxiety - as it were.

"If I do get anxious, it's nerves, it's manageable. But definitely, as the pressure has been mounting and you have a lot to do in a short space of time - I have had moments where I've really started to feel it."

The star - who currently appears on the daytime show as a resident doctor - admitted that he's had to put his own medical advice "into practice" and learn how to deal with anxiety in the same way he would advise people to do on the show.

However, Ranj revealed his "incredible" dance partner has been super supportive by encouraging him to be strong and stay calm because she knows how much he's loving the experience.

Janette, 34, added: "I just keep reminding him that he has wanted to be part of "Strictly" for so long. It's his favorite TV show ... and he's finally doing it so he can't take a second of it for granted or get upset with himself."
