Joe Sugg has apologised to "Strictly Come Dancing" judge Darcey Bussell for counting his steps.

The YouTube star is paired with pro Dianne Buswell on the BBC ballroom competition, and their Samba - set to Hanson's "MMMBop" was met with criticism for the little mishap.

Speaking on "It Takes Two", he said: "As soon as the judges tell me something, I like to take it on board.

"I'm never doing that [again]. Listen to what they say, there's a reason they are the judges and they know their stuff... I won't do it again Darcey and I'm sorry."

Joe, 27, previously revealed Dianne, 29, has been hugely supportive during his time on the show and has been offering words of encouragement and even praised his long neck, which has caught the attention of fans on social media.

He said: "My pro partner Dianne says that I've got a good ear for music and my rhythm is getting better.

"She also pointed out that I have a long neck, which is good for ballroom, the style I'm most looking forward to. There's already five Twitter accounts called Support Joe's Neck, which shows what my fan base is like!"

Although Joe has a huge group of younger admirers, he admitted he was prepared for the older generation to be more unfamiliar with his work.

He said: "I was prepared for the "who's he?" backlash when they announced the line-up. But I do appreciate that there's a whole generation who don't know who I am.

"There will, however, be youngsters in their families that do. And that's the reason I'm doing "Strictly". If I can help to bring families together on a Saturday night, that's a massive win in my book."
