Fresh-up in the Deep End - Series Two, Episode One

Television (Full Length Episode) – 1998

Fresh-up in the Deep End saw sportsmen turned TV larrikins Marc Ellis and Matthew Ridge facing challenges far outside their comfort zones. This episode has the pair taking on dancing, from ballroom and latin styles, through to cabaret, contemporary and Irish. En route they try some body percussion with Black Grace Dance Company, and do the can-can under the watchful eye of cabaret legend Debbie Dorday. Then they must put their new found skills to the test in full on competition. Ridge and Ellis' skills with a rugby ball in hand don't always translate onto the dancefloor.

I don't reckon we're gonna win too many prizes tonight, solely because we've got four left feet between us.
– Matthew Ridge, on their winning prospects
