Paul's Tea Breaks

Paul Daniels likes to take tea breaks during training, to allow him to replace lost energy.

Paul & Ola sat down with the Daily Mirror to discuss how their training has been going. Ola says: “Paul does find the faster moves hard to keep up with, so I have ­adapted the dances to a much slower pace. Paul’s on tour and performing every night and then we train five days a week from 9am to 1pm or 1.30pm to 5.30pm. How long we go for depends on how quickly Paul gets tired. If he needs a break we stop and have a sit down and a cup of tea and a biscuit. I have to ­respond to what his body tells me. Although Paul is old he is very fit. And luckily he has no problem with the character side of things. He told me he’s very comfortable with the sexy side of dancing.”

Paul doesn't worry about getting over excited when dancing with Ola in her costumes: "I have been surrounded by good-­looking young girls in skimpy costumes for the last 42 years in showbusiness. I’m not going to get aroused by a dancer. If you’re going to get turned on by a girl in a skimpy costume you really need to get out a bit more. But I have to say Ola is – and she’s not forcing me to say this – she is a VERY good-looking girl.”

It's worth reading the whole interview, as they seem to be having quite a giggle.
