Feisty actress and socialite Khanyi Mbau came out guns blazing during the launch of the new season of Strictly Come Dancing this week as if to  prove the adage “in it to win it”.

While most of the contestants ambled awkwardly across the dance ramp in their attempts at faking it until they make it, Mbau flipped and spread-eagled with her partner Quintus Jansen much to the delight of the guests.

The over-eager and competitive Mbau even bumped a disco ball hanging from the roof with her acrobatics. She later laughed it off and said the ball wasn’t there during rehearsals.
