JENNIFER Gibney has been turning the rehearsal rooms blue as she grapples with the tricky steps for her next dance on Strictly Come Dancing.

The Mrs Brown's Boys actress squirmed as she watched an expletive-filled blooper reel from the training room, on the hit show's follow-up slot It Takes Two.

Presenter Zoe Ball told the actress: "The Irish always have the gift of the gab but we've just got to have a quick look at your training room footage because Jennifer, your language is so colourful, it's brilliant".

Her professional dance partner, Wicklow-born Tristan MacManus (31) revealed that the perfectionist comedy actress got annoyed with herself when she fluffed her steps.


"Jennifer gets very frustrated with herself which is kinda funny," he said.

Mrs O'Carroll (50) said she is currently juggling a hectic work schedule with rehearsals coinciding for both Mrs Brown's Boys and Strictly.

"It's mind-blowing. It's just, you know, one rehearsal room is Mrs Brown's Boys and another rehearsal room is for Strictly," she said.

"Maybe the two will end up mixing ... so I'll end up dancing on Mrs Brown and just talking as Cathy on Strictly."

Fans are now looking forward to seeing her dance the waltz tonight to the Aretha Franklin classic hit 'Natural Woman'.

"It's beautiful. I just love the song, I love the dance and I just really hope I can do justice to it so I'm really looking forward to it," she said.
