STRICTLY Swansea hopeful Kev Johns is leaving nothing to cha-cha-chance.
The broadcaster, writer and Swansea City announcer is preparing himself mentally and physically for when the Evening Post's dance spectacular is staged later this year.
Now he has won star backing as he strives to be crowned Strictly champion — and raise money for his nominated charity as well.
Kev is patron of Treat Trust Wales, which aims to build an £18 million therapy centre in the grounds of Morriston Hospital.
And Treat patron Rob Brydon and president Michael Sheen have both sent him good-luck messages.
Rob said: "When I heard my fellow Treat patron Kev Johns is competing in Strictly Swansea I thought, 'He'll walk it…'.
"This is a worry. Kev, you'll have to dance it, walking won't be enough. Good luck!"
Michael added: "Good luck Kev! Always knew you had some twinkle in your toes.
"On behalf of everyone at Treat Trust Wales, thanks for bringing us a few quick-steps closer to our goals!"
Kev, who has had three dance sessions so far, said: "I'm really enjoying it but it is hard trying to remember all the steps."
Treat founder Melanie Davies said: "It's fantastic Kev is doing this for us. We'll be in Oceana on the night, cheering him on."
