And it involves dancing in your sleep.
The Good Morning Britain presenter has admitted she's training so hard on Strictly that she's doing the moves when she doesn't even realise.
Totally transformed into a 1962 Dreamgirl for #movieweek @bbcstrictly by the sensational craft of @lisadaveyhair for the breathtaking bouffant @hollylouisehmua for the glam glittery eye make up and dreamy dewy skin and @vickygilldesign for the stunning outfit - and the support pants 🤣 AWESOME WORK LADIES Oh and @pernicegiovann1 literally gets out of bed and looks like that 🙄 and that’s not even a joke 🔥

Ranvir landed the top scoring dance of the series so far with three nines from the judges - proving that right now, she’s the one to beat with that show-stopping score of 27.
She and partner Giovanni Pernice hit the top of the leaderboard for their foxtrot to Love You I Do from Dreamgirls as part of Strictly’s Movie Week.
Juggling her role as political editor on GMB and presenting All Around Britain with her Strictly training is intense. The training and pushing her out of her comfort zone has led to her practising moves in her sleep.
“Your whole body feels it and you wake up with throbbing feet in the night and then you know you’ve really worked hard,” she told The Mirror. “As Giovanni keeps saying, ‘If it’s not uncomfortable, it’s not right.’ I’m literally moving in my sleep. My legs are moving in my sleep, re-enacting the whole thing over and over again.
Thank you so much for a crazy Saturday night @bbcstrictly and for voting 💙 It’s still quite surreal - and an incredible privilege to be on this show, and an even greater privilege to be taught by @pernicegiovann1 To see how professional dancers push themselves through pain/discomfort/tiredness all the time to produce utter beauty with their bodies is a revelation. It takes quite a while for non-dancer to understand this level of dedication to art.. I’m learning.. slowly! @pernicegiovann1 has been pushing himself to be the best since he was 7 yrs old, and that relentless pursuit translated into our #foxtrot for which I am very blessed🙏🏽While the kind comments from the judges etc are directed towards me, it’s honestly entirely down to the vision and drive of @pernicegiovann1 aka #Bond🔥

“It’s muscle memory and it’s repetition. You have to keep repeating it. Then, as Gio says to me, your body remembers what to do and on the night, you can enjoy it and you can perform. If you’re worried about your steps, you can’t perform.”
Former NFL star Jason Bell was the latest celebrity to leave the dance floor last week.
