Robbie Savage has warned this weekend's paso doble will either "make or break" his 'Strictly Come Dancing' career.

The former professional footballer - who will perform the saucy Spanish routine alongside Ola Jordan on Saturday night's (29.10.11) show - explained he will be dancing to Michael Jackson's 'Bad' and his dramatic ending will have BBC One viewers "on The Edge of their seats".

He exclusively told BANG Showbiz: "I've got the paso doble this week and I'm dancing to 'Bad' by Michael Jackson.

"It's a Halloween theme and The Ending we've got planned will have people on the edge of their seats. It will make or break me.

"Everything could go wrong this week but Ola believes In Me and when you've got a partner who believes in you, you can do it."

Despite his nerves surrounding this weekend's show, Robbie was pleased to trade places with Ola and see her "petrified" when the pair performed at half-time at a recent Reading FC football match.

He added: "Ola was petrified. But that drove me forward and gave me confidence because it showed that Ola Jordan, who is the best dancer in the world and one of the prettiest dancers in the world goes to a football pitch, out of her comfort zone and she can still be nervous.

"That's what I'm like on a Saturday night."

'Robbie Savage: Football Howlers' DVD is released November 21 through Revolver Entertainment.
