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.

SWEP article - Rob backs pal Kev in bid for strictly crownNow 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."
