Greg Wise has opened up on the incredible disco dance he did in honour of his late sister Clare on Strictly Come Dancing.

The actor, 55, performed a couple’s choice routine with partner Karen Hauer on his second week on the show, choosing an upbeat number in memory of his ‘disco diva’ sister.

Revealing why he went for a happy rather than a sad song, Greg told Lorraine: ‘She was the big disco diva, she was cremated in a glitterball coffin to banging old 80s disco music.

‘So I had to do this for her and I thought what was rather wonderful, having had the preamble before the dance about grief and about loss and about great sadness, that rather than go into a slightly soppy waltz, we went into a banging disco number which was just silly and upbeat and fun.’

Clare Wise, who was a film industry executive, died at the age of 51 in 2016 after battling breast cancer which had spread to her bones.

Greg revealed that he still gets ‘visits’ from Clare, despite her not being around physically, since she died.

He explained: ‘That’s one of the things about someone, when they’ve died, when they’ve left us, they still come back from time to time.

‘They still do reappear and that’s what the dance was about. This person has turned up, is this real? Let’s celebrate because we know that this time’s going to be short.

‘Because people who’ve died always come back, my sister constantly visits me in dreams and what’s wonderful is that with passage of time comes a bit more health.

‘She was so very ill in her last few years, she was so ill but now she visits me as a healthy person, as the old silly, fun sister which is just wonderful.’

Lorraine airs weekdays from 9am on ITV.
