A television dancing star swapped the stage for the spa at a Northumberland venue.
Former Strictly Come Dancing professionals Vincent Simone and Flavia Cacace recently wowed audiences at Newcastle’s Theatre Royal with their acclaimed Dance ’til Dawn show.
And Vincent took time out from performing to ease his muscles in the newly refurbished £250,000 spa at Matfen Hall Hotel.
The dancer was a guest of the hotel’s owners Sir Hugh and Lady Blackett and one of the first to put the new facilities through their paces.
He said: “Because of the dancing, I usually have a massage every week and the one I had here was one of the best I’ve ever had.”
The spa includes an aromatherapy room, steam room and monsoon shower among other features.
