Not Strictly about squash ...

Andrew Castle and his partner on Strictly Come DancingThe man who brought headbanging to the tango apparently taught Stefan Edberg to play squash.

If you never thought you'd read that sentence ... read on ...

Andrew Castle, the former British tennis number one, GMTV presenter, current contestant and all-round housewives' favourite on Strictly Come Dancing introduced the former Swedish tennis star to the great game when Edberg was living in London.

It appears that the Swede is also actually pretty good at it, competing regularly for his home town of Växjö.

Castle himself plays squash for Surrey, and occasionally has a hit against Tim Henman. I can't find any reference to it, but I seem to remember him also commentating on squash for the BBC some years ago.

It was last Saturday night that Castle's tango had the judges reaching for the rule book, after introducing a headbanging move that would have been more appropriate at a Metallica concert (right) ...
