Time to tango: The Dancing With The Stars professional plays a dance instructor for the skit

In the cameo, Phil agrees to give lessons to mal-coordinated bride-to-be Mia (actress Joanna Garcia) and her fiance Casey (played by Cooke), who is pretending he cannot dance to make her look better.

But sparks fly when Mia starts criticising her man over his apparent two left feet.

She says: 'It’s like I’m dancing with a malfunctioning robot…Look, you’re never going to get better unless you know how bad you suck.

'I don’t know whether to keep taking these classes or have you reprogrammed….I mean, you are just so bad.'

Outraged Casey responds, 'I am an expert dancer.'

Hough pleads with him: 'Casey, no.'

But the furious fiance goes on: 'I am a much better dancer than you, you really aren’t’ that good - bordering on bad.'

He then adds: 'Watch this.'

Actor Cooke then reaches out a hand to Hough, who responds: 'I don’t think this is a good idea.'

But Casey says: 'I have to do this, I cannot keep it in any more.'

Hough says: 'I understand.' And the two guys then hit the floor for an intimate tango that sees them locked in an embrace, with actor Cooke twirling Hough around the room.

Hough does a series of acrobatic leaps before jumping into his friend’s arms.

The two men then have an awkward 'man hug' before giving an effeminate dance salute.
