In the ballroom dancing world, Donnie and his partner Gaynor were quite simply the best ever! 14 times World Latin Champions, 11 times International Latin American Dance Champions - the list goes on!
After years of punishing training and dance routines, time started to catch up with Donnie.
Andrew Williams performed surgery on his knees to try and arrest the arthritic changes that had occurred.
Donnie and I then worked very hard to gain structural strength in the muscles that support the knee joint.
Again, to work with a master of his trade like Donnie was a terrific experience, I think we both learnt a lot.
Donnie now lives in LA and is heavily involved with the show 'Dancing with the Stars'.
