“I am Vivienne Westwood's muse,” says the rising star of the Royal Ballet.

Don't give up the day job then. Muses can have an even shorter shelf life than dancers. But it's so far so good for Montaño who started out as a footballer before becoming a dancer.

Next week he performs in 24 Preludes. And as for that muse business, he adds: “Vivienne Westwood gives me a lot of advice about ballet and life – and clothes.” Maybe take one out of the three.
