Strictly Come Dancing news: Denise Van Outen insists she can't dance!

Denise Van Outen (Strictly Come Dancing)

West End star Denise Van Outen has insisted she has no advantage going into Strictly Come Dancing.

It was confirmed last night that Denise was part of this year's Strictly Come Dancing 2012 line up, with many predicting her stage school background will work well for her.

However, Denise said today: "I can move. I can do the basics. I've got the basic dance skills thanks to theatre school. But this is all really new to me, and I haven't danced properly for about 15 years.

"I'd give myself maybe a four out of ten. I'm most nervous about the fact that people will think I can dance already because of my stage career, but I've actually never had a true dancing role."

She added: "That's what I worry about the most, people thinking I'm a dancer when I'm not."

Denise will find out who her professional dance partner is on Saturday night when [cat c="strictly come dancing"]Strictly Come Dancing 2012[/cat] starts on BBC One at 6:30PM.
