Lisa Riley (Strictly Come Dancing)

Strictly Come Dancing star Lisa Riley has confessed she fears looking like an Oompa Loompa after getting a spray tan for the series!

The former Emmerdale actress admitted today: "I’ve never had a spray tan in my life! I’m frightened of looking like an Oompa Loompa!

"I don’t want to look shiny – I am incredibly pale so I think I might look a bit ridiculous but I’m going to throw myself into the Strictly experience 100%."

Meanwhile, asked how she rated your dance skills out of ten currently, Lisa replied: "The others should not be worried – AT ALL!

"The first couple of weeks I will definitely be totally two-left-footed, but I think we all will. I’ve done a bit of dancing before in a couple of shows, but this is totally different. It’s like a comedy-drama actor suddenly having to learn Shakespeare."

Lisa 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.
