Strictly Come Dancing 2012: Jerry Hall, Victoria Pendleton 'suffer backstage meltdowns'

Victoria Pendleton (Strictly Come Dancing)

Strictly Come Dancing stars Jerry Hall and Victoria Pendleton have reportedly both suffered 'meltdowns' backstage this week.

Last night saw the Strictly Come Dancing stars find out their pro partners and it seems the pressure is already getting to some of the celebs!

Fortunately yesterday evening's first show was pre-recorded, but from October the show will be live and there will be no time for second chances.

According to the Daily Star, both model Jerry Hall and Olympic cyclist Victoria Pendleton were "in tears" backstage over their nerves.

Model Jerry also found herself in an argument with staff over 'stealing' her belongings... when they were just where she had left them!

Meanwhile Victoria is reportedly worried about becoming the first celeb to be kicked off when the show goes live in just over three weeks' time.

An insider told the newspaper: “We are days from the launch and the dramas have started.”

A spokesperson for the show said all of the celebrities were "nervous" ahead of the first show.

They added: “Jerry Hall is one of the most charming and glamorous contestants we have had and all the cast are in love with her.”
