Strictly Come Dancing 2012: Kimberley Walsh fears being judged!

Strictly Come Dancing celeb Kimberley Walsh has confessed she's worried about being judged!

The Girls Aloud star admitted during this week's launch press conference that she wished she only had to train for the show.

“I’m most concerned about the live shows," she said. If you could just do the dance training that would be fine but I’m a bit scared about the judging process.”

Meanwhile Kimberley's rivals have also been speaking about their fears and hopes for the competition.

“I have no dance experience but wanted to do something completely different and Strictly was such a great opportunity for me," said Olympic medalist Victoria Pendleton. “I am so excited to get out there because there is no expectation. Performing with no expectation is very different from performing with high, high expectations.

“That said, I am competitive and will try as hard as I can on Strictly. I would like a partner who is a taskmaster.”


Westlife star Nicky Byrne has said he hopes that Strictly Come Dancing will beat The X Factor in the ratings, just to get at his old boss Simon Cowell.

He said: “I was signed to Simon for 14 years, so it would be a good bit of banter if we won the ratings battle with X Factor.”

He added: “I’m hoping the Westlife boys will come along to support me though. Shane (Filan) said he’d come down just to help me get some votes.”

And model Jerry Hall has said she only took part in Strictly because it scared her!

She said: “I always say yes to things that slightly scare me. When I told my sons I was doing Strictly, they were like, ‘Wow’.

“When I told my daughters they said, ‘Mum, aren’t you kinda lazy?’ I said, ‘I cook dinner.’ ”

Strictly Come Dancing 2012 airs on BBC One tomorrow night.
