Darcey Bussell has predicted passion between Strictly Come Dancing's Kimberley Walsh and her partner Pasha Kovalev.

The two were revealed as one of this year's pairings in tonight's launch show after the Strictly Come Dancing pairings were confirmed.

Speaking about how the celebrities had been paired with the dancers, new judge Darcey said: "Well I mean now they’ve been matched up, I don’t think there’ll be any personalities that will be clashing. At all."

Chatting to host Tess Daly, Darcey added: "One of those dance couples I can’t wait to see on the floor is Kimberly and Pasha. I think he’ll be giving her a lot of passion on that dancefloor. Exciting!"

Bruno quipped: "I like her already!"

Craig agreed with Darcey, saying: "I think Kimberly and Pasha are going to be really dynamic and explosive. I think that’s a really great pairing."

But he added: "Jerry and Anton… Jerry, I think she was looking for someone tall, handsome with lots of stamina, and she ended up with Anton."

The Strictly Come Dancing 2012 live shows begin on October 5 on BBC One.
