Strictly Come Dancing 2012: Backstage bitch begins over Kimberley Walsh and Denise Van Outen!

Bitching backstage on Strictly Come Dancing 2012 has already started, with the contestants more competitive than ever!

It seems that some of the celebrities aren't happy that their rivals have so much experience, claiming it to be unfair playing field.

Both Kimberley Walsh and Denise Van Outen have apparently been singled out for their years of performing and dancing previously, having both stared in the West End.

"It's one of the most competitive groups ever. They all want to win and they are sizing each other up. It's already getting pretty heated," a source told Star magazine this week.

The insider added: "Some of the other contestants think it's unfair that they've got so much experience. Kimberley even judged Let's Dance for Sport Relief."

Denise previously defended herself from criticism, insisting: "This is all really new to me, and I haven’t danced properly for about 15 years. When I say properly, I mean in a stage show when I’ve had to dance. 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. I’m hoping that after this I might be able to be cast in more dancing roles on the stage, that’s my hope."

Meanwhile some of the celebs are said to be jealous of Louis Smith and Victoria Pendleton's great bodies.

The insider claimed: "It's going to be impossible for people like Sid Owen and Lisa Riley, who don't do a lot of exercise, to compete."

The Strictly Come Dancing 2012 live shows start in October on BBC One.
