Strictly Come Dancing 2012: Lisa Riley fears looking fake!

Lisa Riley (Strictly Come Dancing)

Strictly Come Dancing star Lisa Riley has said she worries about looking fake on the show.

The former Emmerdale actress admitted she didn't mind being called fat, but didn't want to have a makeover for the live shows.

Lisa said: "Everything n the UK is fake. You're allowed to be orange, have fake lashes and fake boobs.

"I don't care if people call me fat or Emmerwhale, I'd rather be myself than a lump of fakenes."

Unfortunately for Lisa, a bit of fake tan is par for the course for Strictly, and she's dreading it!

The former Emmerdale actress admitted earlier this month: “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 Strictly Come Dancing 2012 live shows air from October 5 on BBC One.
