Kimberley Walsh (Strictly Come Dancing)

Kimberley Walsh has admitted she's been struggling in training for Strictly Come Dancing this week.

The Girls Aloud star, partnered with Pasha Kovalev, confessed she was finding it hard to rehearse for her first live show dance, the Cha Cha Cha.

She tweeted late last night: "Great training session with my wonderfully patient partner @PashaKovalev . It should be simple right? 1,2,3 cha cha cha #theymakeitlookeasy"

All of the celebrities are now one week into their pre-show training, and it's going better for some than others.

Pro dancer James Jordan ā€¸seems to finally be getting along with his celebrity partner Denise Van Outen, writing to his followers: "Finally a different @denise_vanouten turned up to training today. Can get through the dance at last! Still would like a partner swap though!"

Earlier in the day he had tweeted: "This will be 6 days in a row that I've spent with @denise_vanouten !! Can't wait for tomorrow when I have a break from her!!! #drivingmemad."

Meanwhile Louis Smith was forced to disappoint his very big and very eager fanbase last night, reminding them that the live shows don't kick off for another few weeks.

"Strictly come dancing starts on October 5/6 guys :)" he said.

And former Emmerdale actress Lisa Riley had a go at the press for claiming she was finding rehearsals tiring.

She hit back: "All this about me being "to tired" load of rubbish! I have been filming and training doing five days 16/17 hour days! Anyone would be tired!"
