Strictly Come Dancing 2012: Dani Harmer fears Denise Van Outen!

Dani and Vincent

Strictly Come Dancing contestant Dani Harmer has said that Denise Van Outen is "the one to watch".

Speaking at the Inside Soap awards last night, the Tracy Beaker star admitted that West End performer Denise would be her toughest competition in the BBC One dancing series.

"I think everyone is going to do amazing," she said. "I mean we're all supporting each other so much, it's not really a competition.

"But I think Denise might be the one to watch, she's quite feisty."

In an interview with The Sun, Dani revealed how both she and her professional dance partner Vincent Simone have been struggling with illness.

She said: "The thing is Vince has got it as well, so we're both coughing and spluttering everywhere, but we're still both putting in a 100 per cent."

But the petite brunette beauty added: "I'm loving every second, it's the best experience I've ever had.

"Just learning all these things and working really closely with Vince is just amazing."

The Strictly Come Dancing 2012 live shows start on October 5, and Dani admitted she was nervous about being the first celebrity booted out.

She explained: "I've just got to keep everything crossed that I stay in it as long as possible. As long as I don't go out first I'm happy."
