Strictly Come Dancing news: Victoria Pendleton in pain from training

Victoria Pendleton (Strictly Come Dancing)

Despite being a gold medal winning cyclist, Victoria Pendleton has confessed her feet are aching from Strictly Come Dancing rehearsals.

In an interview with the Radio Times this week, Victoria revealed how dancing in heels was a hard challenge for her.

"My feet are already killing me," she told the magazine. "Honestly. I have spent the last couple of weeks hobbling around trying not to get cramp,’ she told the Radio Times.

"I’ve been banned from wearing heels for the last ten years and wearing them all day is agony."

Olympian Victoria added: "The flexibility in my feet is also very limited, which has always been an advantage in cycling.

"When you are pedalling, you need to keep your foot in the same position throughout the revolution otherwise you don’t get 100 per cent power transfer to the pedals."
