Strictly Come Dancing 2012: Lisa Riley gets 'double dip' spray tan!

Lisa Riley (Strictly Come Dancing)

Strictly Come Dancing 2012 star Lisa Riley has revealed she's gone for a "double dip" spray tan!

Speaking to TV Guide magazine ahead of the week's live shows, Lisa said: “My professional partner Robin [Windsor] told me I should go for a 'double dip' spray tan because I’m so pale, but it’s really shiny and I’ve ended up looking like the tin man from The Wizard of Oz! I’m getting used to it though, it’s the new me!”

Asked how she was getting on with her dance partner, Robin, Lisa added: “We’ve got a very similar sense of humour and we struck up some banter really quickly – we’re having a riot! I’ve always thought he was the best professional and it does come in handy that he’s got arms of steel!”

Lisa has been training in Manchester alongside Olympic cyclist Victoria Pendleton, and Lisa has been getting tips from the London 2012 gold medalist.

The ex-Emmerdale star said: “Vic is fantastic, I’ve had my picture taken with her Olympic medals and we’ve become the Mancky girls! The good thing is she can teach me that winning streak, because she’s a champion and it’s driven into her.”
