Strictly Come Dancing 2012: Fern Britton plans to cover up her bingo wings!

Fern Britton (Strictly Come Dancing)

Strictly Come Dancing celeb Fern Britton has said she'll be "hiding her bingo wings" with her outfits this weekend!

The former This Morning presenter will be dancing live for the judges in tonight's first live show.

She told the Daily Mirror today: “Like everyone, I’ve got bingo wings and I will try to disguise them with my outfits on Strictly.

“I won’t be going too skimpy to start with. I have never had a small waist either – but what matters most to me is having some fun and enjoying myself."

She added: “I have wanted to do Strictly Come Dancing for such a long time, but charity commitments have always prevented me from doing so.

"Now I am doing the show, it’s a sensational feeling. I have even started dreaming about Strictly.”

Fern has previously appeared in the Strictly Christmas special, but insisted it didn't give her any advantage.

"The Christmas show was fantastic and I loved it, but it didn’t exactly give me the broad dance training people may think it did!" she said. “It’s very clear to Artem that I have no dance training at all."
