Strictly Come Dancing 2012: Michael Vaughan rehearsing with a hangover!

Michael Vaughan (Strictly Come Dancing)

Strictly Come Dancing 2012 celeb Michael Vaughan has admitted to rehearsing with a hangover!

The cricket star revealed today how he and fellow Strictly star Sid Owen have spent time relaxing after their performances by hitting the pubs.

But despite their best efforts, Westlife's Nicky Byrne has refused to join them, opting instead to focus on his training.

“Sid tries to get me in trouble, taking me out on the lash too ­often,” former England cricket captain Michael told the Daily Mirror today.

He added: “We’ve been a few times. Nicky Byrne’s avoiding us, he’s been too scared. He needs to come out with us. I’ve rehearsed once with a hangover.”

Michael, who achieved an impressive 20 points with his first dance on Friday night, also revealed how he's become unlikely pals with model Jerry Hall on the show.

He told the newspaper: “Jerry’s the funniest lady I’ve ever met. If I need to liven up, I just go to see her. She comes up with classic one-liners.”

Strictly Come Dancing 2012 continues next Saturday night on BBC One, with all of the celebs performing their second dance. The first results show will follow on Sunday, with one celeb getting the boot!
