Strictly Come Dancing 2012: Colin Salmon struggling to keep up!

Strictly Come Dancing star Colin Salmon is reportedly struggling to keep up in training.

The hunky Hollywood actor has apparently gone over the head of his pro dancer partner Kristina Rihanoff to request a slow down in training.

“Colin is a hard worker but he is finding it tough to keep up with Kristina," a source told The Sun this morning. “She obviously feels that he has great potential and wants to see him improve as much as possible before they perform again this weekend.

“But Colin has spoken to show staff privately and admits he’d like to slow things down because her strict schedule is too much for him."

The show insider added: “He is very aware that the show is a marathon and not a sprint – and is worried that he won’t be able to hack this pace for much longer.”

Colin and Kristina scored a respectable 23 points during last weekend's first live show with their cha cha cha, but they'll need to impress the judges a lot more to be safe from elimination this weekend.

Colin admitted he was worried about letting his sons down with his performances on the show, saying: “One of the most important things is that my boys could go to school on Monday with their heads up.”

Strictly Come Dancing 2012 continues this 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!
