Dani Harmer (Strictly Come Dancing)

Strictly Come Dancing star Dani Harmer has admitted that dancing live on last weekend's show was the most terrifying thing she's ever done!

The Tracey Beaker actress performed a Waltz with professional partner Vincent Simone, scoring 21 points to place them in the middle of the leaderboard.

Dani recalled this week: "I was so scared. That was the most terrified I've ever been in my life. But I know I have to start smiling more and I know I will.

"I was definitely better in rehearsals. It all really did get to me. My knees were knocking."

Speaking to former Strictly contestant Zoe Ball on BBC Two spin-off It Takes Two, Dani teased that her routine this weekend would be a lot more funky!

But Dani and Vincent are still struggling to overcome their lack of height, with the petite actress joking: "We have to work harder because everything is further away. We have to work on speed. That's going to be our thing."

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!
