Strictly Come Dancing 2012: Denise Van Outen will dance tonight!

Denise Van Outen (Strictly Come Dancing)

Strictly Come Dancing star Denise Van Outen has confirmed she'll be dancing on tonight's second live show, despite suffering whiplash.

The West End star admitted it was "touch and go" whether or not she'd be able to perform this evening, after hurting her neck during training this week.

But this morning Denise confirmed: "We do lots of spinning.

"On Thursday morning (October 11) we danced it flat out then afterwards I was taken to the doctors.

"I'm still in pain but with the adrenaline and my nerves I'll probably forget about it. It's such a brilliant routine when it's done properly!"

Denise's pro partner James Jordan confessed earlier this week that he was feeling bad for pushing Denise so much during training.

He tweeted: "I'm actually feeling quite bad now!. Was really tough on @denise_vanouten this morning... Until her neck really went... I'm sorry!! #feelbad"

The pair will perform a jive in tonight's second live show, which starts at 6:30PM on BBC One.
