Strictly Come Dancing 2012: Louis Smith enjoying the "crazy" ride!

Louis Smith (Strictly Come Dancing)

Louis Smith has admitted that he's still coming to terms with taking part in Strictly Come Dancing!

At 23, Louis has had a hectic few years, going from the Olympics in London straight into Strictly.

"I'm sat here, a guy who wears a leotard for a living, preparing to appear on Strictly in front of millions," he told the Daily Mirror this week.

Speaking of his new life, the former X Factor reject, said: "I've been to the GQ Men of the Year awards, rubbed shoulders with Kylie. I've been invited to fashion shows in Paris.

"A bronze sculpture has been made of me and there's talk of a 30-foot wooden statue being built near my home."

He confessed to the tabloid: "It's crazy. And it's all come from doing a few good pommel horse routines at the right time."

Last night saw Louis wow the judges a Dirty Dancing routine as Strictly went to Hollywood.

Strictly Come Dancing continues tonight on BBC One with the second elimination of the series.
