Strictly Come Dancing 2012: Colin Salmon suffering from jet lag

Colin Salmon (Strictly Come Dancing)

Strictly Come Dancing star Colin Salmon has been suffering from jet lag ahead of tonight's latest live show!

Earlier this week it was revealed that Colin had taken his pro dance partner Kristina Rhianoff all the way out to Canada to train!

Colin had been forced to fly out to the cold country to shoot some final scenes for his work on new Sky One series Arrow.

A source told The Sun yesterday: “The Strictly stars often have to travel around with their celebrity partners but jetting off to Vancouver is quite unusual.

“But Colin had no choice as he had some scenes to shoot that couldn’t be delayed.”

Speaking to the newspaper today, Colin's partner Kristina admitted that both of them were suffering after jetting back quickly for this evening's latest performance show.

She said: "Coping with the jet lag is hard. We're trying our best but it's not at all easy. I'm really worried tiredness will affect our performance.

"We haven't had much time to rehearse, either. We had our first proper day of rehearsal on Wednesday - we squeezed in a bit of training on set between Colin's scenes.

"As well as our routine, I have a professional number, with a solo, to do. I hope it will be OK but I'm seriously concerned."

Speaking to the newspaper, Kristina admitted the pressure was on her and Colin and said that the female celebs would be tough to beat.

She said: "You've got Kimberley Walsh, Denise Van Outen, Dani Harmer who is brilliant too, and Lisa Riley who can really move. They're the ones to beat."
