Strictly Come Dancing: Matt Baker backs Lisa Riley to win!

Lisa Riley (Strictly Come Dancing)

Former Strictly Come Dancing runner up Matt Baker has revealed he's tipping Lisa Riley to win this year's show.

The ex Strictly finalist said on the One Show last night that she nailed her first live show and could be "incredible".

“Lisa is doing great. What a joy to see her go out on that first show and nail it. It is so nerve-racking in the first few weeks," he said. “So for her to cope with the nerves and go out with a smile on her face is incredible.

“It’s great to see Louis Smith in the line-up, too. I’ve known him for years. We met when he was on Blue Peter when he was about 14-years-old.”

Former Strictly Come Dancing winner Harry Judd previously gave his backing to Victoria Pendleton, saying she could be amazing… if she gets over her nerves.

The Olympic cyclist struggled in her first live show with partner Brendan Cole, forgetting her routine to her cha cha.

McFly star Harry said: “Victoria Pendleton has got a lot of potential.

“And she hasn’t nearly fulfilled that potential. She did better this week but I could tell she was still nervous and she needs to conquer that because she could be incredible.”
