Strictly Come Dancing 2012: Dani Harmer has potential, says Vincent Simone

Strictly Come Dancing 2012 star Dani Harmer has "a lot of potential", her pro dance partner Vincent Simone has said.

Speaking to TV Magazine, the Italian ballroom star praised Tracy Beaker actress Dani, and said he hoped viewers would realise how much effort the small duo have to put it.

"It’s very early days but Dani can move and has a lot of potential," Vincent told the publication. "I know it is down to the public vote and they have a lot of power.

"What we do is physically hard and demanding but we do it because we love it and every year it is a challenge for us to take people who haven’t done it before and hopefully win the glitterball. We all want to win."

Asked who he thought would win, Vincent refused to name just one celeb.

"There are a few names – Denise; Lisa because she has so much personality; little Dani because she is cute, or Kimberley," he replied.

Vincent continued: "And with the men there is Louis who looks good on the dancefloor, and Sid who I didn’t expect to be any good."

He added: "But it’s about whether they can keep it up. It divides the men from the boys and the women from the girls."

Strictly Come Dancing returns this weekend on Saturday 27th October at 6.30pm for Strictly’s spooktacular Halloween special with the results show on Sunday 28th October at 7.20pm on BBC One and BBC One HD.
