Strictly Come Dancing 2012: Victoria Pendleton struggles with sexy dances

Victoria Pendleton (Strictly Come Dancing)

Strictly Come Dancing 2012 star Victoria Pendleton has confessed she's struggling with the show's saucy routines.

The Olympic gold medalist, partnered with Strictly pro Brendan Cole, hasn't had the best of starts to the series so far, but seemed to hit her stride last weekend, scoring 31 points.

Speaking to the Radio Times however, Victoria said: "As lovely as Brendan is, he’s not my fiancé, so dancing the tango, which involves staying away from each other as opposed to pretending to be in love, was really enjoyable for me.

“I’m not an actress, so pretending to be in love with someone for a week is actually quite hard.”

Victoria is due to marry her fiancé and former Scott Gardner next summer, and said there was jealousy from him!

She told the magazine: “It’s a good thing Scott is very secure in our relationship, so there are no issues there.

“He has been very supportive, running me a bath when I get home from training and coming to the studio every week.”

Tune in to next week’s show on Saturday 3rd November at 6.30pm for Strictly Come Dancing with Strictly Come Dancing: The Results on Sunday 4th November at 7.20pm on BBC One and BBC One HD.
