Strictly Come Dancing: Victoria Pendleton says Dani Harmer's lipo is "terrible"!

Victoria Pendleton (Strictly Come Dancing)

Strictly Come Dancing 2012 star Victoria Pendleton has said rival Dani Harmer getting liposuction during the show is "terrible".

Size six star Dani hit out at Twitter bullies recently after being called fat by online trolls.

"It does upset me in a way. Everyone looks bigger than they are on the telly," she said. "But I’m a size 6, so it’s a bit funny when people turn around and say "You’re fat". I’m less than the size of an average woman."

But last month saw the 23-year-old take a break from her Strictly rehearsals for a small operation.

Lipoglaze, a non-invasive liposuction procedure, helps shift extra pounds by freezing fat cells.

Dani told the Daily Mail about the operation: "I'm very fit and healthy and have a great diet, but there was a small area around my tummy which wouldn't shift.

"Like everyone on Strictly I want to look good and I loved using Lipoglaze."

However Olympian Victoria wasn't so keen, she said of Dani's operation: "I think it's terrible. There's other healthier ways to do it. I'd rather get a personal trainer."

And proving it, Victoria revealed she had lost nearly a stone since starting on the show.

"People think it's just from Strictly, when actually it's also loss of muscle from not weight training since the Olympics," she said. "It's just dropped off me. I look down at my skinny legs now like 'Are those mine?' I really liked being muscly!"

Tune in to this 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.
