Strictly Come Dancing 2012: Kimberley Walsh says her biggest competition is herself!

Kimberley Walsh reckons that her biggest Strictly Come Dancing rival is herself!

Speaking to The Sun this weekend, the Girls Aloud star confessed that she was far too hard on herself.

Last night saw Kimberley wow the judges with a saucy salsa to Beyonce's Naughty Girl.

Despite top marks from the judges, and a huge fanbase, Kimberley said she was still suffering from nerves.

She told the newspaper: "You definitely settle into Strictly and you feel more comfortable in this studio and on the floor. But it is still really scary.

“And there’s more pressure when your friends and family are watching in the audience, because you can get distracted by them.

“Sometimes it’s easier if they’re not there because then you can concentrate on what you’re doing. There’s always a risk that you catch someone’s eye.”

She added: “I am a bit of a perfectionist. I know you can never be perfect but you can always try and push it a bit more.

“I’m competitive with myself rather than anyone else in the competition. I want to better what I’m doing otherwise I feel like I’m not doing myself justice.”
