Strictly Come Dancing star Victoria Pendleton has said she hopes to get her pro partner Brendan Cole to teach her fiance how to dance!

The Olympian is preparing to marry her former coach Scott Gardener next summer, and doesn't want to upstage him during their first dance.

Speaking to the Radio Times, Victoria confessed her Halloween bride outfit got her excited for her wedding last weekend.

“Putting it on reminded me how excited I am about marrying Scott," she said. "I feel like I’ve been waiting for ever.

“First there was the Olympics, now Strictly – but as soon as I leave the show I’m turning all my attention to the wedding."

The double London 2012 gold medalist continued: “I won’t make a fool of myself during my first dance. I’ve tried to teach Scott some steps in our kitchen.

"It would be lovely to do a waltz, so I will be enlisting Brendan’s help.”

And Victoria joked that her wedding dress wouldn't be as complex as the outfits that she's been wearing on Strictly!

She added: “I’ve chosen something simple and classic. It won’t have chiffon wings – I don’t want to accidentally strangle Scott during our first dance.”

This week Strictly Come Dancing is on Saturday 10th November at 6.30pm with the results show on Sunday 11th November at 7.25pm on BBC Oneand BBC One HD.
