Strictly Come Dancing 2012: Victoria Pendleton jealous of Kimberley Walsh!

Victoria Pendleton (Strictly Come Dancing)

Strictly Come Dancing star Victoria Pendleton has admitted she's jealous of some of her rivals.

The Olympian isn't used to not being in top, and confessed she's rather envious of how some of her fellow female competitors can pull off their dances.

The 32-year-old, who struggled with her routine this weekend, confessed that she didn't feel she ha the "performing gene" that some of the other contestants have.

"When I watch Denise Van Outen, Lisa Riley and Kimberley Walsh dance, I always think how much energy they bring," Victoria said.

She claimed: "I don't ave that performing gene so I don't think I can win."

However despite ruling herself out of the competition, Victoria insisted she was enjoying her time on the show.

The cyclist, partnered with Strictly pro Brendan Cole, added: "But I have made some great friends. Fern Britton has always been very supportive."

Meanwhile, despite weight loss being seen by most as a benefit of taking part, the Victoria has admitted she's gutted that her body is changing.

She told new! magazine this week that she doesn't like her new thin thighs and disappearing six pack.

Victoria said: “I can’t go to the gym and so I feel out of shape.

“I’ve lost a lot of muscle mass. I’ve been going to the gym three times a week for 15 years and lifting heavy weights and now I haven’t got time to do that.

“I can’t maintain the body I had as an athlete."

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 One and BBC One HD.
