Strictly Come Dancing: Denise Van Outen worries about not making the final

Denise Van Outen (Strictly Come Dancing)

Denise Van Outen worries about not making the Strictly Come Dancing 2012 final, despite huge scores from the judges.

Denise scored the highest marks of the series on Saturday night and the first tens so far this year with 39 points out of 40 for her Charleston.

But as Craig Revel Horwood pointed out, the judges only get a 50% say in the result, and it's already seen some shock results.

Kimberley Walsh and Nicky Byrne have both been in the dance off, despite some top scores.

And Denise apparently fears her lack of public support could cost her a place in the final.

"Denise saw this as her last chance as a big, high-profile TV gig. She was overheard stressing she didn't have enough time to train with James," a source said.

The insider claimed that Denise was finding the moves easy, but feared after Kimberley was in the bottom two that she could also miss out on the final.

"Previously Denise was tweeting about finding the moves tough, but compared to some of the others it was actually breeze for her."

The source added: "Now this has given her a knock and she's scared if she doesn't get to the final."

Strictly judge Craig recently claimed that Kimberley wouldn't be able to win the show because she's hated by the public.

“The public hate her. Kimberley needs to go out on the street and start canvassing for votes,” Craig told the Daily Mirror this week. “It’s not the judges that hate her it’s the public, it seems. You have to win the public vote to win Strictly. The judges only have 50 per cent of the vote.

“Ann Widdecombe knew how to canvass. She is a politician and that is why she went through the whole 10 weeks. Kimberley needs to get out on the streets and do the same if she wants to win.”


Strictly Come Dancing 2012 continues Saturday, 24th November at 18:30 with the latest Strictly results show on Sunday 25th November at 1925 on BBC One and BBC One HD.
