Strictly Come Dancing 2012: Kimberley Walsh putting least hours in

Kimberley Walsh (Strictly Come Dancing)

Kimberley Walsh has put in the least hours into this weekend's Strictly Come Dancing performance, it's been revealed.

Stats show that Kimberley has put in just 12 hours of training, less than half that of Denise Van Outen, who tops the training hours.

After being in the bottom two last week, it's perhaps surprising that Kimberley comes bottom of the training leaderboard.

However the Girls Aloud star has had a pretty hectic schedule recently,

Last night saw see the singer performing with her bandmates for Children In Need ahead of tonight's Strictly’s Wembley special and a performance at the Royal Variety show next weekend.

The group are making plans for their tour and on top of that, Kimberley is also recording her own solo album.

She admitted: “I am a bit mental – I’m not really sure what I was thinking. But they are all amazing things so I’m just trying to get on wit everything.”

This weekend will also see Kimberley performing with Girls Aloud alongside Kylie, but hopefully it’ll be the last busy week for a while.

“This week and next week are really bust but then it will calm down again. Hopefully, I’ll get to stay then I’ll just focus on this,” Kimberley said.

Here's how many hours the acts have put in this week:

Denise Van Outen 26
Michael Vaughan 20.5
Lisa Riley 18
Louis Smith 17
Dani Harmer 15.1
Richard Arnold 15
Nicky Byrne 14
Victoria Pendleton 14
Kimberley Walsh 12

Note: Data correct up until Thursday night

Overall, Michael Vaughan has put the most hours in this series, with 250 hours worth of training to date.

Denise Van Outen is second, with 225 hours.
