Strictly Come Dancing 2012: Nicky Byrne ready to jive at Wembley

Nicky Byrne (Strictly Come Dancing 2012)

Nicky Byrne has said he's excited to perform at Wembley tomorrow for Strictly Come Dancing 2012's Children In Need special.

The remaining nine celebs will be wowing a crowd of 6,000 at the London venue, plus millions of viewers at home.

Nicky and his pro partner Karen Hauer will be performing the jive, and Nicky revealed: "It's actually going well, I'm going to be honest.

"Day 1 was OK, Day 2 was a disaster but Karen told me on Wednesday that she's sped the music up... but it worked!."

Nicky confessed he wasn't that nervous: "We've played there a lot with Wembley, we even have our hands out there in concrete so it's going to be amazing."

However Nicky's partner Karen said: "I'm actually scared, exited but scared."

Last week saw Nicky wow with a foxtrot as he earned his top score of the series so far.

"It was great, it was a real fun, fun song to do. I had Westlife's Shaine in the front row and it was so much fun," Nicky admitted.

He added: "It felt well after I finished and when Craig said it was a vast improvement, it was a great feeling because we put so much effort into getting it right, it went well."
