Strictly Come Dancing 2012: Dani Harmer: 'I've never been to Wembley!'

Dani Harmer (Strictly Come Dancing)

Dani Harmer has admitted she's never been to Wembley, ahead of tomorrow night's Strictly Come Dancing special.

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

Dani will be performing the quickstep with her pro dancer Vincent Simone, and it's been a struggle for the petite actress.

"I'm alright now... at the beginning of the week it was horrible, our terrible Tuesday was the worst," she said. "It's really quick and there's a lot of steps, it's called the quick step for a reason! Apparently it's a step and half a step a second, so it's quite quick."

Dani continued: "I'm so excited to get to Wembley now, I've never been to Wembley before in my life, I don't even know what it looks like."

However Dani's partner Vincent admitted that planning the dance for Wembley has been hard.

He revealed: "It's been tricky to choreograph because I'm not sure how much we can fit in, but we'll find out soon."

Last week saw Dani wow with the tango, scoring her highest score of the series, and now the Tracy Beaker star wants to perform the dance again!

"It was so much fun and it's such a lovely dance, I want to do the tango every week now," she said. "We're getting there, slowly but surely. 34 is a huge score and I wasn't expecting that at all. I liked being passionate and aggressive, it was good."
