Strictly Come Dancing 2012: Denise Van Outen dropped by James Jordan!

Denise Van Outen (Strictly Come Dancing)

It's not going so well in training between Denise Van Outen and James Jordan this weekend.

After their top score last weekend, the pressure is one to come out and impress the judges once again.

This Saturday night will see Denise and pro partner James Jordan take on an American Smooth.

However James confessed: "It's not that smooth so far. It was really bad."

And James revealed he had even dropped Denise on her head in rehearsals yesterday!

However he insisted: "We don't think about the scores, we're just trying to create a dance that we enjoy and the people at home enjoy.

"It could be an amazing dance but at this time its not exactly an American Smooth."

Denise scored the series' highest marks at the weekend, including the first tens so far.

"I was ecstatic, it was brilliant," Denise admitted. "It was such good fun, to get three tens I was over the moon. It was hard and first, we were so out of breath."

Speaking on It Takes Two about performing at Wembley, Denise revealed: "Going into that last lift where I had to jump, the crowd helped me there.

"I'd say this and the jive was my favourite dance."
