Lisa Riley (Strictly Come Dancing)

Strictly Come Dancing favourite Lisa Riley has said she'd love to make it trough to the final next month.

This weekend Lisa and her pro partner Robin are doing the Rumba to As If We Never Say Goodbye by Barbra Streisand.

"I love it, I get to touch Robin up all day! It's fantastic!" Lisa revealed of training this week. "We're giggling and laughing but if we can get the emotion there then it will work. We're going to do the splits every week, we want to do different things."

She added: "I would love to be int he final, we've got a lot of competition but fingers crossed."

However Robin admitted it would be an uphill struggle for the pair.

"Everyone's improving at such a fast rate, you've got to get at least 32 to be up the top of the table," he said. "You've got to go out there and do an incredible dance. Fingers cross we do this week.

"We've had a quite intense week in training, it's about time I become the man in this relationship!"

Last weekend saw Lisa and Robin wow at Wembley , and Lisa admitted her family were overwhelmed watching backstage!

She said: "It was amazing. I've never ever had an experience like that in my life, I just want to bottle it and sell it to my friends, I've never had an experience like that.

"My dad was in the audience and he was crying from start to finish, he was so proud."
