Strictly Come Dancing star Denise Van Outen has revealed her way of relaxing is to go out partying with Louis Smith!

West End star Denise has been putting plenty of hours into the show, but admitted even she needed to let off steam every now and then.

"I've had a couple of nights when we've gone out after the show on Saturday and the kids have dragged me out," she told Yahoo!

Denise, who scored the show's first tens of the series on Saturday, added: "We've had a really fun time. Louis is brilliant fun on a night out. He'll stay up till all hours, he's really good fun."

And Denise reckons that the double London 2012 medalist will be challenging her for the title this year.

She said: "All the girls like Louis! But for me, because I've got to know him, I kind of look at him as a little brother but he's lovely, he's really sweet.

"I think Louis has got a really strong chance, he's very popular."

Legally Blonde star Denise also have praise for Tracy Beaker star Dani Harmer and her pro partner Vincent Simone.

She gushed: "I love watching Dani and Vincent - team smurf!

"I love them both and they do seem very in sync with each other. And Dani technically is very good, her footwork is great."
