Strictly Come Dancing 2012: Kimberley Walsh avoids training for second week

Kimberley Walsh (Strictly Come Dancing)

Kimberley Walsh has once again been revealed as the laziest celebrity in the Strictly Come Dancing training room this week!

The Girls Aloud star has trained for just 12 hours this week, making it her second time at the bottom of the training leaderboard.

Of course, with such a hugely busy schedule with Girls Aloud and recording her solo album, it's no surprise.

Last week's chart topper Denise has been overtaken by Lisa Riley, who has put in 24 hours with partner Robin Windsor, preparing for her Rumba to As If We Never Say Goodbye by Barbra Streisand.

Michael Vaughan has also been logging in the hours in rehearsals, with 21.5 hours spent practicing his Argentine Tango to Bust Your Windows by Jazmine Sullivan with partner Natalie Lowe.

Joining Kimberley at the bottom of the leaderboard is Louis Smith and Nicky Byrne.

Meanwhile, former England cricket captain Michael remains the celeb who's put the most effort in so far this series, with over 277 hours in training.

Denise Van Outen is second having racked up 261 hours, while Dani Harmer is the last of the remaining celebs.

Here's how long all eight of the stars have been training for this week...

Lisa Riley 24
Michael Vaughan 21.5
Denise Van Outen 18
Victoria Pendleton 17
Dani Harmer 16.5
Nicky Byrne 16
Louis Smith 15.5
Kimberley Walsh 12

Data up until Thursday night.
