Strictly Come Dancing 2012: Dani Harmer gets Jedward's backing!

Dani Harmer (Strictly Come Dancing 2012)

Strictly Come Dancing star Dani Harmer has won herself some surprise fans in the form of X Factor duo Jedward!

Saturday night saw Dani wow the judges again with her Samba to Single Ladies by Beyoncé, scoring 9 points from each of the judges.

But it sounds like Jedward would've given the Tracy Beaker star perfect tens!

"Jedward told me they were backing me to win the show and they want to come to he studio to watch," Dani revealed. "I'm scared because I don't trust them - they would do something crazy."

Meanwhile, Dani has hit out at internet trolls who have been branding her fat.

The petite Strictly celeb admitted that personal comments about her weight had been hurtful.

“I don’t mind comments about me or how I dance but I don’t understand how personal these people can get,” she said. “It’s ridiculous and so stupid and I have a lot of young fans so I want little girls to know they should just be happy.

“I’d never in a million years go up to someone and tell them they look a bit chubby today, so why should people do that to me just because I’m on TV?”

Dani continued: “If you want to offer advice or constructive criticism, then fine, let me know, but I don’t know why anyone else would care about what I look like.

“I’m a dress size six and I’m five foot one, so for people to be calling me overweight is hard to believe."

Next week Strictly Come Dancing is on Saturday 1st December at 6.50pm with the results show on Sunday 2nd December at 7.20pm on BBC One and BBC One HD.
