Strictly Come Dancing judge Darcey Bussell has threatened to get harsher on the acts this weekend!

Seven acts remain in the competition after Victoria Pendleton was booted out of the show at the weekend.

New judge Darcey admitted that she would start to become more critical of the remaining celebs now we're well past the half way point of the show.

With next month's final in sight, Darcey warned: "As we get nearer to the final, I am going to get harsher. I know the corrections we've told the contestants to make, so I am looking for polished performances now. I'm going to get tough!"

Meanwhile, the ballet star revealed some of her favourites on the show included Lisa Riley and Westlife star Nicky Bryne.

Darcey explained: "Lisa's eyes light up as soon as she gets on the dance floor and she's such a joy to watch. Denise is technically brilliant and just glides around the floor.

"But I think Nicky will surprise us."

This 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.
