Strictly Come Dancing 2012: Lisa Riley looking forward to quickstep

Lisa Riley (Strictly Come Dancing)

Lisa Riley can't wait to get back to the fast dances on Strictly Come Dancing 2012.

Saturday night saw Lisa and pro partner Robin Windsor slated by the judges for their lacklustre rumba, although Lisa enjoyed it!

She said this week: "I absolutely loved it and was genuinely so proud of the dance, we can't keep doing funky fast ones, we did have a story and it was such a shame they [the judges] didn't pick up on it.

"I think everyone knew by my face on Saturday I was disappointed. I've put that to bed and it's onwards and upwards to the next dance."

Robin really wasn't impressed, telling It Takes Two last night: "What did they [the judges] expect, backflips? It was technically the best dance Lisa has done for me."

This Saturday the pair are taking on the quickstep and Lisa's revealed it's very quick indeed!

She said: "I'm loving the quickstep, it's so fast, I feel like a trotting horse! And we've got something very special for the end.

"It really is fast and the footwork is intricate, it went well in training in Monday but Thursday might be a different story."

Lisa told Zoe Ball: "I just want nice comments, we've been to Wembley and it was wow, we had a little dip last week and hopefully we can get back up there.

"As long as I go out there every Saturday and know I've tried really hard and made myself proud then I'm happy."

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.
