Strictly Come Dancing 2012: Louis Smith finding acting hard

Louis Smith (Strictly Come Dancing)

Louis Smith has confessed he's finding the acting part of Strictly Come Dancing 2012 hard.

The Olympian has earned topped marks for his technical skills, but the judges were disappointed with his lack of performance at the weekend.

Speaking On It Takes Two, Louis admitted: “I knew physically it was going to be a demand, but I never really took into consideration the acting and performance, I just thought I could dance it well, learn the steps and then go out and do it.

"But there is so much more to it than just getting through the routine, but we are picking it up as we go along."

This weekend will see Louis and pro partner Flavia Cacace dancing the Charleston to Dr Wanna Do by Caro Emerald, and it's going "alright".

Louis said: “I would say it is going alright, if you were to ask Flavia she might say something different…”

But Flavia agreed: "No, no. We have enjoyed this week, it is make or break week for us so we are just going to go out there and go for it.”

However there are some big lift for the pair, and Flavia admitted: "There are some quite scary ones, I hope I live through it!”

Louis insisted: “You will, I am a professional.”

Let's hope so!

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.
