Lisa Riley is taking on a mash up of the Cha Cha and Tango on Strictly Come Dancing 2012 this weekend.

This Saturday the remaining six celebrities will be taking on the show's first ever dance fusion challenge, dancing two different dance styles in the same routine.

Speaking on It Takes Two, Lisa Riley teased: "We're doing the Tango into the Cha Cha.

"I'm really loving it, it's great. I love the Cha Cha and both the Tango and merging him both together as the Chatango."

Last weekend saw Lisa climb back up the leaderboard with a Quickstep to Bring Me Sunshine by Jive Aces

Lisa told It Takes Two host Zoe Ball last night that she was left overwhelmed by the positive comments from the judges.

She said: "It wascbrilliant, I loved it so much. I did make two massive mistakes but thankfully the judges didn't see! The panel were gorgeous at the weekend, we loved it."

The former Emmerdale actress added: "For Len to say Eric and Ernie were shining down on me was amazing, that comment meant a lot, I still can't believe he said that."

This week Strictly Come Dancing is on Saturday 8th December at 6.50pm with the results show on Sunday 9th December at 7.20pm on BBC One and BBC One HD.
