Strictly Come Dancing 2012: Denise Van Outen putting most hours in

Denise Van Outen

Denise Van Outen has been putting the most hours into her Strictly Come Dancing 2012 performance this weekend.

Tomorrow night will see 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.

The six remaining celebs have put in some quite differing amounts of training this week, with Denise Van Outen top of the leaderboard.

The West End singer has been in rehearsals for 25 hours so far this week (up until Thursday night), five hours more than the next closest celebrity in the training leaderboard.

After James Jordan forgot his routine at the weekend, it's probably for the best.

Speaking on It Takes Two last night, Denise teased: "I've put sticky notes on him like right shoulder left leg just so he knows what's doing."

At the other end of the table and Louis Smith is bottom, with just twelve hours logged, less than half that of Denise.

Having topped the leaderboard with his first tens last week, perhaps Louis is getting a tad complacent!

Meanwhile Denise has also put in the most hours of any celeb so far this series, having spent a whopping 326 hours in training so far.

It's 27 more hours than Lisa Riley in second place and over 100 more hours than Dani Harmer, who's bottom of the leaderboard.

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.
