Strictly Come Dancing 2012: Dani Harmer wants to blow Craig Revel Horwood away

Dani Harmer (Strictly Come Dancing 2012)

Dani Harmer has said she hopes to blow the Strictly Come Dancing 2012 judges away tonight.

Tonight 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.

For Dani and pro partner Vincent Simone will be dancing a Charleston-Quickstep to Paul Wightman’s “Happy Feet”.

Last week Craig Revel Horwood was a bit nasty to the pair, something Dani hopes to change this week.

"I was so pleased with the performance, I actually thought I was in Venice for a bit, I loved it so much. Craig's been really nice, we've been lucky with him so he had to be mean sooner or later, I'm gutted it didn't blow him away as it was one of my favourite dances," Dani said. "I hope we blow Craig away this week."

She continued: "It's actually going well in training, I didn't think the Quickstep and Charleston would go together but they do quite well. It's not really helped doing it before, it's completely different.

"We want to be in the semis so much, it would mean the world, if I could stay in for the next two weeks I would be a very happy girl."

Vincent, who revealed the pair had an Argentine Tango lined up if they make the semi-finals, said: "We're almost there so we have to do everything it takes to be there.

"I think the judges are going to be quite severe and serious about it. I think at this stage the best dancers should get through and that's Dani!"

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.
