Strictly Come Dancing 2012: Dani Harmer confident about 'Quickston'

Dani Harmer (Strictly Come Dancing)

Dani Harmer has admitted she's feeling confident ahead of tonight's Strictly Come Dancing 2012.

This evening's latest show 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.

Dani will be dancing a Charleston-Quickstep to Paul Wightman’s “Happy Feet” with pro partner Vincent Simone and training is going well.

"We are dancing the quickstep and Charleston so we're going to call our dance the Quickston," she said. "I am struggling with the quickstep because, well the clue's in the title, it's quick and there's lots of steps.

"I think I'm slightly better at the Charleston, so if I get 5 points for that and Vincent gets 5 points for the Quickstep, that makes ten and that's what we're looking for."

We're not quite sure that's how tonight's scores will work, Dani!

It's the first time that Vincent has danced the Charleston on Strictly, and he admitted it was a bit of a learning curve for him as much as Dani.

He said: "The Charleston is a fun dance and it's all about personality and Dani has loads to say. I've never done the Charleston so it's a first for me on Strictly.

"The tricky part is to connect the two dances together, if it goes well we're going to be in the semi finals, if it goes badly then it's arrivederci."

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.
