Denise Van Outen

Denise Van Outen has revealed her Strictly Come Dancing 2012 training has left her in bruises.

This weekend the final five celebs will be taking on two dances each for the first time this series.

Denis admitted: "I've never had as many bruises since doing this show, I've marks all over me!"

Denise and pro partner James Jordan will be dancing the Rumba and Tango together, and it's going okay in training so far.

However James confessed: "We've only done on, the Rumba and we haven't finished that!

"I thought outside the box to try and get Craig back on side, it's a bit moe emotive, not your traditional rumba, it could be very beautiful..."

Denise said on It Takes Two last night: "It is tricky because it normally takes me 3 days to learn one dance!"

And Denise added she was aiming to make it through to the final next weekend.

She told It Takes Two host Zoe Ball: "I would love to be in the final, it would be amazing, it would be the icing on the cake. It's what we're all working for, I'd love to get there for James."

And James quipped: "I'd love to be there for me, too!"
