Strictly Come Dancing 2012: Lisa Riley finding semi-finals tough

Lisa Riley

Lisa Riley has confessed she's been finding this week's Strictly Come Dancing routines tough in training.

Just five couples remain the competition but only four can continue through to next weekend's final.

Lisa and pro partner Robin Windsor haven't been in the dance off before but the duo aren't confident, and are hoping to go out on Saturday night and get their first nine or ten marks from the judges.

For the first time this series, Lisa has been learning two routines and she confessed: "This week's been really, really tough."

Robin revealed: "Learning 2 danes is a nightmare but we've done it and they're almost ready to go out there"

Lisa will be performing the american smooth and salsa, although she's had to change somme key elements.

She explained on It Takes Two: "I love the smooth out of the two I absolutely love it, I adore it. We haven't been able to do any lifts though so we've got get our feet perfect.

"In the salsa we've got scuffs already with our tricks, we're doing it our way... the non conformist way!"

Lisa added: "We've got the public's support which is lovely but we've not had a nine or a ten, maybe this weekend which will be great."

Lisa and Robin are now hoping the public will continue to support them to get the through to the final.

Lisa said: "It'd be amazing to get to the final, more than anything, it'd be a dream come true. From start to finish it's been incredible and it's all thanks to Robin."

Robin added: "Every week she goes out there and excels, every single person loves her, she's just amazing, to go out at this stage of the competition would be such a shame, we are almost there and want to cross that line and make the final."
