Strictly Come Dancing 2012: Denise Van Outen confused by Tango

Denise Van Outen (Strictly Come Dancing)

Denise Van Outen has admitted her Strictly Come Dancing 2012 semi-final routines have left her confused.

Just five couples remain in the competition but only four will make it through to next weekend's final.

Tonight will see the celebs left standing dancing two routines each, and it's putting pressure on both the stars and their pro partners.

Speaking from training, she said: "I do feel like I'm a little bit confused in the Tango. I don't know whether my heard should be a sharp right or left.

"James said he's leading me and I should just follow him but I'm not very good at following."

Denise and James' second routine is a Rumba to The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face by Leona Lewis and it's going slightly better.

Denise explained: "Our rumba is very romantic, I really do have to draw on all my acting skills because I have to pretend I'm in love with James.

"I really have to use the emotion to get across what a lovely romantic dance this could be."

James added: "The Rumba is a really difficult dance because it is so slow, the most important thing, Dense has to connect with the dance, myself and the music."

Will the pair pull it off on tonight's show?

Strictly Come Dancing continues this weekend with the semi-finals on Saturday 15th December at 6.30pm with the results show on Sunday 16th December at 7.30pm on BBC One and BBC One HD.
