Louis Smith (Strictly Come Dancing)

Strictly Come Dancing 2012 favourite Louis Smith isn't thinking about winning the show.

The olympian is the favourite to win the series with the bookies but claim it wasn't "sensible" to think about taking the glittrball trophy just yet.

Speaking to The Sun today ahead of tomorrow's final, he said: “I don’t think it’s too sensible to be thinking about winning.

“At the moment, I just want to dance well and enjoy myself."

However London 2012 medalist Louis confessed he was feeling competitive and would love to be the last dancer standing tomorrow night.

He told the tabloid: "I am taking the competition very seriously and it would be incredible to win.

“It would be the cherry on top of an amazing year."

Louis added: “I’d love to do it for Flavia as well — it would be the first time she has won the show and I’m sure she would be delighted.”

Tomorrow night will see Louis and his partner Flavia dancing up to three routines, including a spectacular show dnace to Tak That's Rule the World.

But all Louis is looking forward to is relaxing with a drink.

He explained: “I haven’t been out with them for about 12 or 13 weeks because training has had to be my priority.

“I started the show trying to do lots of things but remembering the routines soon became impossible.

“I’ve cancelled public appearances, shoots and evenings out because I want to do my absolute best. Whether we win or not, it has been an amazing experience.”
