Strictly Come Dancing news: Dani Harmer's emotional week

Dani Harmer (Strictly Come Dancing)

Strictly Come Dancing's Dark Pony Dani Harmer has admitted she's had a crazy week ahead of the final.

The 23-year-old has gone from a favourite to be eliminated to a favourite to win, and it's been emotional.

The bubbly youngster said: “I’m really excited. This week has been crazy, exhausting and very emotional for me.

“You put your heart and soul into these dances and you just want to do your partner proud. So tensions run high and there have been a lot of tears.

“It comes mostly from frustration because I can’t get the hang of a step or a lift. And I’ve been juggling Strictly with panto rehearsals."

Speaking to The Sun, the petite actress said: "To be in the final is a dream come true. It means we have taken this experience as far as we possibly can – and I am so happy about that.”

The Tracy Beaker star added: “Things like this normally don’t happen to me. I’m just a normal girl from Bracknell, so I don’t tend to be wearing ball gowns and performing in front of millions! I don’t want it to end. But I know where Vincent lives, so I’ll knock on his door and force him to dance with me.”

Bless, we can't help but love Dani!
