Strictly Come Dancing 2013: Rachel Riley finding the quickstep too quick!

Strictly Come Dancing star Rachel Riley has confessed that the quickstep is just too quick for her!

Last week the Countdown star bounced back with a Cha Cha, performing with a huge pony tail.

“It was really weird, I didn’t feel like myself as soon as I had that hair, as I’ve never had hair that long at all,” she recited.

Tomorrow night Rachel and her pro partner Pasha will be dancing the Quickstep to Johnny Got a Boom Boom by Imelda May, but training hasn't been going all that well.

Speaking on It Takes Two last night, Rachel confessed: “It’s not that it’s quick, it’s just that you can fit three times more steps in so there’s so many more steps you have to remember, and to count, it’s very, very quick”.

“Well as usual, I put too much content into the quickstep," Pasha added, revealing that Rachel has a problem with her left and rights.

But he ruled out painting an L and R on her shoes, saying: “I don’t think it’s going to help, she’d be looking down all the time!"
