Strictly Come Dancing 2013: Rachel Riley loving the outfits!

Rachel Riley (Strictly Come Dancing 2013)

Strictly Come Dancing 2013 star Rachel Riley has confessed the outfits have been her highlight so far!

The Countdown star told the Metro newspaper that she loves getting dressed up every weekend in custom made dresses.

"The wardrobe department make all these outfits in just a few days," Rachel revealed. "Then you try them on and they’ll alter them. They are very clever putting in hidden support. You know you are going to go out there feeling comfortable.

"I love the outfits. For my 21st birthday party I had a Strictly themed fancy dress."

This week Rachel and her pro partner Pasha Kovalev will dance the American Waltz to 'I Put a Spell on You' by Screamin' Jay Hawkins, and Rachel has the heaviest dress the show has ever seen in its decade long history.

"My outfit this week is covered in rhinestones. It’s the heaviest dress ever. Hopefully it will help keep my shoulders down because I won’t be able to lift my arms," Rachel said. "Once this is over there will be nothing that can match it."

Meanwhile, Rachel confessed she's not cried yet on the show despite being in the bottom two last month, but conceded it was just a matter of time.

The TV presenter said: "I have not cried yet. I’m sure I will."
