Strictly Come Dancing 2014 celebrities: Pixie Lott feels pressure as favourite

Pixie Lott

Strictly Come Dancing 2014 contestant Pixie Lott has admitted she's already feeling the pressure after being named the favourite to win.

The blonde beauty has become the bookies' early tip to win this year's competition after the line up of fifteen celebs was confirmed last month.

Speaking ahead of tomorrow night's launch show, Pixie said: "The pressure’s on because I’m favourite.

"But I just want to have a good time and go with the flow – that’s the most important thing."

The Lay Me Down singer insisted that despite previous experience, Strictly was something "completely different" for her.

She explained: "It’s completely different to going up on stage because I’m used to going up with my band and singing my own songs.

"I’m so comfortable with that, I don’t get nervous at all – I just enjoy myself and I love it. I did a little show last night and I was in my element."

And busy Pixie will have quite the hectic schedule this autumn as she plans to continue with her music career alongside the BBC One series.

She told the Daily Mail newspaper: "My single comes out next month and I’m shooting the video for it on Friday so I’m just juggling everything."

Strictly starts this Sunday at 8PM on BBC One.
