Strictly Come Dancing star Pixie Lott has confessed she's been taken by surprise over just how hard the show is.

Despite the series having been on for over a decade now, Pixie admitted that she found it tough that training actually included "proper steps"!

She told TV Times magazine that rehearsals so far were "Harder than we all thought."

The Lay Me Down singer explained: "It’s like proper steps. I thought it was going to be easier, but it’s fun and everyone has picked it up."

Speaking about her past dancing experience, Pixie continued: "This is something new and we didn’t do Ballroom or Latin at school.

"I haven’t danced like that for a while, but obviously I did do dancing at school, along with the music and drama, but singing is my passion so it became my thing — as that’s what I love. "

Pixie - who is paired with new Aussie pro dancer - went on to reveal that her she spent her first day on the show HUNGOVER.

"On the first day we had our costume fittings and I was really hungover and then I came home and had a lovely curry," she said.

The Strictly Come Dancing 2014 live shows begin on September 26 and 27 on BBC One.

Other celebs in this year's show include The Saturdays' Frankie Bridge, rugby star and model Thom Evans and Radio One DJ Scott Mills.
