Helen George is performing to Adele on Strictly this week and she's rather worried.

Last Saturday Helen once again produced high marks from the judges with a score of 35 for her Halloween themed performance dressed as a mummy.

She enthused: "I had so much fun and I loved the hair and make up, it sort of transformed the dance, the fun of Halloween, it was a brilliant night."

This week, Helen will be dancing the Rumba with pro partner Aljaž Skorjanec and she's hopeful to keep the scores high.

"[The judges] haven't mentioned anything about my wooden hips for a couple of weeks so I'm hoping they're just forgetting about that slowly," Helen remarked.

She also joked: "I'm paying [Craig Revel Horwood] lots of money to say nice things, when it gets to Craig I'm expecting him to say something nasty and I'm sort of still waiting!"

She added: "The thing with this competition, you can be top one week and then bottom the next. It's really hard to call, you're never safe."

The Rumba is often considered the hardest of Strictly's dances and is the one that no celebrity couple has ever managed to score top marks in.

For Helen there's extra pressure with the Call The Midwife star dancing to Adele's new single Hello.

"I can't believe we've been allowed to dance to this beautiful song and it's pressure, everybody is singing this song and you don't want to do an awful dance to it" Helen said.

Aljaz added: "We need to do it justice."

Strictly Come Dancing airs this Saturday and Sunday night on BBC One.
