Laura Whitmore has said she's "sh***ing it" ahead of Strictly Come Dancing.

The TV presenter, who used to front I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here's spin-off show, is one of fifteen celebs on this year's line up.

And while she's one of the favourites to win, Laura doesn't have high hopes.

“I’m sh***ing it, I’m nervous — I’m everything you can imagine about Strictly. I’m so out of my depth,” she admitted this week.

While Laura says she has (unprofessional) dancing experience, her trademark moves don't exactly lend themselves to ballroom.

“I’ve always danced, not professionally, of course, but I’ve always done it," she explained “I’m crazy dancing Laura. I’m always dancing — it’s just that I haven’t honed those skills yet. I don’t have those disciplines. I’m so excited to learn.”

Laura added: “Taking part in Strictly, you get the chance to train with a professional every single day — it’s amazing."

On the red carpet for this year's launch, the TV host wrote on Instagram: “Although the nerves are kicking in, I couldn’t stop smiling yesterday! Working with wonderful people behind and in front of the camera. Feeling happy X #bbcstrictly."

Strictly Come Dancing starts this Saturday night on BBC One at 6:50PM.
