Strictly Come Dancing's Laura Whitmore terrified about Movie week performance

Laura Whitmore is super terrified for her movie week Strictly Come Dancing routine.

But also quite excited too.

First, let's flashback to last Saturday where Laura and her pro partner Giovanni Pernice topped the night's scores with an elegant Waltz.

Laura recalled this week: "I've never waltzed in my life, my only real association was from Disney movies like Cinderella, ya' know in that big ballroom scene when Prince Charming first meets Cinders...

"And I can tell you, when it came for me to learn it, there wasn't a glass slipper in sight. It was all tired toes and dirty ballroom shoes (I kept standing on my own toe the first day of rehearsing)."

However Laura nailed the performance and it left her all rather emotional: "Gio and I have really worked so hard this week, so to hear lovely comments was such a relief (but didn't help with the blubbering mess I was about to become).

"We got joint highest score which I couldn't believe! Giovanni is such a good teacher and has really helped me with my confidence and nerves this week."

This Saturday Laura and Giovanni will be dancing the Salsa to 'Rhythm of the Night' by Valeria from Moulin Rouge.

"I'm both excited and terrified about it," Laura said in her blog for Glamour magazine. "And let's just say the costume and make-up department are going all out for it.

"But right now it's time to say goodbye to the waltz and attempt to learn something VERY different. Gio has his work cut out for him…"

Strictly is back live this Saturday night at 6:45PM on BBC One.
