Laura Whitmore has been in tears all week training for Strictly Come Dancing.

Her pro partner Giovanni Pernice spilled that things had been painful for the pair in rehearsals.

This weekend is Movies night on Strictly and Laura and Giovanni will be dancing the Salsa to 'Rhythm of the Night' by Valeria from Moulin Rouge.

Gio quipped on It Takes Two: "She's been crying all the week."


Laura explained: "It's the first time I've done lifts, it has three lifts and we've practised them a lot. I didn't realise until I got home they cause a bit of damage."

The TV presenter - who shared pictures of her nasty looking bruises on Twitter yesterday - added: "I just smile throw the pain."

While Laura has been struggling with the steps, Gio's having his own problems with the routine.

He revealed to Zoe Ball how Laura's sexy costume was leaving him with mouthfuls of feathers during lifts.

The routine is very different to the pair's Watlz from last week which Laura LOVED.

She told Zoe Ball on BBC Two: "I really enjoyed doing it, I think from the first week I was so nervous so I just wanted to go out and enjoy it, and be in the zone of the song.

"To go out there and just go out and dance it and just be happy afterwards. I didn't actually care what the judges would say because I enjoyed it."
