Strictly Come Dancing 2012: week five behind the scenes video

Denise, Dani and Victoria on their upcoming dances - plus, their professional partners on how they rate them this week


Ahead of Saturday’s show, some of the Strictly celebs have been backstage sharing their thoughts about their upcoming dances.


Denise van Outen admits she found her Halloween cha-cha “very difficult” but says she’s looking forward to the potentially dizzying twirls of this week’s Vienesse waltz.

Dani Harmer tells us she’s “really excited” about her favourite dance, the jive, while Victoria Pendleton is nervous about her samba, given her track record with Latin dances. “I’m hoping for no wardrobe malfunctions,” she says – “and hopefully, I remember the steps.”
