I’ve been very busy this week, it’s always busy on Strictly!
This week is musicals week and we’re dancing a Rumba as Aladdin and Princess Jasmine to A Whole New World. I was quite worried about the Rumba at first, but actually I’m liking it now, I think it’s good and we’ve had a lot of fun.
It’s one of the slowest dances so it’s hard to make it look good if that makes sense.
I’m dressing as Princess Jasmine. I’m not sure if we have black wig or not yet, it depends what it looks like on the night. There’s one that’s been prepared for me but I’m not sure if I’m going to wear it.
I’ve got blue pants like the ones Jasmine has in the film. It’s going to be quite cute!
Ashley is Aladdin and he’s loving it! It suits him because he’s like a kid, you can imagine, he’s cheeky and fun.
I don’t know what the others have been up to in detail but they’re all looking really good. They looked very good in rehearsals on Friday. We just have to pray that we stay in the competition.
Controlling your nerves is my best piece of advice. Nerves can get the better of you and take over. Ashley gets really nervous.
Even for me it’s still very hard. I still get nervous, even after ages on the show it’s definitely not getting any easier!
I do always make sure that my shoes are not slippery. That’s the worst thing that can happen.
Cleaning the bottom of my shoes is always the thing I do before going out to dance.
After the show I have a cheeky glass of wine to relax, just one a week though, I’m not allowed any more!
I’ve been watching Vincent on I’m A Celeb. I’ve been working a lot at night but I have been watching it online.
I love Vincent! I’m still backing him to win.I’m also getting excited for Christmas.
When I’m in Liverpool waiting for Ashley to finish work I go around the shops and it’s so Christmassy!I’m slightly panicking that my Christmas shopping isn’t done yet though – it’s not good!
There is a Christmas special of Strictly. I don’t know what I’m allowed to say about the details of the show but it’s going to be fabulous – it always is.
I won the Christmas special last year! I’m not actually involved in this one because I’m still in the competition but I’m sure there’ll be another fantastic winner.
There are four Saturdays left in the competition and Ashley and I have had quite good marks so far.
Last week we were second on the leader board which was absolutely fantastic but the competition is getting hard.
It depends what dance you have it depends what everyone else is dancing you really don’t know what’s going to happen!
