Patsy Kensit hasn't trained ''at all'' for 'Strictly Come Dancing' this week, blaming her filming schedule with 'Holby City'
Patsy Kensit hasn't trained "at all" for 'Strictly Come Dancing' this week.
The actress blames 18-hour days filming her final scenes for hospital drama 'Holby City' for stopping her practicing for the show, making her think she'll be first to leave this weekend.
She said: "If I get through this weekend then that would be great - but I think I'll be going home.
"Last week I had no training time whatsoever before the first live show - I'd had 10 days prior to that.
"And then this week we haven't trained at all. I don't even know that we have a routine for Saturday!"
Despite saying her waltz had been "thrown together" last week, Patsy and dance partner Robin Windsor scored 22 points, putting them ahead of Paul Daniels and Ola Jordan; Peter Shilton and Erin Boag and Ann Widdecombe and Anton Du Beke.
Meanwhile, ex-England goalkeeper Peter has said he thinks he can win the competition, despite being the bookies favourite to go this weekend.
He told the Daily Mirror newspaper: "I don't take a lot of notice of odds. Somebody has to be voted off, but I don't want it to be me. I want to progress from here, like Chris Hollins, who had a slow start last year. I'm sure if I stay in the competition there is more I can do on the dancefloor."
Although he gained the lowest score of the evening last week, Paul remains popular with the show's female viewers.
Hunky rugby player Gavin Henson is reportedly upset that the 72-year-old magician gets more fan mail than he does.
A show source told the Daily Star newspaper: "Gavin has been having a right old moan, saying Paul's been inundated with letters. Paul might be 44 years older than him, but he's going to give him a run for his money. Gavin is really competitive, so he's hacked off that Paul's fan sack is bulging."
