Darcey Bussell 'frustrated' by Strictly layabouts
Darcey Bussell will be "incredibly frustrated" if a celebrity competitor on 'Strictly Come Dancing' does not live up to their potential
Darcey Bussell has promised to be a hard judge on 'Strictly Come Dancing'.
The 43-year-old ballet star - who is replacing Alesha Dixon on the panel - admits she will be "frustrated" if she sees a celebrity performer who she knows could be doing better, and will not be afraid to tell them if she is disappointed.
She said: "I will be desperately annoyed if somebody has potential, but they don't know the music or haven't given themselves enough time. That will be incredibly frustrating."
Darcey will join Len Goodman, Craig Revel Horwood and Bruno Tonioli on the BBC show, which this year is rumoured to feature Jodie Marsh, Charlie Brooks, Chris Evans and Sally Bercow.
Professional dancer Brendan Cole previously stated he was very happy to have Darcey as a judge, and didn't believe Alesha - who left to be a panellist on 'Britain's Got Talent' - would be missed.
He said: "Will Alesha be missed? No, I don't think so. Everybody brings their own bit to the show I think. I'm very happy Darcey is part of the show I think it's great - she's knowledgeable, she's one of the country's most loved dancers."
