Denise Van Outen is worried she and 'Strictly Come Dancing' partner James Jordan are going to get into trouble - because they're both "mischievous".
The blonde TV presenter was paired with the outspoken professional during last night's (15.09.12) launch show and she admits the judging panel may not be impressed with their behaviour.
She said; "We'll get told off because we're both mischievous. I'm a right show-off and I'll get carried away. We'll have a lot of fun."
James - whose dancer wife, Ola Jordan, was paired with former 'EastEnders' star Sid Owen - added: "Denise is very funny. We clicked straight away because we've got a similar sense of humour."
Olympic cycling champion Victoria Pendleton was partnered with show veteran Brendan Cole and she was vowed to stand up to judge Craig Revel Horwood if he criticises her.
She said: "If I get nasty comments, which I expect early on, I won't get tearful. I'll say to Craig, 'Well, why don't you get on a bike, and let's see what you've got.' "
Girls Aloud singer Kimberley Walsh was partnered with Pasha Kovalev, while Westlife singer Nicky Byrne got Karen Hauer.
TV presenter Fern Britton was thrilled when it was announced she would be dancing with Artem Chigvinstev, while model Jerry Hall and actress Dani Harmer were paired with Anton du Beke and Vincent Simone respectively.
Former England cricket captain Michael Vaughn will partner Natalie Lowe and Olympic gymnast Louis Smith will be taught to dance by Flavia Cacace.
Showbiz reporter Richard Arnold will dance with Erin Boag and Johnny Ball got last year's winner Aliona Vilani. Actor Colin Salmon was partnered with Kristina Rihanoff while actress Lisa Riley will dance with Robin Windsor.
'Strictly Come Dancing' returns to BBC One on Saturday October 6.
