Denise Van Outen wants to get pregnant after she has finished with 'Strictly Come Dancing'
Denise Van Outen plans to get pregnant when 'Strictly Come Dancing' is over.
The 38-year-old actress - who has two-year-old daughter Betsy with theatre star Lee Mead - admits she is keen to expand her family, but only once her commitments to the BBC show are over.
She said: "We'll wait and see what happens after 'Strictly'. I will hopefully be in great shape and in a good physical position to be pregnant."
However, Denise - who is teamed with James Jordan - admits she has struggled with rehearsals for the programme and aches constantly.
She added: "It's been a shock to the system. I ache all over! But I like that feeling after a workout, when you have a spring in your step.
"I've not done much exercise since I went on a charity cycle across India with Lydia Bright from 'TOWIE' in March. It's been tough, but hopefully it will get easier."
Denise's other concern is that of the fan-bases of competitors including Louis Smith and Kimberley Walsh, and she knows she will have to work hard to impress viewers.
She told Closer magazine: "Kimberley has a big fan-base, as do Westlife's Nicky Byrne and Team GB stars Victoria Pendleton and Louis Smith, so it's going to be tough. But I want to work hard, dance as well as I can and enjoy it."
