Louis Smith's bum problems
Louis Smith admits his "bum cheeks" are sore from rehearsals on 'Strictly Come Dancing'.
Louis Smith's "bum cheeks" are very sore from 'Strictly Come Dancing' training.
The Olympic medal-winning gymnast - who has been partnered with Flavia Cacace in the celebrity dancing contest - admits the strenuous preparations for the show are already taking their toll on his body.
He said: "After the first bit of training for 'Strictly', my bum cheeks were so sore. So much pain."
The 23-year-old sportsman also admitted he is not in as good shape as he usually is because he has been relaxing since the Olympics.
He added: "I spent two weeks in Marbella after the Olympics and I haven't been in the gym for two months."
Meanwhile, fellow Olympian Victoria Pendleton admitted she is worried about the complex choreography that partner Brendan Cole will create.
She told Reveal magazine: "I don't know if my leg muscles will help for dancing, to be honest. I think I'm fit enough to deal with the training - the choreography will be the hard part.
"I actually woke up last night trying to remember the steps. And standing up straight will be a challenge when all you want to do is watch your feet."
