Denise Van Outen is keen for her close friend Kimberley Walsh to win 'Strictly Come Dancing', despite competing for the Glitterball trophy herself
Denise Van Outen wants Kimberley Walsh to win 'Strictly Come Dancing'.
The TV presenter is also taking part in the BBC One show and while she is one of the favourites, Denise is keen for the Girls Aloud star and her partner Pasha Kovalev to lift the Glitterball trophy in December.
She said: "I love Kimberley to bits - we climbed Mount Kilimanjaro together for charity. I want her to win - her and Pasha make a great partnership."
Denise - who is partnered with James Jordan - also says the criticism she's had over having too much dance experience to take part has also hurt and was glad when she didn't top the leader board in the first week.
She told Reveal magazine: "Some people were saying I would be favourite to win because I've done West end shows, but I was fifth on the leader board. I'm relieved that people can see I've really struggled, because I've felt a lot of pressure on me."
