Dani Harmer believes her stint on 'Strictly Come Dancing' has helped her deal with her split from boyfriend Graeme Livingstone
Dani Harmer says 'Strictly Come Dancing' has helped her get over her heartbreak.
The 'Tracy Beaker' star split from boyfriend Graeme Livingstone just before the start of the BBC One show and says being able to focus on her dance routines means she doesn't get upset about the break-up.
She said: "Dancing is definitely the best way to get over a break-up. It's helped shift my focus and take my mind off it. Strictly's awesome and has helped me a lot.
"It's so much easier to concentrate on the dance steps without having a man to constantly text and take calls from. So I've got the advantage over the attached contestants. It could mean the difference between me winning and losing."
Dani also says she loves working with professional dance partner Vincent Simone and thinks they make a great team.
She added to Reveal magazine: "It's going really well! Vincent is the best man in the world. He's an amazing dancer, brilliant teacher, he's patient and we giggle all day long so it makes it fun. He never tells me off, or gives me 'homework' - we dance all day as it is. I couldn't do any more if I tried!"
