Victoria Pendleton has enlisted Brendan Cole to help her with her first dance to fiance Scott Gardner
Victoria Pendleton wants 'Strictly' partner Brendan Cole to help her with her first dance.
The Olympic gold medallist plans to wed fiance Scott Gardner next year, and has enlisted the professional to make sure they are both able to impress their guests.
Discussing wearing a wedding dress on the show, she said: "Putting it on reminded me how excited I am about marrying Scott.
"I feel like I've been waiting for ever.
"First there was the Olympics, now 'Strictly' - but as soon as I leave the show I'm turning all my attention to the wedding.
"I won't make a fool of myself during my first dance. I've tried to teach Scott some steps in our kitchen.
"It would be lovely to do a waltz, so I will be enlisting Brendan's help."
Victoria - who has become well known for crying in the BBC series - also reveals she has picked out her wedding dress already.
According to The Sun newspaper, she said: "I've chosen something simple and classic. It won't have chiffon wings - I don't want to accidentally strangle Scott during our first dance."
