Victoria Pendleton: 'Louis Smith will win Strictly'
Victoria Pendleton is confident her fellow Olympian Louis Smith will win 'Strictly Come Dancing'.
Victoria Pendleton has her "money on" Louis Smith to win 'Strictly Come Dancing'.
The gold medal winning cyclist insists there is no rivalry between her and her fellow Olympian Louis Smith contestant on the show and is even backing the 23-year-old gymnast to win the ballroom dancing competition as she believes he has what it takes to be triumphant.
When asked if there is tension between the pair, she told BANG Showbiz at the UK premiere of 'The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2': "No! I've got my money on Louis to win. He's so good - he remembers stuff like that (clicks fingers). I'm just like, 'Was it left or right? Ah!' But he's got it! He's very skilful so yeah. Louis all the way for me."
The brunette beauty, whose dancing partner is Brendan Cole, is also enjoying the flamboyant and unique costumes she gets to wear, admitting it's her favourite part of the show.
Giving a clue about her costume for this weekend live show at London's Wembley Arena, where she will be dancing the Paso Doble, she said: "It's a Paso Doble, I can do angry - I can do stern and angry! A lot easier than romantic so it's going to be fun!
"I am going to have a cape - it's going to be more than red. It might be a few other colours as well just to be on line with my previous careers. I'm absolutely loving the hair, make-up and costumes. So much fun, it's the best part."
