Lisa Riley finds it "weird" going from the 'Strictly Come Dancing' rehearsal room to the live performance and always fears she will forget her steps

Lisa Riley is always convinced she will "forget" her 'Strictly Come Dancing' routines.

The former 'Emmerdale' actress - who is partnered with professional Robin Windsor on the show - admits it is "weird" going from the rehearsal room to the live performance, and she is plagued with nerves before taking to the dancefloor.

She said: "I have to watch Robin's feet so I can learn all the dances. It's weird going from a dance room with no windows, then 600 people in the 'Strictly' bubble. It's mad to think there are millions watching at home!

"I can't explain it. We both get nervous but you have all different kinds of emotions, like I think I will forget all the steps and the hard work."

Lisa loves being on the show, particularly because of the easy bond she has formed with her dance partner.

She explained to "If I had someone like Anton, I mean he's phenomenal, but he's very Russian and mysterious, whereas me and Robin have a funny relationship. We have a lot of laughs together."

Lisa will return to fight for her place in 'Strictly Come Dancing' tomorrow (08.12.12) night.
