Dani Harmer has impressed 'Strictly Come Dancing' judge Bruno Tonioli with the way she has developed throughout the competition

Bruno Tonioli thinks Dani Harmer has "grown up" during 'Strictly Come Dancing'.

The show's judge is delighted with the way the 23-year-old actress - who is partnered with Vincent Simone - has developed during the competition and thinks she has become a "woman" as the series has progressed.

He said: "She has [grown up]. The thing is she is very young and doesn't have much experience, but technically she has always been very good, she has always been very lean and well placed but you have to embrace different characters, each dance has a role and she is starting to do that.

"During the Argentine Tango you saw that other side to her. She never went wrong, but she played it like a grown-up, we have got a woman now."

Bruno also praised Dani for the way she has developed her performances to incorporate more than just technical accuracy.

Speaking on 'Strictly: It Takes Two', he added: "She always tries to get the footwork technically right, she pays a lot of attention to it, but now she is starting to bring the character in as well. She has always been very constant, clean and precise, but now we are starting to see a little something else."
