Former 'Strictly Come Dancing' contestant Chelsee Healey is convinced Abbey Clancy and Natalie Gumede will make the final this year, despite having only seen them dance once
Chelsee Healey is predicting Abbey Clancy and Natalie Gumede will make the final of this year's 'Strictly Come Dancing'.
The former 'Waterloo Road' actress - who finished in second place on the 2011 series of the ballroom dancing show - was blown away by the two girls' first dance and believes they are good enough to go all the way despite only seeing their skills once.
Speaking at the Inspiration Awards at Cadogan Hall in London last night (02.10.13), she exclusively told BANG Showbiz: "I think Abbey and Natalie will make the final. Abbey was amazing and Natalie smashed it - those two I thought were really brilliant. I hope a girl wins this year because it's been two boys the last two years so it would be nice if one of the girls could take the trophy home and that, for me, will be either Abbey or Natalie."
Although she thinks the winner will come from one of the two girls, Chelsee is supporting her former 'Waterloo Road' co-star Mark Benton, who is dancing with Iveta Lukosiute.
She added: "I would like Mark to get to the final though, because I've worked with Mark I've got to support him."
The sexy 25-year-old star has also just tuned into the BBC show again as she couldn't bring herself to watch it last year because she was missing the thrill of ballroom dancing so much.
Chelsee admitted: "This has been the first year I've been able to bring myself to watch it since I went on. I couldn't watch it last year because I just wanted to do it again."
A host of celebrities were in attendance at the Inspiration Awards - which recognises the achievements of remarkable women who inspire others with their achievements in everyday life or through the media - including Lorraine Kelly, 'Made In Chelsea' star Spencer Matthews, 'Loose Women' host Andrea McLean, 'The Apprentice' contestant Luisa Zissman and 'TOWIE' babe Lucy Mecklenburgh.
