Caroline Flack has been accused of underplaying her dancing skills ahead of this year's 'Strictly Come Dancing' after it was revealed she has also appeared on the BBC Three show 'Dancing On Wheels'
Caroline Flack has been accused of underplaying her dancing experience.
The former 'Xtra Factor' host- who is set to compete in this year's series of the hit BBC One show 'Strictly Come Dancing' - also appeared on the BBC Three series 'Dancing On Wheels' in which she partnered a contestant in a wheel chair.
However, Caroline insists the show - which was choreographed by 'Strictly' stars Kristina Rihanoff and Brian Fortuna, and judged by James and Ola Jordan - was more of a "documentary-style programme" rather than a means of improving her dance skills.
She told The Sun newspaper: "I did Dancing on Wheels but that was more of a documentary-style programme. It was different."
The 34-year-old TV presenter added that she has gained her only ballroom skills by dancing around the kitchen with her boyfriend, Jack Street.
She explained: "Me and my boyfriend have done a bit of dancing in the kitchen but that really is about it."
Meanwhile, Caroline - who also attended a dance school in her younger years - has admitted that competing on the show is a dream come true.
She said: "Ever since I was a presenter on CBBC and used to see the Strictly judges walking around Television Centre I have wanted to take part in the show."
