Pop star Pixie Lott has defended her decision to join 'Strictly Come Dancing' despite having a background in dance
Pixie Lott doesn't think her pop career gives her an unfair advantage on 'Strictly Come Dancing'.
Pixie has defended her decision to join the BBC One dancing competition after fans questioned her amateur status, following her theatre school training which included dance lessons.
Talking to BANG Showbiz at the 'Strictly Come Dancing' press launch, the 'Cry Me Out' songstress explained: "It's completely different. I think because I'm used to getting up on stage and singing my own songs with my band and I'm so comfortable that I don't get nervous at all.
"I just enjoy myself and absolutely love it, like I did a little show last night and I was just in my element. And then, doing this, is just ... I feel completely different.
"It's something different, but I'm excited I just wanna learn the skill and then hopefully I can use it in my shows in the future."
The 23-year-old star also revealed that her model boyfriend, Oliver Cheshire won't be joining her on the dance floor any time soon.
She joked: "Oliver doesn't dance, I haven't really done any practising apart from the one day I did last week, and then today - that's the only time because I've been doing shows.
"He's excited to see me do it, and hopefully he'll come down and watch."
