'Strictly Come Dancing' contestant Caroline Flack has compared the celebrity ballroom competition to 1987's classic movie 'Dirty Dancing'
Caroline Flack compared 'Strictly Come Dancing' to 1987 film 'Dirty Dancing'.
The TV presenter is a contestant on the 12th series of the celebrity ballroom competition, and she admitted it sometimes feels like she's part of the iconic movie.
She told the London Evening Standard newspaper: "'Strictly' is basically 'Dirty Dancing'.
"That's the only way I can explain it. And [Pasha Kovalev] is Patrick Swayze - look at him!
"He's like 'step on the two,' and I'm 'eeek! It's Dirty Dancing! Eeek!' "
However, when the stress - of her both her professional and personal lives - get too much, it's not the 1980s classic she turns to.
Caroline has admitted she is a huge fun of horror movies, and she enjoys the adrenaline of "fear" to get "rid of anxiety".
She added: "I watch horror films, if I'm having a bad day because fear takes away every other feeling. I will open the window to make it extra scary. Seriously.
"It's a great technique for getting rid of anxiety, frustration or sadness. I just scare myself s***less. And then I go to bed thinking, 'oh no, I wish I wasn't so scared!'"
