'Waterloo Road' actress Zoe Lucker has picked Jake Wood as the winner of 'Strictly Come Dancing'
Zoe Lucker thinks Jake Wood will "definitely" win 'Strictly Come Dancing'.
The 'Waterloo Road' actress - who came tenth on 'SCD' in 2009 - has already pinned the 'EastEnders' star as the winner of the BBC One dancing show.
Talking to Digital Spy, Zoe said: "I think he's probably got tough competition but I think he's going to win, definitely!"
The 40-year-old actress then admitted that before she saw him on the dance floor, she couldn't picture Jake enjoying the tango.
She said: "I know at one point he did mention 'Strictly' to me. I'd done it myself before then and it was the year that Scott Maslen [who plays Jack Branning on 'EastEnders'] was doing it. He asked me, 'What do you think about it?' But I couldn't imagine Jake doing it.
"I think he'd been thinking about it for quite some time, and obviously the time came when he just decided to go for it."
However, Zoe - who once played Jake's on-screen girlfriend Vanessa Gold on 'EastEnders' - then revealed that despite her initial doubts she has been thoroughly impressed with Jake's performance on the show.
She said: "I texted him last week saying, 'You're outstanding and I'm so excited for you. He's just amazing and who knew? He's brilliant."
