Caroline Flack has confessed taking part in 'Strictly Come Dancing' has made her feel like she's starring in 'Dirty Dancing'
Caroline Flack feels like she is starring in 'Dirty Dancing'.
The former 'Xtra Factor' presenter is incredibly excited to be taking part in 'Strictly Come Dancing' - on which she is partnered with professional dancer Pasha Kovalev - because she can't help but think of the classic movie, which starred Jennifer Grey and the late Patrick Swayze.
She said: "'Strictly' is basically 'Dirty Dancing'. That's the only way I can explain it.
"And Pasha is Patrick Swayze - look at him. He's like, 'Step on the two' and I'm like, 'Eeek! It's 'Dirty Dancing'! Eeek!' "
Caroline admits she is "in awe" of her dance partner - who is dating 'Countdown' beauty Rachel Riley - and his graceful moves.
She said: "I watch his hips and think, 'God, you're so beautiful.' I've never been in awe of ballroom dancers before. He's been doing this since he was eight. Eight! He's amazing. And patient."
Unlike other contestants, the gruelling rehearsals haven't made Caroline lose weight, but she says she leaves practice every day feeling "high".
She told Look magazine: "I haven't lost weight but I feel different. You get these endorphins. I leave the studio on a massive high every day. It's like I'm high on dance."
