Chelsee Healey has admitted she is "nervous" about taking part in the Comic Relief Dancethon next month but is hoping to shed a few pounds while training for the charity event
Chelsee Healey is "nervous" about doing a Comic Relief Danceathon.
Despite finishing runner-up on 'Strictly Come Dancing' in the show's ninth series in 2011, the former 'Waterloo Road' star insists she hasn't been back on the dance floor for a while so is feeling apprehensive about throwing some shapes at the upcoming charity event at London's Wembley Arena on March 8.
She exclusively told BANG Showbiz: "I've not done it for so long so I'm a little bit nervous. It's an amazing idea and I think it'll be a lot fun and hopefully we'll raise a lot of money.
"It isn't ideal timing just after Christmas but that's good because we'll lose a bit of weight as well."
Chelsee will be joined by fellow former 'Strictly' stars Rachel Riley and Rufus Hound, as well as 'Strictly - It Takes Two' presenter Zoe Ball, Radio 2 DJ Jo Whiley, Got to Dance's Adam Garcia and Kimberly Wyatt, and former 'Strictly' judge Arlene Phillips, who she is hoping will help her out in the Dancethon.
The 26-year-old star added: "Arlene has a lot of dancing experience so I'm going to try to stand next to her.
"It's a brilliant group of people so I think it'll be fun to see what everyone can do.
"I'm hoping all my 'Strictly' experience comes back to me because I haven't danced for so long but I'm really excited to get dancing."
