Sophie Ellis-Bexter has joked that she already has her Strictly Come Dancing victory speech prepared.

The singer is the favourite to win the show having already topped the leaderboard twice this series.

And the competitive performer admitted she’d love to lift the glitterball trophy this year.

“I’d be happy to win anything. I’ve got my acceptance speech and outfit prepared,” she told the Metro newspaper.

The ‘Murder On The Dancefloor’ hitmaker also told the tabloid that she scared her pro partner Brendan Cole when it came to the live shows on Saturday nights.

She explained “I think I scare him [Brendan Cole] because I’m quite relaxed during the week and then about ten minutes before we dance I suddenly start going a bit potty. It’s really scary.”

And Sophie, who releases her new album later this year, added that any previous dance training she had wasn’t helping.

“I did ballet and it was all good toes and naughty toes. Doesn’t help with the cha-cha,” she said.

Strictly continues next Saturday night on BBC One.
