Strictly Come Dancing’s Stacey Dooley reveals one dance is ‘ruining her life’

Strictly Come Dancing’s Stacey Dooley reveals how one particular dance is "ruining her life."

The 31-year-old has been at the top of the leaderboard for many weeks, but sadly her Latin dances seem to always let her down as she fails to nail the technique required.

She and pro dancer Kevin Clifton opened the Blackpool episode with a sassy Samba performance, but it seems her next dance has proved to be a real stumbling block.

You guessed it – she’s taking on the Paso Doble.

To keep fans updated with what she’s up to, Stacey posted a behind-the-scenes clip where crew members chanted her name in the rehearsal room.

They screamed: "There’s only one, Stacey Dooley! Week 10!

"Dooley’s into week 10, Dooley’s into week 10, la la la la, la la la la."

But the caption revealed Stacey’s true feelings about how the week is going – and it seems she is far less optimistic than her partner and crew members.

She said: "When the Paso is ruining your life and these abso dreams pick you up"

    What does the winner get?

She and Kevin were energetic and carefree in their opening number last week, as she wore hot pink and shook her stuff to amaze the audience, and they earned a respectable 33 points for their efforts.

Shirley Ballas, the head judge, even called the dance "fantastic," while Bruno Toniolo said it was "wild and wonderful."

Craig Revel Horwood, on the other hand, criticised her legs for being too straight, though he felt her hip action was "gorgeous."

Other Latin dances impressed on the night, but it was Charles Venn’s Samba which really impressed, as it gained two 10s later in the episode.
