Strictly’s Stacey Dooley says hormones almost ruined high-scoring Paso Doble

Strictly Come Dancing ‘s Stacey Dooley has revealed that she was worried her Paso Doble would end in disaster because she was feeling "hormonal".

The 31-year-old documentary maker scored a near-perfect 39 for her dramatic routine with pro partner Kevin Clifton on Saturday.

However, appearing on spin-off show It Takes Two today, she opened up about her worries about the performance.

Admitting that she had felt panicked before the performance, she told Zoe Ball that she feared that they would have to do the routine again.
