DESPITE never having had to compete in the dance-off, Strictly Come Dancing finalist Frankie Bridge still believes she’s failed to master two of the show’s key dances.
Frankie Bridge said she hoped the Strictly final would go perfectly on Saturday while on GMB today
Speaking on Good Morning Britain today, the 25-year-old, who appeared alongside her professional partner Kevin Clifton, said: “There’s a lot going on in my head. There are three dancers, trying to remember things we did weeks ago… I’m excited, but there is a lot of pressure.
“I think everyone’s going to expect it to be perfect and the showdance to be amazing.”
When asked about two dances in particular, the mother-of-one commented: “I don’t think I’ve really mastered it. Kevin is a fantastic teacher, but I absolutely love Ballroom and Latin which I’d never done before. It’s scary.

After being asked about the all-important showdance, Frankie, who confirmed her bandmates would be there to support on the night, said: “It’s going to be pure Kevin and Frankie – everything people expect it to be. I’m really excited… It would be a nightmare if I have to do Salsa again.
The married contestant, who told the ITV1 host that she felt much more comfortable dancing in heels, had arrived at the studio in black skinnies and towering ankle boots.
Kevin, who came runner-up with presenter Susanna Reid in 2013, said: “I have had two amazing dance partners,” before joking: “I didn’t think it could get any better than last year with the wonderful Susanna Reid but Frankie has been amazing to work with and we’ve come this far.”

When asked about the couple’s dance-off last weekend, Kevin responded: “It was a really emotional night. They did such a beautiful dance and Len laid into them. So when it came down to his decision who was going to stay, I just thought that’s it. When he saved them I completely fell apart.”
Taking to Twitter earlier in the day, Frankie told fans: “5am wake up call can only mean one thing…@GMB.” However things didn’t seem to be too bad for the star, who added: “Got my mum staying with me at the minute. She’s set her alarm every morning just to get up to make me a cup of tea before I leave for work.”
