Kellie Bright says she expected to be in the Strictly dance off again at the weekend.
Kellie had to perform against Peter Andre in the bottom two as both made their second appearances in the danger zone.
The judges voted unanimously for Kellie and her Salsa, which she has revealed left her bum “covered from bruises.”
Kellie said last night: “I have to say it’s the hardest week we’ve had in training by a mile.
“I was very tired, my little boy hadn’t been very well and I was just using muscles in my body that have never been used.”
She added of herself and pro partner Kevin Clifton: “We were both little old ladies in training. We changed a lift and trying to find a lift that did work, I punched him in a face about fifteen times, it was just exhausting.
“I knew the lifts would be really analysed and getting in and out of them had to be really on the money.”
After their dance the pair were in the top half of the leaderboard but slid down after the Quickstepathon.
Kevin said: “It did mess us up a little bit, the Quickstepathon. It was such a hard week, so coming third on the judge’s leaderboard with the salsa we were so made up, but then we came sixth out of seven and it put us right down there so we were kind expecting being in the bottom two.”
Kellie added: “I said to Kevin I think we should get ready to do our salsa again.”
This weekend Kellie & Kevin are performing the Viennese Waltz to ‘Oom Pah Pah’ from Oliver with Kellie becoming Nancy and Kevin the Artful Dodger.
