Daisy Lowe's fear that she might be the first celebrity voted off the new series of Strictly Come Dancing is motivating her to work harder in rehearsals.

Daisy Lowe is terrified of being the first celebrity voted off Strictly Come Dancing.

The 27-year-old beauty is just one of the famous faces set to vie for this year's (16) Glitterball trophy. The stunning brunette has been working hard with professional partner Aljaz Skorjanec in rehearsals, but admits the thing she is most nervous about is being the first casualty of the new series.

"I’m so nervous I just don’t want to fall over or be eliminated first," Daisy told the Daily Mirror. "I’m terrified something awful will happen, like I’ll lose a shoe on the dance floor or split my costume.

"But this is the chance of a lifetime and I don’t want to mess it up."

Daisy's dance partner Aljaz is no stranger to victory - having won the competition in 2013 alongside model Abbey Clancy.

The Slovenian is also a patient teacher, Daisy added.

"I’m in safe hands with Aljaz, he’s been very patient with me," she smiled.

Daisy was speaking to the publication as she attended the GQ Men of the Year Awards in London on Tuesday night (06Sep16). Despite having a late night at the annual ceremony, Daisy was up bright and early for rehearsals for the opening show.

"Daisy is really committed and the fear of going out first is really driving her on," a source told the publication. "She has potential to be a great Strictly contestant and really wants to learn."

Birds of a Feather star Lesley Joseph, Olympic medal-winning long jumper Greg Rutherford, EastEnders star Tameka Empson, Anastacia, Louise Redknapp and Will Young, presenters Laura Whitmore, Ore Oduba and Naga Munchetty, politician Ed Balls, radio DJ Melvin Odoom, actor Danny Mac, gymnast Claudia Fragapane and TV personality "Judge" Robert Rinder are the other celebrities all hoping to impress on the dance floor.
