Denise Van Outen has said she finds the Strictly Come Dancing results shows "terrifying" - despite doing well in the competition.

The presenter, 38, said she does not enjoy the weekly process of finding out whether she's survived the public vote.

It's "horrible. It's terrible," she said of the results shows.

"You just never know what people think of you, you know?

"The thing is, though, we've all got quite far in the competition now, so I don't think too much about staying until the end.

"It'd be nice to, but I wanted to learn the basics of Latin and ballroom, and I've learnt a little bit, so at least I can take that away with me."

Denise, who is promoting Freeview+, said she relished the overall Strictly experience: "I love it. But if you want to do well and really commit yourself to it, you have to work around the clock, and live in this little bubble.

"But I think this year's a really strong year, with so many lovely people. We haven't had one single person who's been difficult, they've all been great," she said.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Capricorn:

It feels like friends are few and far between. If you're not getting the help you need, ask why. It may be because you have been so preoccupied with work. Skipping special occasions and failing to return phone calls causes resentment. You have to be more engaged to sustain loving bonds. Call someone you've missed. It may take a few tries, but it's worth the effort. Be forthright about why you have been out of touch. Communication is the cornerstone of every healthy relationship.More
