Lulu has called in TV hypnotist Derren Brown to help her remember her Strictly Come Dancing routines.

Derren gave the 62-year-old tips so she wouldn't forget her moves during a training session with professional dancer Brendan Cole, the Daily Mirror reported.

A Strictly source was quoted as saying: "Lulu struggled in the first week, then she and Derren got chatting.

"She asked him to her next session and he ran her through some mind techniques to improve her memory for the complicated routines.

"He also helped her deal with pre-show nerves. Last weekend was her best-ever score, so it looks like something has clicked."

Lulu scored 26 out of 40 last weekend for the rumba.

Chief judge Len Goodman told her: "Every week you've got better and better, well done."

She has said of joining the BBC One show: "This is something completely out of my comfort zone."
