Soap star-turned-Strictly Come Dancing hopeful Natalie Gumede has revealed that her pro partner Artem Chigvintsev is working her so hard she keeps getting holes in her socks.
The former Corrie actress took to Twitter to let fans know how hard she is working in the lead up to the live shows, tweeting: "Paying for lack of gym time over the years in SWEAT! Never has 1minute 30 seconds hurt so much! #scd #scd2013."
She also posted a pic of some socks she had worn holes in during rehearsals, adding: "Yes, @strictlyblog - rehearsals going well! Send more socks! ;)"
It looks like all of Natalie and Artem's hard work might pay off, they are currently the bookies' favourite to win the TV ballroom dancing competition, despite the fact no one has yet seen them strut their stuff.
Natalie, however, is not so confident and has said she still has a long way to go as she has never danced professionally previously.
