Strictly Come Dancing 2011: Brendan Cole doesn’t think he’ll have to be tough on Lulu (VIDEO)
Lulu looked aghast when she was paired with Cole on last Saturday’s launch show and in response he just picked her up, threw her over his shoulder and carried her off the stage.
However, he is hoping that is the last time he will have to manhandle the ‘Shout’ hitmaker, as he thinks she has enough drive to push herself on to give the best performances she can on the reality TV show.
Speaking during their first day of Strictly rehearsals, Brendan said:
I think Lulu is pretty tough on herself, I don’t think I’ll need to be tough with her. I think she wants to be good, she has no problem saying I want to be good, which a lot of people do, so there’s no need for me to be tough. As long as I’m here giving my best to her, hopefully she’ll get that and push herself all the way through.
All you really want from this programme is someone who is excited about learning and excited about doing something which I think is very, very special. Strictly is a big part of my life and if they’re enthused about it it makes my job much easier.
Lulu looked quite comfortable on the dancefloor and seemed to be having a whale of a time, but in a quiet moment alone with a camera, she admitted:
Before I came into the first session today, I was very apprehensive.
