Kimberley Walsh has admitted that she is loving her time on Strictly Come Dancing.

The Girls Aloud singer was partnered with hunky dancer Pasha Kovalev on last Saturday’s results show and began her rehearsals for the first live show earlier this week.

Speaking in a new behind the scenes video, the blonde beauty confessed:

“It’s really exciting to get a glimpse of what I’m going to be doing for my first dance. Right now we are kind of having a bit of fun and doing a few basic steps and having a bit of a dance but it’s going to seem a lot more real when we start the actual routine.”

She added:

“For our first live performance we are doing the cha cha cha whihc is going to e really fun actually. I’m glad it’s something uptempo. I can let myself go a bit and dance.”

“Pasha seems to think that I pick things up quite quickly which is good…it didn’t really feel like that to me though…”

Kovalev is happy with Kim’s efforts so far and he said:

“It was the first day of training with Kimberley today and it went pretty well. First I didn’t know what to expect from this rehearsal and i was just trying the ground and trying to give her different steps to see how she can pull it off.”

“This girl has character for sure. I was throwing stuff at Kimberley and making it more difficult every time and she kept up.”

The performer added:

“At this stage it’s hard to predict if Kimberley and I will win but I’m really excited about the next three months!”

After watching the snippets of Pasha and Kimberley dancing together in the video above we have to confess, we are getting quite excited about seeing their first dance on the 5th October.
