Zöe Lucker has admitted that she stopped dancing regularly following the end of her Strictly Come Dancing commitments.

The actress was a contestant on last year's series of the BBC ballroom show and also took part in its live arena tour throughout January and February.

However, speaking in an interview with DS, the star confessed that she was not able to enjoy dance as a hobby once the stadium jaunt concluded.

Lucker explained: "I don't know where to go! Where would I go to practice? I can't really go down the local community centre for salsa classes or anything like that!

"The brilliant thing about Strictly was that I got to dance with James [Jordan] - he's such a gorgeous man and a brilliant dancer. The one-on-one teaching was what I loved the most.

"I'm terrible in group situations - I've been to one aerobics class in my life and I was terrible. I couldn't keep up! I don't know how to keep it up, apart from trying to dance on my own in my bedroom - which makes me sound really sad!"

Lucker recently signed up for a role in BBC soap EastEnders and will be seen in the part for the first time tonight.
