"I finally feel like a princess for the first time in my life. Nobody can explain how I feel right now. I spend my life playing mingers and all of a sudden I feel like I'm in Dynasty," Riley told The Sun.

"The glam squad make you feel like a million dollars and the response I've had has been overwhelming. My fears have been conquered.

"I never thought I would get the reaction I did out there. If I can inspire one woman to get up and dance, then I've done my job.



"To see Robin's reaction last night was priceless and I want to do him proud again. I'm not expecting the same scores. If I get four fives I will be happy but I won't lie - I would like more!"

Riley added that she believes Strictly is a gift sent from her late mother Cath, who lost her battle with breast cancer in July.

The former Emmerdale star recently revealed that her pole dancing skills secured her a spot on the show.
