'Strictly' Victoria Pendleton: 'Brendan should be tougher with me'

By
Strictly Come Dancing star Victoria Pendleton has said she wants her professional partner to be "tougher" on her.

The Olympic gold medallist explained that she is used to having strict coaches while training, and thinks that Brendan Cole should be the same.

"I come from a professional sports background where people don't ask you to do anything nicely," Pendleton told the Radio Times.

"I'm used to coaches shouting at me until I do something better, so I wouldn't actually mind Brendan being tougher on me. He's nothing in comparison to some coaches I've had."

Pendleton burst into tears after performing her first dance on the show last weekend, a cha cha cha to Kylie Minogue's 'Spinning Around'.

The cyclist recently revealed that she already doesn't recognise her body as a result of training for Strictly.

Strictly Come Dancing next airs on Saturday (October 13) at 6.30pm on BBC One.
