Denise Van Outen would like Kimberly Walsh to win Strictly Come Dancing if she doesn’t lift the Glitter Ball Trophy herself.

With her consistently high scores, including a couple of 10s, Denise Van Outen is the hot favourite to win Strictly Come Dancing this year.

However, if her salsa suddenly turns cold or cha-cha-cha becomes a bit yawn-yawn-yawn, Denise is backing Girls Aloud star Kimberly Walsh to take the title. She said: “If I don’t win Strictly Come Dancing I would like to see Kimberly Walsh win because we are very good friends. I love her to bits and I will be just as happy for her to live that Glitter Ball as I would if I won myself.”

Speaking about her plans for Christmas Denise revealed: “I love Christmas time and for me it is all about being with the family and of course this year my husband is in panto and we are going to go and watch him.”

She added: “On my Christmas wish list I would like to have a onesie because I like to being really cosy on the sofa watching TV.”
