Abbey Clancy nervous about Strictly return

Abbey Clancy is nervous about her 'Strictly Come Dancing' return.

The 29-year-old model - who won the BBC show in 2013 with professional dance partner Aljaz Skorjanec - is set to appear on the Christmas special with Brendan Cole but admitted she isn't entirely confident in her abilities.

Abbey, mother to Sophia, four and six-month-old Liberty with footballer husband Peter Crouch, told The Sun: "It is so stressful for me to get on the dance floor. I can't handle it.

"I just want to be in the rehearsal room dancing. I am really excited. Brendan is different to Aljaz as he has a different style of teaching.

"But he has been really helpful as I am extra nervous for some reason - and he has been good helping me."

Despite her nerves, Abbey admitted that taking to the dance floor will be "a nice break" from looking after her children.

She said: "I jumped at the chance to do the special. I was really upset I couldn't do it last year because I was pregnant.

"It's amazing to be twirled around again and it is a nice break from babies and four-year-olds."
