Strictly Come Dancing kicks off this weekend and while some of the female contestants, such as Abbey Clancy and Sophie Ellis-Bextor, look full of confidence and are raring to go, others are more than aware they they have a few, erm, shortcomings.

Vanessa Feltz has expressed her worries about how her weight is going to be a hindrance to her performance. Of course she has.

"Age, weight, lack of talent ... but no lack of desire. I hope the judges give me a chance - Craig (Revel Horwood) pitched in before I'd even done a step," she told Radio Times.

She's also worried about being dubbed the 'comedy' act like Anne Widdecombe and John Sergeant before her, but her professional dance partner, James Jordan, assured that she won't be.

"I want Vanessa to be reassured she won't look silly. We're not going to do comedy. We want to do proper dancing," he said.

Everyone loves the one that dances a bit funny, Vanessa, it's not a bad thing. Plus, we all know size doesn't matter because Lisa Riley was an absolute star last year.

How do you think Vanessa will do?
