STRICTLY Come Dancing star Caroline Quentin has admitted she will cry if judge Craig Revel Horwood slates her performance.
Caroline, 60, will be taking to the dance floor next month when the hit BBC show returns but she is feeling rather nervous.
Asked how she will deal with the live shows, Caroline admitted: "I am feeling quite trepidatious about the live show, I can’t pretend I’m not.
"I do suffer quite badly with first night nerves when I’m in plays. So it probably takes me quite a long time to get rid of the shakes and I get feel quite nauseous.
"That might be something I have to overcome. I will give it my best shot and do everything I can do to stay in and learn."
Commenting on how she feels about being criticised, she added: "I hate it; I’m not going to like that at all.
"I don’t know how I’ m going to react, I’d either fight back or run away and cry."
Of course, 55-year-old Craig is known for his scathing feedback and has been known to get into arguments with contestants and their professional partners.
Caroline went on to admit that she hopes her profession as an actress will come in handy for certain performances.
"I am really hoping that when I get onto the more of the dramatic dances that I won’t be too embarrassed to really go for it," she said.
"I’m going to try use that stuff to cover up for any nasty foot work or bad arms."
Asked how far she thinks she will get in the 2020 competition, the Men Behaving Badly star replied: "I just want to win – I’ll just enjoy myself and when I they get sick of me they will just throw me away, that’s showbiz."
Caroline will be competing against the likes of Max George, Nicola Adams and Jamie Laing when Strictly Come Dancing starts this month.
