London, Oct 30(ANI): Olympic champion cyclist Victoria Pendleton has said she is finding it tough to pretend to be in love with her Strictly Come Dancing partner Brendan Cole during a performance.
Pendleton said it is hard to dance as if smitten with professional partner Cole because her mind is on her real-life love Scott Gardner.
"As lovely as Brendan is, he's not my fiance. I'm not an actress, so pretending to be in love with someone is quite hard," the Daily Express quoted Pendleton, as saying.
Meanwhile, make-up artist Lisa Armstrong revealed how she calms Victoria's backstage nerves, as she gives her boiled sweets. (ANI)
