Victoria Pendleton Says Her Days Are Numbered On 'Strictly Come Dancing'

'My Days Are Numbered'

Victoria Pendleton has admitted she feels her days are numbered on 'Strictly Come Dancing'.

The retired Olympic star avoided the dance-off this week despite finishing towards the bottom of the judges' leaderboard with her paso doble on Saturday.

Writing in the Radio Times she said she had been surprised to have lasted longer than a fortnight in the show, and admitted she had little chance of competing against show favourites Louis Smith and Denise Van Outen.

"I don't think I will last much longer, especially when I look at the likes of Louis and Denise," she said.

"I don't know how much more I can actually improve. In short, it would take a miracle for me to pick up that glitterball trophy."

The Radio Times cover star went on: "The other day, I also felt a pang and realised that I haven't ridden a bike in weeks. I didn't think I would, but I've really missed it."

She said she has a "proper girl's bike" which has a basket on the front, and she is looking forward to riding it with her fiance around her home near Wilmslow in Cheshire.

Victoria said she may be feeling a little "broody" after meeting her dance partner Brendan Cole's pregnant wife Zoe.

"It made me coo so much," she added.
