Ex-Emmerdale star Lisa Riley admits the scariest thing about Strictly is… the fake tan.
‘I’m worried about looking like an Oompa Loompa!’ says the size 16 actress.
‘Everything in the UK is fake.
‘You’re allowed to be orange, have fake lashes and fake boobs.
‘I don’t care if people call me fat or Emmerwhale, I’d rather be myself than a lump of fakeness.’
In fact, honest Lisa, 36, says she only agreed to do Strictly for her mum, who died from cancer earlier this year.
She explains: ‘I think she’ll be on my shoulder with me every step of the way.’
