Loose Women panellist and Hollyoaks star Kelle Bryan opened up exclusively to OK! about how she's feeling ahead of the upcoming Strictly Come Dancing competition.
As a celebrity with two co-stars vying for the glitterball trophy, Kelle assured us she'll be tuning in this year and is "100% behind" both her pals.
The 46 year old actress revealed that her fellow Loose Women panellist Judi Love has been feeling the pressure ahead of the competition. "She [Judi] feels she's really nervous because she's completely out of her comfort zone," Kelle told us.
Luckily, Judi's got a whole host of family and friends behind her cheering her on – including her Loose Women girls.
When we asked Kelle what the vibe has been like between the women in the lead up to the competition, she added: "Oh my God, it’s amazing. Everyone at Loose is so happy for Judi. We’re 100% behind her, as all of us at Hollyoaks are with Katie.
Kelle plays Martine Deveraux in Hollyoaks alongside Katie McGlynn who joined the soap as Becky Quentin earlier this year.
We asked Kelle how she thought the pair would to in the competition and she assured us they'd be ones to watch this season.

"I think they’ll both be dark horses in the competition," she explained.
Kelle continued: "With Katie, people will fall in love with her personality. She’s so down to earth and relatable. Then there’s Judi, who’s electric! Judi will bring her personality into her dancing and that’s what will win over the crowd for her."
Writing in her OK! column about her Strictly Come Dancing journey, Judi said: "Now the countdown’s on, everybody’s asking if I’m ready to be “Strictly- ed”. I thought I was already glam, but last week I had some fittings with the show’s glam squad and I realised it’s a whole different level. I’m going to be out of my comfort zone with the costumes, but bring it on!

"I’ve done a bit of swimming in preparation – but then I think, “Oh my God, I’m doing Strictly” and have a glass of wine! So it’s going to test me fitness-wise, but I’m up for the challenge."
And a challenge it will be. Judi and Katie will have to battle it out on the dance floor for the glitterball against the likes of Tom Fletcher, Sara Davies and Adam Peaty.
With rehearsals getting underway as we speak, it won't be long until we've all got Strictly fever.
Kelle Bryan and Judi Love take centre stage in Channel 4's Black to Front event on 10 October. Watch Kelle in Hollyoaks at 6pm and catch Judi on Celebrity Gogglebox at 10pm.
