ABBEY Clancy said she is scared to the point of being "hysterical" that one of her dances will go wrong during this weekend's semi-final for Strictly Come Dancing.

Each of the remaining couples will perform a pair of dances in order to win through to the climax of the show next week.

But model Clancy -- who dances with flu-hit Aljaz Skorjanec -- said she is "petrified" of having to handle a difficult samba for one of her routines.

She said: "I really started to panic when I realised that no matter what I do, it's going to look awful. I can't believe we've got this dance in the semi-final. Everyone else is so good, I can't believe it.

"I care that much that I've gone past the point of being terrified that I'm hysterical."

Clancy is the only contestant to have scored a perfect 40 mark from the judges for her salsa but is struggling with her latest Latin dance.

"There's so many things to think about -- the bounce, straight legs, the hips and then the weird timing. I'm panicking and I just want to be able to do it. I want to be in the final," she said.
