Strictly Come Dancing's Carol Kirkwood says the dance she's most looking forward to doing is the waltz.

Kirkwood and her professional partner, Pasha Kovalev, will be performing a Viennese waltz this weekend.

"We're doing the Viennese waltz this weekend and I'm really thrilled about it," Kirkwood told the Press Association. "With the waltz, I love elegance and grace, and all these things. I think it's nice to see a lady in that way, and it's just such a beautiful dance."

She and Kovalev will be dancing to Seal's I've Been Loving You Too Long.

Professional dancer Kovalev, who won the show last year with Caroline Flack, praised her focus.

"I think Carol is really focused on what she's doing and what she wants to achieve, and so there's no moment when she'll say I want to take a break or take a day off, because that's not an option," he said.
