Molly Rainford said being on TV as an adult was “totally different” than when she was a kid, but added that she’s still “just as nervous.”
The singer and former Britain’s Got Talent finalist said performing live with Strickly Come Dancing was “probably a little scary” but was a “great experience”.
Reinford, 21, has teamed up with professional dancer Carlos Gyu in the popular BBC dance competition and narrowly avoided elimination last week after finding himself in a horrifying dance-off.
In 2012, she placed 4th in the 6th series of the 11-year-old BGT, losing out to dancing dog acts Ashley and Pusey.
Ahead of Saturday’s upcoming Strictly show, she said:
“Now that I’m an adult, I know all the risks, so it’s probably a little scary, but I feel the same tension whenever I sing or dance – so that doesn’t change.
“But it’s better to do it with a partner than to do it alone, and it’s nice to know that Carlos will help you if you make a little mistake. How to fix it”.
According to Rainford, her fellow BGT contestants tell us it’s nice to see her “back on TV” doing something “outside your comfort zone.” But show boss Simon Cowell wasn’t.
Rainford and Goo will perform an Argentine tango to Kate Bush’s “Running Up That Hill” during Saturday’s Halloween Week live show.
Strictly Come Dancing continues on BBC One.
