A w-hole lot of rehearsals for Colne Strictly Come Dancing star Natalie Gumede!
NATALIE Gumede has been rehearsing so hard for Strictly, she’s got holes in her socks!
The 29-year-old, who played villain Kirsty Soames in Coronation Street, tweeted a picture of her socks which were littered with holes after an intense training session with her professional dance partner, Artem Chigvintsev.
The former Colne Park High School pupil said: “Danced so much I wore holes in my socks - but we’re still smiling.”
The next day, another sock picture appeared with the words: “Another pair of socks smashed through!”
She then tweeted a third picture, on Tuesday night, with her fingers poking through holes in yet another pair of socks.
This time the caption read: “Yes, @strictlyblog - rehearsals going well! Send more socks! ;)”
Luckily, Natalie has now been given her professional dancing shoes, so her socks are safe for the time being.
Natalie is in constant training, and the star is certainly being put through her paces.
Yesterday lunchtime she tweeted: “Paying for lack of gym time over the years in SWEAT! Never has one minute 30 seconds hurt so much!”
Her partner Artem has also been keeping fans of the show updated.
On Tuesday, he tweeted a picture of the pair in the rehearsal studio with the words: “Working hard!!!”
But it hasn’t been all work for the star. Natalie has also taken time out to enjoy London Fashion Week, and enthused about the dresses on parade at designer Julien Macdonald’s catwalk show.
She has also been spotted sipping cock- tails with her fell-ow Strictly cont-estants. Natalie is still the bookmakers’ favourite to lift the trophy. The contest gets underway in earnest on September 27.
