Strictly Come Dancing 2011 winner Harry Judd has backed Victoria Pendleton to win this year’s series.

The McFly star predicted that the Olympic Gold medal winner could be “incredible” if she lost her nerves.

Judd told The Sun: “Victoria has a lot of potential and she hasn't nearly fulfilled that.

“She did better this week but I could tell she was still nervous and she needs to conquer that.

“Nerves get you focused, so it's about not letting them get the better of you.”

He added: “You'd have thought I'd be asking her because she has nerves of steel when she's performing as an athlete!”

Judd also revealed he thought Denise Van Outen and Kimberley Walsh were “both amazing” and had a good chance of winning.

Pendleton had a disastrous first week on the show after she let nerves get the better of her and finished bottom of the leaderboard after forgetting the steps to the cha cha cha.

Week two was an improvement as she and partner Brendan Cole took to the floor for a foxtrot and managed 26 points.
