Ugh. Where on earth did that weekend go? We didn’t move it, did you? Well, we may all be back to work tomorrow but look on the bright side. Firstly, we can continue the official countdown to the first show this coming Friday and secondly, we’ve got another EXCLUSIVE training video for you. And not just any old training video, it’s an Olympic gold of a video. That’s right; it’s Victoria Pendleton and Brendan Cole.

The golden girl joined Brendan in the dance studio as they prepared to get their Strictly campaign underway. But would the Olympic champion, famed for her dedication and high achievement, expect too much too soon? Victoria is her own harshest critic and Brendan was going to have his work cut out convincing her that she was doing well during her first lesson.

Victoria states she can't do something

You can also see Victoria’s teaser trail as well.

Victoria talks about how emotions will feature a lot in this year's Strictly.

One last thing, these two need a team name, can you think of any? If so, just note it below. You’re a star!

    Latest rumours from rehearsals on internet are that these two are doing amazingly - only thing that annoys Brendan is when his partners don't try hard enough - no problem about that with Victoria - if anything she works harder than Brendan! Have a feeling their first routine could well be 'something'.

    Victoria is going to be sensational. Her mindset and approach to life make her perfect for Strictly. Cannot wait to see the first routine.

    She's the most intresting one there for me at the moment its pretty clear that she has not had any training before so Brenden has a clean slate to work with which may mean a slower start but unlike some of the others who have had some dance training she won't have to unlearn anything. Fitness won't be a probelm and I don't think that motivation wll be as well. Its hard to tell with the sportspeople for every Colin Jackson or Mark Rampakash there is a Mark Foster or Joe Calzaghe she could go either way.

    I can't wait to see Victorias outfits. I think they could be quite daring to show off those fantastic abs.

    What a perfect partner for Brendan, this could be his year! I can't wait for his first row with Craig though, it always adds to the excitement. Victoria should do well, her athletic drive and determination will keep her focused and make Brendan a very happy man!

    At about 1.12 the very word that I thought of is the moment Brendan said it...focus. I think Victoria is having issues focussing on the basics. I know squat about dancing but for me I think it might be an idea if she channelled the movements with her body and not her mind. Let her body do the talking. I think that will of course come and it is only Day 1 but the key could be letting her body do the talking.
