Countdown presenter Rachel Riley: Strictly 'pretty terrifying'

Strictly Come Dancing contestant Rachel Riley has said performing on the hit BBC show is "pretty terrifying".

The Countdown presenter, from Essex, and her partner Pasha Kovalev scored 22 points on Saturday and she was told by the judges she had to fight to stay in the show.

This week they are hoping to impress the judges with the American Smooth.

Gareth George went to see her and her partner in training.
