Holly Valance has claimed that she often has three baths a day during the rehearsals for Strictly Come Dancing. Holly Valance stated that the intense training has left her all bruised and battered.
The Australian star, who found herself in the bottom two last week (20 Nov 2011), said to The Press Association: "You do something every day. I've broken out in bruises, I've had a back spasm around my ribs for weeks now, which is just highly dull and driving me nuts because it just pinches in the middle of walking down the street. But everyone's got something - we're bruised and scuffed and things are going on everywhere." Valance further elaborated that the only solution for her problems would be to soak in a long hot bath: "I do probably two or three hot baths a day. I just have to soak and soak and stretch. If I get home on time or if I have a break, I just generally go and sit in one, and it's just heaven. It's the first thing I do when I get home."
Holly Valance is tipped as one of the favourites to appear at the final at the Blackpool Tower Ballroom on December 17 (2011) and favourite to even win the glitterball trophy. However, a humble Valance never likes to think about it: "I can't think that far ahead. I keep it a week at a time because it's not up to me, I can only do the hours, then it's up to the people at home." The competition continues.
