Olympic gold medallist Victoria Pendleton has claimed that preparing for Strictly Come Dancing is taking its toll on her physique.
The 32-year-old cyclist, who won gold and silver at this summer's London Olympic Games, is used to hours of training a day but has insisted that dancing has completely changed her body.
"I spent my whole life trying to get bigger, muscly thighs and now they're just disappearing," said Pendleton. "It's going to take a bit of time to get used to. They don't look like my legs any more."
Pendleton will appear on the BBC One show tomorrow night with partner Brendan Cole.
