Strictly Come Dancing 2011 champion Harry Judd is confident that Victoria Pendleton can improve on the show as long as she conquers her nerves.

The winner of last year's Strictly Come Dancing, McFly drummer Harry Judd, believes that Olympic cyclist Victoria Pendleton has the potential to be a frontrunner in the BBC One series.

The 32-year-old, who retired from cycling following her success at the London 2012 Games, broke down in tears after forgetting steps to her routine in the first live show.

"Victoria has a lot of potential and she hasn't nearly fulfilled that," said Judd. "She did better this week but I could tell she was still nervous and she needs to conquer that."

Pendleton survived the first public vote last weekend and will take to the ballroom again tomorrow with professional dance partner Brendan Cole.
