Charlotte Hawkins hasn't learnt Strictly Come Dancing routine

Charlotte Hawkins is still struggling to learn her routine for her "Strictly Come Dancing" dance floor debut.

The "Good Morning Britain" presenter is expected to perform in front of the nation for the first time with her professional partner Brendan Cole tomorrow (23.09.17) night, but she has admitted she still can't master the moves and is having a hard time keeping her balance during the twists and turns.

Uploading a video of her and Brendan practicing on her Instagram, the blonde beauty said: "I don't know how people dance like that without falling over. I think the thing that's going to be tricky is some of the steps, even the turning around looks really straight forward and Brendan does it and you're like "yeah that looks easy!" [Then] you go to do it you can't even balance, you're falling over, you haven't got the right foot..."

And to make matters worse, the 42-year-old star is suffering with a sore neck after two weeks of training.

Speaking on "GMB" on Friday (22.09.17), Charlotte's co-star Kate Garraway said while speaking to last year's winner Ore Oduba: "She did come in and say she has a sore neck!"

But Charlotte isn't the only one having difficulty with her routine as her fellow competitor Gemma Atkinson admitted earlier this week that she almost burst into tears on her drive back from training because she was struggling to remember the steps and could sense her partner Aljaž Škorjanec was getting tired.

She explained: "I nearly cried on the way home.

"I thought I'd got the dance nailed and I tried to do the steps and I kept doing them wrong. I hate letting people down, and I could see know knackered Aljaž was. I knew what to do in my head but I couldn't do it with my feet, to the stage I just sat on the floor and went I can't do this!"
