'Strictly' making me fatter, says Victoria Pendleton
Victoria Pendleton has revealed that since she swapped her gruelling cycle training regime for the lesser demands of Strictly's dance practice, she has lost her fitness and has become fat.
The 32-year-old-Olympic champion, who got back on a cycle to fly through the studio on wires for her 'Strictly Come Dancing' routine, can't wait to get back on a real bike.
"I've lost 5kg of muscle mass and I am a little bit fatter... not as lean," the Mirror quoted her as saying.
"I've never been more unfit in my life. I'm not happy about it," she said.
