'I can win Strictly,' says Hollyoaks star Ricky Whittle

Monday December 7, 2009

Despite having to dance for survival on Saturday, Hollyoaks star Ricky Whittle is still confident he'll win the show.

"I think if you're going to enter a competition you should always believe that you have a chance of winning or you should at least want to win, otherwise what's the point of joining?" the actor says.

"My dad used to say when I was younger 'If you're not going to go all the way why go at all?' and that's been something that I've always grown up on.

"And so I'll always give it 100 per cent and try and make every dance a show dance, and try and make it a show-stopper because it could be my last."

At the weekend, judges voted to keep Ricky in the competition while former Footballer's Wives actress Leila Rouass bid farewell.
