"Putting it on reminded me how excited I am about marrying Scott - I can't wait", she told the Radio Times about the wedding next summer. "I wanted us to get married two years ago and now feel like I've been waiting to marry the man of my dreams for ever. First there was the Olympics and now Strictly, but as soon as I leave the show I'm going to turn all my attention to the wedding. "Victoria, who languished near the bottom of the Strictly leaderboard this weekend, added: "The good news is that I won't make a complete fool of myself during my first dance on our wedding day. I've tried to teach Scott a few of the steps in our kitchen, but I think it would be lovely to do a proper waltz, so I will definitely be enlisting Brendan's help with the choreography.

"I never imagined my wedding day when I was a little girl, so when I started organising it for real I didn't know what I wanted... What I do know is that I don't want anything too fancy - absolutely no over-the-top dresses or carriages or 50 bridesmaids. I want a simple, elegant do. "She joked of her wedding dress: "The one thing I will tell you is that it won't have any chiffon wings. I don't want to accidentally strangle Scott during our first dance. "Victoria's fiancé Scott recently spoke out after she bowed out of her career as an Olympic athlete to wed the love of her life. "I'm looking forward to the two of us walking our dogs, Jonty and Stella, together. I've saved up two years on that front, so I think I've earned it," he told the Telegraph. In fact, both of them have.

When the couple fell in love while the wheels were spinning, the fallout was intense. Scott resigned from his post and Victoria's team mates blamed her for the loss of one of the team's most respected mentors. But their steadfast love has silenced the critics and Scott, now re-instated, is the man who proudly supported the competitor dubbed 'Queen Victoria'
