Natalie Gumede admits Strictly makes her look old

Coronation Street actress Natalie Gumede has admitted that competing on Strictly Come Dancing has not only made her look slimmer, but it’s also made her look older!

With 11 weeks of the competition already behind her Natalie, 29, has confessed that she’s feeling absolutely exhausted admitting, ‘I’ve toned up but I do feel I’ve aged. I think it’s because I’m so tired. I feel like I’ve lived two years on Strictly.’

And it’s no surprise that Natalie has been left feeling tired. The shows contestants rehearsing for a minimum of seven hours a day not to mention the fact she’s dealt with health problems throughout the competition including when she fainted last night and had to be rushed to hospital just hours before the show.

‘I feel very, very vulnerable. Even after 30 or 40 hours of training. We’re not at the stage where we will be consistently good. You know things can go wrong,’ she added.

You don’t seem to be doing too badly to us Nat!
