'It's really hard!': Kirstie Alley admits she's struggling as she rolls up for Dancing With The Stars rehearsal

With less than two weeks to go until she takes centre stage, Kirstie Alley has admitted she is finding rehearsals for Dancing With the Stars incredibly tough.

The 60-year-old, who starred in the hit series Cheers and more recently, Fat Actress, has been partnered with Maksim Chmerkovskiy.

The pair were spotted arriving for rehearsals at a Los Angeles dance studio earlier this week.

'It’s really hard. You’re twisting things and he’ll go, "Just put your hips like this," but they don’t go that direction,' Alley says of their grueling rehearsals.

But Chmerkovskiy, who has been partnered with Brandy, Mel B and Denise Richards on previuos seasons, insists he is going easy on her.

'We have tape to prove that there’s no shoving,' the 31-year-old tells America's Us Weekly. 'I’m very gentle. I’m very supportive.'

The former Jenny Craig spokesperson last week revealed she is hoping the gruelling routines will help to whip her into shape.

'I've lost 60 pounds, and I have 30 or 40 more to go,' she said. 'And I think with this strenuous, rigorous dance schedule, I think it's going to work. It's exciting.'

While sources say Kirstie is 'in it to win it', she'll have some tough competition from reality TV star Kendra Wilkinson, who has emerged as an early favourite.

The former Playboy model, 25, says: 'I feel like my strength is my booty shake.

'But I can't get too caught up in my booty shake because it's the small details that actually matter in dancing.'
