BUSY BINGLE VOWS TO WOW JUDGES

Lara Bingle is determined to prove the judges wrong after copping a barrage for her performance on Sunday night's Dancing With The Stars.

Bingle's commitment was questioned by Todd McKenney after she admitted learning her dance in 24 hours.

"We've seen one Lara in four weeks," McKenney said.

"I know everyone is busy, but you've got to do better than that. If you haven't got the time get out."

Bingle said the comments would drive her to improve.

"At the end of the day constructive criticism is good," she said.

"I guess they do understand how hard we are working, but no one really knows the hours. We're trying really hard and it makes me more ambitious for next week."

Bingle donned a white wig for the quickstep routine with partner Carmelo Pizzino.

She said the pair decided to create a character for the fast-paced dance.

Bingle was also upbeat having regained her driver's licence during the week.

"I can pick Carmelo up now, which is good," she said.

"I usually ride to training but we might be able to go to different studios now."

Bingle said it was a relief to safely go through to the next round after being in the bottom two last week.

"That was the most nerve-racking thing," she said. "I felt so sick last week, but we were pretty blessed this week.
