SHIRLEY Ballas accidentally gave Tyler West and Dianne Buswell a higher score than intended. The head judge, 62, picked up the wrong paddle and ended up giving the couple a seven, despite her screen reading six. Claudia Winkleman was forced to ask what score she actually intended to give and she admitted she made a mistake. The Kiss FM DJ and Dianne performed an elegant American Smooth to Falling by Harry Styles. They also attempted the challenging Angel Lift, which saw West lift and spin Buswell over his head - which secured them a score of 21. Speaking about the performance Shirley said the atmosphere they created was "stunning", but advised him to work on learning the different footwork techniques.

I started dancing when I was two years old. Well, if you can call twirling around until dizzy and falling over ‘dancing’. As I got older, I became part of an all-girls dance group and it was nothing but joy each time we danced together. That’s why the same-sex pairings on Strictly Come Dancing mean so much to me. Strictly history was made in 2020 when boxer Nicola Adams joined the show’s first same-sex coupling with Katya Jones . Then last year, chef John Whaite and Johannes Radebe took things up a notch as the first male-male pairing , finishing in second place . And for 2022, in another Strictly first, the glitzy dance show will see not one, but two same-sex couples take to the dancefloor – comedian Jayde Adams with longest-serving pro Karen Hauer, and radio presenter Richie Anderson with reigning champ Giovanni Pernice. When I first learnt that this series would feature two same-sex partnerships, I felt a mixture of emotions – including sheer joy that … [Read more...] about Strictly same-sex pairings have everything man-woman ones have to offer – if not more

Strictly Come Dancing fans were left complaining minutes into the first live show. The BBC One Latin and ballroom competition returned to our screens this weekend, with Coronation Street star Kym Marsh taking to the dancefloor to open the show. Kym and her partner Graziano Di Prima danced the Jive to Yes by Merry Clayton. However, whilst fans were thrilled to see the show back, they had one complaint to make as the live show kicked off. Kym and Graziano were given some positive feedback and constructive criticism as they stood in front of the judges. Frustrated Strictly fans took to Twitter to vent over the decision for Kym to do a Jive in the first week. "Jive on week one always feels a bit harsh to me. Thought Kym did well being first as well. Lots of potential once the nerves reduce a bit! #Strictly ," one wrote, as another added: "Wow to be given Jive week one that’s really tough for anyone to get #Strictly ." A third shared: "Always think a jive in the … [Read more...] about Strictly fans complain minutes into first live show as Kym Marsh opens 2022 series
