Shirley Ballas has revealed she was ‘absolutely mortified’ that her fellow Strictly Come Dancing judges voted to send Kaye Adams home first. The Loose Women panelist was paired up with professional dancer Kai Widdrington in the BBC’s juggernaut show, competing against other stars such as Helen Skelton and Ellie Taylor. For the first live show the 59-year-old and Kai performed the Tango to Voulez-Vous by Abba and followed up with the Charleston to Music! Music! Music!. However, after scoring 43 points out of a possible eight for both weeks, Kai and Kaye found themselves in the dreaded dance-off with Matt Goss and Nadiya Bychkova. After dancing the Samba to Night Fever by the Bee Gee, the Bros star was saved by the judges Motsi Mabuse, Anton Du Beke and Craig Revel Horwood. However, on the night, Shirley revealed she would’ve opted for Kaye and Kai due to ‘a little better quality’ of performance. Reflecting on the first elimination on Wednesday’s The One … [Read more...] about Shirley Ballas ‘absolutely mortified’ Kaye Adams was eliminated first on Strictly Come Dancing

There are siren voices, there are useful idiots, and then there are car salesmen. “History is bunk,” said Henry Ford, arguing that the US should just let Germany win the First World War. Now Elon Musk, today’s auto billionaire, would apparently leave Ukraine’s fate to random polling. A bit like Strictly Come Dancing , Musk’s peace plan involves two rounds of voting: first, his 100 million Twitter followers vote on the principle, then selected populations within Ukraine can vote to accept a different national identity and join Russia. Has he forgotten the plebiscites that Hitler rigged to seize the Rhineland in 1936, then Austria in 1938? Perhaps he should poll the Czechs, too? But beyond the useful idiots are more seductive siren voices. Isn’t the Ukraine war unwinnable by either side? Can Europe go on bearing the enormous cost of its financial support? Doesn’t Crimea actually belong to Russia? Do we really want to risk Russia’s use of even one tactical nuclear weapon? … [Read more...] about Elon Musk is acting like Putin’s useful idiot
