Steve Backshall and Ola Jordan

Steve admits injured foot impairs his chances

Strictly Come Dancing star Steve Backshall has revealed that he is at a disadvantage on the show due to an old injury, which means he has no movement at all in one of his ankles.

Following a horrific accident which also saw him break his back in two places, the wildlife presenter had to have his left ankle “fused” to repair it – meaning he cannot even point his toes on that foot.

Robin Windsor ''very likely'' for Christmas special

Injured Robin Windsor has revealed he’s “very likely” to return to Strictly Come Dancing in time for this year’s Christmas special.

The 35-year-old dancer was forced to bow out of the latest series due to crippling back pains, but he’s now been cleared by doctors and hopes to be back in the ballroom as early as December. Robin was in the audience for Saturday’s Strictly and met with show bosses about his comeback.

Len Goodman

Craig: Anton could replace Len on Strictly panel

Less than a year after Sir Bruce Forsyth was replaced on Strictly Come Dancing by Tess Daly and Claudia Winkleman, I hear that there is already talk of a younger model usurping Len Goodman’s seat on the judging panel.

Indeed, Craig Revel Horwood is already hinting that Anton Du Beke, one of the show’s professional dancers, may soon be taking over from Goodman, who at 70 is the oldest remaining member of the Strictly team. “My money’s on Anton du Beke joining the judging panel,” Craig none-too-diplomatically tells Woman magazine in his weekly column. “He could become the fifth judge, or he might take over from Len, if Len ever retires.”

During Saturday’s show Tim, with pro-dancer Natalie Lowe danced a dramatic Paso Doble to Tina Turner’s ‘Simply the Best’. Unfortunately the judges didn’t think Tim’s best was good enough, despite some nifty cape work.

Sunetra Sarker and Brendan Cole

Wardrobe malfunction! Brendan splits trousers

Brendan Cole managed to split his trousers at the crotch level during an energetic performance on Strictly Come Dancing last night. The New Zealander was left with a gaping hole in his pants after he took to the dance floor with partner Sunetra Sarker.

After the pair finished dancing the 38-year-old moved on his knees to the judges table and then got up and showed off his split trousers.

Caroline Flack and Pasha Kovalev

Jake and Caroline top the leaderboard

EastEnders star Jake “Snake Hips” Wood was top of the leader board again after a hip-swiveling jive that had the audience roaring and the judges scoring him 33/40. “The energy and performance was absolutely awesome,” Craig Revel Horwood told Jake of his dance with his pro partner Janette Manrara.

“A full-on, dynamic performance,” added Len Goodman. “You went from the Queen Vic to King of Rock ’n’ Roll.” TV presenter Caroline Flack had her best round, also scoring 33/40 and so joining Jake in first place.

Judy Murray and Anton du Beke

Judy struggles not to laugh at Anton

Strictly Come Dancing star Judy Murray has admitted that learning the tango was a struggle. She admitted that every time she tried to look passionate with her dance partner Anton Du Beke she bursts out dancing.

Judy confessed: “I get the giggles. “He’s great fun, he’s got such a good sense of humour. And when he’s coming towards me and very close, I just dissolve into giggles, which is absolutely not what you are supposed to do.”

Judy Murray and Anton du Beke

Judy Murray on Strictly

When my boys were younger I used to tell them to “shake like a jelly!” before their matches, so they’d feel loose and relaxed. However much I shake my arms and legs before stepping on to the Strictly dance floor, I just can’t seem to shake off my nerves.

The moment I hear the dreaded words “Judy Murray and Anton du Beke dancing...” I freeze. That one moment of doubt, fear and hesitation is disastrous. It’s not like tennis, where you can lose the first set but go on to win the match.

Sunetra, from West Derby, scored 40 out of 50, her best score yet on the show’s Hollywood-themed weekend, even taking into account the marks from guest judge Donny Osmond, who said: “I had a smile on my face the entire time you were dancing”.
