Strictly Come Dancing star Angela Rippon has stated that the atmosphere has started to change as she arrived in Black Pool. On 18 November, the seven remaining participants of the Strictly Come Dancing will be seen on the dance floors in the seaside town’s iconic Tower Ballroom.
The 79-year-old participant of the show, Angela Rippon, who is the former presenter of the BBC show Come Dancing, which aired in the eighties, is also one among the seven.
Angela will be performing with her partner Kai Widdrington, who is an amazing ballroom dancer. She is hoping that her American Smooth with him to the Ella Fitzgerald classic Tea for Two will be a huge hit. The duo revealed that they are planning on three new lifts that will completely blow the minds of the spectators.
Last week, Angela and Kai were in a dance-off with Krishnan Guru Murthy, and both of them were given low marks by the judges. Later, they decided to vote for Angel, and the journalist Krishnan was sent home. Angela and Kai were hit with the fix claims after the judges saved her in the dance-off.
The viewers also criticized her for not having any fast dances so far, and the Bookies also tipped her as the most likely celebrity to be eliminated. But the dancer has got an opportunity to be part of the Blackpool week, which marks the most significant milestone in the reality show.
Angela Rippon receives bad news before the Blackpool show.
Angela Rippon, aged 79, made history as the show’s oldest participant when the 2023 line-up was first announced. When she stepped into Strictly Come Dancing as a participant, many were really confused if she would be able to keep up to the mark of the show. But soon, she had joined her fellow contestants in Blackpool for this week’s episodes of the BBC One show.
Angela expresses her surprise at having made it so far into the competition while adding that it was not given to her. Rather, she has achieved. After the dance-off, the judges of the reality show were alleged by the viewers that they purposefully saved Angela.
One of the viewers in X, formerly known as Twitter, wrote that it was looking like a fix, and the fans speculated that the dancer was being saved until the Blackpool week. With the support of this partner, Kai said that they did well enough and scored pretty well. He also commented that she deserves her place in the Blackpool.
But the duo seems to have bad news before their performance in the Blackpool as bookies marked them as the losers of the weekend. The 79-year-old broadcaster and 28-year-old ballroom dancer have been leaving the audiences with mind-blowing performances. The couple was more popular because of Angela’s incredible age-defying dance routines.
Lately, it seems that luck is running out for the duo on the most celebrated popular reality dancing competition on BBC. Angela and Kai have been in the dance-off for the previous weeks, and the bet maker has now predicted that the duo will be in the bottom two for this weekend, too.
In a previous dance-off, the couple was saved as the judges voted for them against Krishnan Guru Murthy. But this time, the judges may not be able to save the two in the dance-offs if their performance is not fair enough. The bet makers also predicted that Ellie Leach and her dance partner, Vito Coppola, are now in the topmost position and may win the entire show.
Some of the followers of the show were annoyed by the dance choices for Angela this week as the couple will be performing a slow dance, which the fans feel can be overscored by their opponents. Even when many suggest that this will be the last weekend for the couple on the show, they are focusing only on the performance in the Blackpool show.
