    Most 10’s but no 40 yet

    John and Johannes have scored the most 10s of the competition so far.

    They pulled off a high energy quick-step and the judges are LIVING for it.

    Shirley said John was “light on his feet”, but Craig called it “repetitive” before saying he “absolutely loved it.”

    One person who may not be celebrating is John’s boyfriend Paul who was caught ‘looking furious’ during the pair’s sexy routine a few weeks ago.

    Strictly’s Giovanni Pernice cuddles up to EastEnders star Rose Ayling

    Giovanni Pernice cuddled up to his dancing partner Rose Ayling-Ellis as they left the show’s studios last night.

    The pair thrilled fans yesterday as they discussed taking home the earliest 40 in Strictly history for their Tango to Ed Sheeran’s Shivers on It Takes Two.

    And after their appearance, the dancing duo happily posed for photos outside the studios smiling and with their arms wrapped around each other’s waist.

    EastEnders actress Rose stunned in a black velvet high-neck dress that featured ruching along the side and a thigh-high slit.

    The 26-year-old teamed the number with metallic heels and gold hoop earrings while her hair fell in a sleek style.

    Gio’s ex heading to the jungle

    Love Island star Maura Higgins is rumoured to be lined up for I’m A Celebrity appearance after her split with Giovanni Pernice.

    The latest odds from Ladbrokes currently have Maura at 7/2 to enter the Welsh castle when the popular series returns.

    Jessica O’Reilly of Ladbrokes said: “With her ex-Giovanni making all the headlines on Strictly, a stint on I’m A Celebrity would be the perfect opportunity for Maura to create her own.”

    Is she off?

    Fans are worried Katya might be about to shimmy out the door.

    Katya delivered a strange ‘goodbye speech’ on the show on Saturday night.

    It came after they received some negative feedback from Craig.

    Speaking after the performance, she heaped praise on Adam but viewers couldn’t help feel concerned after they noticed it sounded like she was saying “goodbye” to her celebrity dance partner.

    The pair were in the bottom two but where saved by judges in the dance-off.

    Could it be that Katya might be ready to hang up her dancing shoes?

    She has come under intense scrutiny once again following rumours about off-duty tangoeing with Adam – just a few years after she was caught in a clinch with then-dance partner Seann Walsh.

    Bruno Tonioli reveals he’s returning to judge the tour

    BRUNO Tonioli will be back in the Strictly fold next year for the live arena tour but fans don’t appear to be too happy.

    But many fans who have grown accustomed to Anton Du Beke, 54, on the judging panel are keen to see him on the road too.

    Anton has gone down a storm on the panel after Covid restrictions and Dancing With The Star commitments kept Bruno, 65, in the States.

    So much so that fans seem to prefer him.

    Commenting on a Strictly fan page underneath the news Bruno would be returning, someone said: “Anton for me.”

    Another commented: “Think I rather have Anton as a judge.”

    Closer than ever

    Adam Peaty and Katya Jones looked closer than ever as they left It Takes Two together.

    Their appearance comes after the pair shared an intimate late-night off-set clinch — just two weeks after their near-kiss on the show set sparks flying.

    The Olympic Swimmer, 26, was spotted in good spirits as he left the studios with his pro partner, 32.

    Adam was seen putting his Louis Vuitton gym bag in the boot of the car and helping Katya with her bags.

    The dancing duo appeared to be having a chat as Katya gazed at Adam, while he focused on putting the holdall into the car.

    Shirely Ballas’ health worries

    Shirley Ballas has revealed she is being sent for scans on all her organs after she was found to be suffering from abnormally high testosterone levels.

    In an interview with The Sun on Sunday, the Strictly Come Dancing judge said she was told by a doctor the level of testosterone in her body was “the highest she’s seen in a female”.

    Ballas told the paper: “My NHS doctor is very good, so the fact that she is concerned makes me concerned – and she was mortified by my results.

    “She said I have the highest testosterone levels she’s ever seen in a woman, and testosterone can wreak havoc on the female organs. So she’s requested an urgent scan of all of my organs at King’s College, London.

    The 61-year-old says her doctor will not speculate on the cause so she has decided to go through the scans and let her fans know when she knows anything.

    Borrowed time

    Strictly fans were not impressed to see Adam in the dance-off this week.

    Many agreed BBC Breakfast star Dan should have been there instead.

    One Tweeted: “Dan should’ve been in the dance-off, don’t know what’s wrong with the British public, Adam was involved as always amazing choreography Dan was overmarked.”

    A second agreed: “Dan is on borrowed time.”

    A third said: “Dan was overmarked.”

    Gio-va-who?

    MAURA Higgins looked unrecognisable as she transformed into Pamela Anderson for Halloween.

    The 30-year-old star looked glam in a blonde curly hair as she channeled the Baywatch babe for an Ann Summers bash last night.

    Maura ditched her dark brown locks for an altogether brighter style as she showed her – Strictly star Giovanni – what he was missing.

    The Love Island favourite showed off her trim figure in a lace-up black leather bodice.

    Twerk off

    Judi Love has issued a unique challenge to judge Craig Revel Horwood – she wants to have a TWERK OFF with him.

    Speaking to Strictly It Takes Two following her departure she said: “What I would say to Craig is that his expertise is ballroom so I would challenge him to a little twerk-off and let me lift up my scoreboard!” 

    Love was the first contestant in the history of the show to twerk during a live performance.

    Despite the challenge she said she still feels “good” and there are no hard feelings about her departure during the show’s Halloween special.

    “I appreciate all the judges, they’re professionals. That’s their expertise”, she explained.

      Nicola Adams reveals tragic past

      Nicola Adams has told of how she would try to protect her mum from a violent partner by keeping a hammer under her pillow.

      The Olympic boxing champ and the first Strictly star to dance with a same-sex partner was abused by her father from age four to 11, and was horrified when her mum started dating a second abusive man.

      Nicola was just 12 when confronted him with the weapon after a violent row, screaming: “Leave the house now or else I’m going to use it.”

      She recalled: “It was horrible. I couldn’t understand why it had happened, and I remember asking my mum: ‘How have we ended up in this situation again?’ I’d been through a lot already, and this guy was a lot bigger than my dad. I knew there was no way I’d be able to stop him if anything serious happened.

      “He wasn’t abusive towards me, just my mum. But what she went through was as bad as it was the first time. I was pretty scared.”

      Looking Rose-y

      STRICTLY star Giovanni Pernice cuddled up to his dancing partner Rose Ayling-Ellis as they left the show’s studios last night.

      The pair thrilled fans yesterday as they discussed taking home the earliest 40 in Strictly history for their Tango to Ed Sheeran’s Shivers on It Takes Two.

      And after their appearance, the dancing duo happily posed for photos outside the studios smiling and with their arms wrapped around each other’s waist.

      EastEnders actress Rose stunned in a black velvet high-neck dress that featured ruching along the side and a thigh-high slit.

      The 26-year-old teamed the number with metallic heels and gold hoop earrings while her hair fell in a sleek style.

      Bruno’s back (continued)

      But some Strictly fans are not too happy about his return.

      Anton has gone down a storm on the panel after Covid restrictions and Dancing With The Star commitments kept Bruno, 65, in the US.

      So much so that fans seem to prefer him.

      Commenting on a Strictly fan page underneath the news Bruno would be returning, someone said: “Anton for me.”

      Another commented: “Think I rather have Anton as a judge.”

      A third said: “Bruno made his choice. Stay in the US. Put Anton in the tour and series.”

      Bruno’s back

      Bruno Tonioli will be back in the Strictly fold next year for the live arena tour.

      He was forced to miss out as he is also a judge on the show’s US counterpart and cannot travel back and forth due to Covid.

      Bruno, who also missed the 2020 series of the show, is thrilled to be making a comeback.

      He said: “I am absolutely delighted to be back on the judging panel for the Strictly Arena Tour for the first time in two years.

      “I’ve missed my fellow judges, I’ve missed the glitz and glamour of the tour and I’ve missed the amazing audiences that come to see us all over the country – I hope you have missed me too.

      Best foot forward

      John and Johannes have scored the most 10s of the competition so far.

      They pulled off a high energy quick-step and the judges are LIVING for it.

      Shirley said John was “light on his feet”, but Craig called it “repetitive” before saying he “absolutely loved it.”

      One person who may not be celebrating is John’s boyfriend Paul who was caught ‘looking furious’ during the pair’s sexy routine a few weeks ago.

        Sara Davies favourite to face axe next

        Coral make Sara Davies the favourite in the betting for the next celebrity to be eliminated, at 6-4.

        Adam Peaty, who escaped through the dance-off, is rated as second most likely to be the next voted off at 2-1, followed by Rhys Stephenson (3-1).

        “Adam has a lucky escape on Saturday and will need to up his game, however Sara struggled and as the lowest scorer, is the favourite to be next eliminated,” said Aitkenhead.

        ‘Strictly SAVED my relationship’ (continued)

        Janette continued: “They called me first and asked me to join the show, I didn’t scream but my face said it all. Within 5 minutes they called him [Aljaz] straight after.

        “It was a dream come true. Getting Strictly Come Dancing was the most incredible thing, not just for my career but for my personal life and marriage with Aljaz because if it wasn’t for Strictly, I don’t know if we could have worked through the long-distance thing.”

        The two signed up to the BBC dance show for its 11th series in 2013, and got married in 2017 – with many of their fellow Strictly pros and celebrity pals attending the wedding.

        Earlier this year, Janette quit her role as a professional dancer on the show and instead hosts its sister programme It Takes Two alongside Rylan.

        Defying the Strictly curse

        Janette Manrara previously revealed that she and her husband Aljaz were on the verge of splitting before Strictly saved their relationship.

        They first met while performing in Broadway’s Burn The Floor, and toured the world together – but with the tour drawing to a close the couple faced a difficult long-distance relationship.

        While she prepared to jet back to LA, Aljaz was going to return to Slovenia.

        Speaking on the Sliding Doors podcast, Janette confessed: “The thought of doing the whole long-distance thing made it hard for us. We were very scared about what was going to happen to our relationship.”
