Strictly favourite faces shock exit this week after being dealt terrible blow by producers, say fans
STRICTLY Come Dancing fans are fearing a fan favourite could be in trouble after landing one of the most difficult dance routines the series shows.  As the remaining 10 couples are heading into week seven of the competition, and after the shock elimination of EastEnders’ James Bye and Amy Dowden last week, it’s clear no one is safe.  Ellie Taylor and Johannes Radebe topped the leaderboard during the Halloween special, doing a Couples’ Choice routine inspired by Hocus Pocus to I Put A Spell On You.  However, fans are fearing that this may be a high coming before a fall, as they’ve now been landed with the difficult rumba.  The Cuban dance, which is characterised by slow and determined hip movements, passionate storytelling and requires immaculate posture.  Strictly rumbas have proven to either make or break partners during their stint on the show – and it hasn’t gone unnoticed by fans.  “Absolutely thrilled for Ellie and Jojo, although I sadly sense the glittery trap door next week with that rumba,” wrote one, before adding, “more than happy to be proved wrong.”  “Ellie and johannes rumba who else is scared?” said another.  While another took a quote from Whoopi Goldberg and said: “ellie t, you in danger girl”  Strictly is going back to basics this week after two back-to-back themed episodes.

Strictly’s Richie Anderson teases Zoe Ball about 'mystery man' as he discusses pro partner
BBC Radio 2 presenter co-star Zoe Ball guessing on her breakfast show today after he mentioned his mystery partner on Strictly Come Dancing.The star refused to reveal the identity of his dance partner on the dance show, but Zoe, 51, said the Radio 2 team “might have figured out” what routine he might be doing first.Richie, who provides travel updates on Zoe’s show and who is a self-described Strictly super-fan, gave some insight into how he was feeling ahead of the show today.“How are you feeling today, Richie?” Zoe asked the former footballer.“You’ve done three days of training with your mystery Strictly partner.”“My mystery man!” Richie added excitedly, although he wouldn’t give anything more than that away.Richie is the second male celebrity to compete on the show in a same sex pairing, following in the footsteps of Great British Bake Off winner John Whaite last year.John made it to the final episode of the competition with partner Johannes Radebe, coming second to EastEnders actress Rose Ayling-Ellis.“How’s the body feeling?” Zoe probed Richie, attempting to find out more about his Strictly preparations.“I feel like I’ve done a Zumba class, but one of those ones where they sponsor you for 24 hours,” he joked.“But I’m feeling fitter! I’m walking up the stairs here now!”“And are you remembering the steps of the mystery dance that you’re going to be doing?” Zoe asked.While Richie confirmed that he was “getting there”, he wouldn’t reveal any more than that for fear of dropping any obvious hints.Zoe then said: “We keep watching him going to the coffee machine to see if we can get some clues.“We think we might have figured out what it is he’s doing,” she added cheekily.
