BBC Strictlys Angela Rippon admits shes cross as she addresses show backlash

Strictly: Angela was ‘cross’ with herself over dance-off

Angela Rippon admitted she felt “cross” with herself following her latest performance on last week’s Strictly Come Dancing.

She faced the dreaded dance-off with her partner Kai Widdrington and was forced to take to the floor again.

Judges Shirley Ballas, Craig Revel Horwood, Motsi Mabuse, and Anton Du Beke unanimously voted to save Angela, meaning it was time for actor Adam Thomas and his partner Luba Mushtuk to say goodbye to the show.

Appearing on Tuesday’s Strictly spin-off series, It Takes Two, Angela and Kai chatted to host Fleur East about their save last weekend.

“Wonderful to see you – let’s get right into it, OK,” Fleur stated. “Your first red-light moment…”

“Yes…” Angela replied before Fleur asked: “How did it feel for you to be in that position, Angela?”

“Oh, it was really upsetting, I was cross with myself, I think,” the 79-year-old admitted.

She continued: “Yes, because clearly, I hadn’t done everything that Kai had been drumming into me during the week.

“But at the same time, I think as I said on the programme, the upside to that is we get to dance to it again.

“And normally, of course, you don’t so it was lovely to be able to do it again.”

“Exactly, two for the price of one, Angela,” Fleur laughed.

The presenter added: “Were you nervous going up against Adam and Luba? Seeing as they’d survived the previous week’s dance-off.”

“Well, I think with the situation we’re in at the moment, the pool is getting so small now.”

She went on: “There were nine of us, there’s eight of us now which means if there’s only going to be three people in the final then you know, every week it gets tougher and someone is going to be the one who is going to be eliminated.

“I mean, what was tough about it was of course Adam was such a lovely guy and we all absolutely adored him.

“We’ve all become great friends and so when you are the other person in the dance-off you know you’re going to battle it out with someone who’s become a mate. It’s tough, it is tough.”

“I know that feeling all too well, Angela,” Fleur responded.

Strictly Come Dancing continues on Saturday at 6.05pm on BBC One.
