Strictly Come Dancing 2016: Daisy Lowe was actually pleased to be in the dance off


Daisy Lowe has admitted she was sort of happy to be in the Strictly Come Dancing 2016 bottom two at the weekend.

Daisy and pro partner Aljaž Skorjanec found themselves having to perform again in a bid to survive the axe on Sunday night.

Their Charleston on Saturday had impressed the judges and left them with a strong 32 points.

"I had one of the best weeks my whole life, I've never giggled and smiled so much," Daisy said.

But it wasn't quite enough as the pair were left having to dance again, which actually pleased Daisy.

"It was one of my worst fears realised but it was the calmest I've ever been through a results show," she revealed tonight. "I was genuinely pleased I got another shot at dancing it as I was annoyed [I made mistakes]."

Aljaz told how he encouraged Daisy: "I always say to daisy when we go on to perform, it's just the two of us, we do exactly what we did in rehearsals.... if we didn't do it in rehearsals, don't do it!

"I was genuinely impressed. Daisy got through the dance off without any mistakes, she did it better than she did on Saturday night."

Daisy and Aljaz were saved from the axe but that came at a cost with Lesley Joseph and Anton Du Beke going home.

Daisy admitted: "It was so bittersweet, I just felt awful.

"She's been such an inspiration to all of us. She's been up at 5AM working and performing incredibly. I'm going to miss her so much, I'm gutted.

"You feel like it's your fault as well."


This week Daisy and Aljaz will be dancing the Paso Doble to Santa Esmeralda version of ‘Please Don’t Let Me Be Misunderstood’.

The remaining ten couples will take to the dancefloor once more next week when Strictly Come Dancing returns on Saturday 29th October at 6.45pm.

And one more celebrity will leave in the latest results show on Sunday 30th October at 7.15pm on BBC One.
