Strictly Come Dancing 2016: Daisy Lowe reveals backstage shock over dance off


Daisy Lowe has admitted she almost couldn't perform in the weekend's Strictly Come Dancing 2016 dance off.

The model was in the bottom two again on Sunday night with pro partner Aljaž Skorjanec.

Despite a passionate Paso Doble, and a series high score for the pair, it was their second time having to perform for the judges to stay in the competition.

Although we almost had another dance off controversy as Daisy has revealed she initially felt she couldn't do the routine again.

In Sunday's results show we saw Daisy visibly panicking after being announced as in the dance off for a second week running.

"I had just turned to Alajz and said 'I don't think I can do that dance again'," Daisy confessed on It Takes Two.

Of course we know they did eventually perform again and Daisy was all the better for it.

"I was really pleased I got an opportunity do it better because I felt I hadn't done it as well as I could have and I really went for it," she said.

Speaking of her routine in the Halloween special, Daisy raved: "I loved it, I loved that Paso. It's such a passionate dance.

"It was difficult coming to terms being aggressive or tough because I'm not like that naturally but once I got my head around it, I loved it so much. I had the best time."

However she admitted: "On Saturday I felt I didn't do it as well as I did in rehearsals though."

But Aljaz encouraged: "It's always tough, I did know on Saturday that Daisy did an incredible job, again I wasn't being easy on her with the steps and the choreography.

"There was some really tricky footwork in that whole routine. I loved the whole dance, it's one of my favourite dances I've ever done on Strictly actually."

He added that he "didn't know" why Daisy was in the bottom two again.

"I think Daisy comes in every single week and works so far and the steps I'm throwing I are very difficult, every single week. I just want her to get better every week," he said on BBC Two.

After being saved unanimously by the judges, this week Daisy and Aljaz will be dancing the Viennese Waltz to ‘Daisy Bell’ by Harry Dacre.

"We haven't been in hold for four weeks and feels good to be back in hold, it's comforting, it's like the womb," she quipped.

"I think everyone's going to love it," teased Aljaz.

Strictly is back at 6:55PM Sunday night on BBC One.
