Strictly Come Dancing 2016: Claudia Fragapane is DESPERATE to make the final


Claudia Fragapane is super keen to make it into the Strictly Come Dancing 2016 final next weekend.

The gymnast is one of four celebs remaining and tonight will be dancing twice to make the cut.

One more couple will be heading home and Claudia REALLY doesn't want it to be her.

Speaking ahead of the latest live show, Claudia revealed how Strictly had given her confidence and she "doesn't want to stop now".

“I am actually really surprised because all the other celebs that have been doing it are really talented. I’m really thankful that the public has wanted me to stay in the competition this long,” said Claudia.

Speaking to the Express, the Olympian continued: “It means a lot because starting the competition I wasn’t so confident in myself, and now I’m more confident as a person and loving all my time, and enjoying the moment. I love dancing and have improved so much. I just don’t want to stop now.”

This week Claudia and pro-partner AJ Pritchard will be dancing the Rumba to ‘Bleeding Love’ by Leona Lewis and a Quickstep to ‘When You’re Smiling’ by Andy Williams.

Claudia said: “We’re performing the Rumba and Quickstep so we’ve got two dances to learn, and it’s really hard being a gymnast and having that Rumba kind of feeling to it, you have to move your body more.”

The remaining four couples will return to the dancefloor in the semi final of the competition on Saturday 10th December at 6:50PM.

Then on Sunday 11th December at 7.20pm on BBC One one more celebrity will leave the competition in the latest results show.
