Strictly’s Fleur East explains why she’s “worried” about the next dance

Strictly come dance‘s Fleur East is “concerned” about performing the rumba on Saturday’s (Nov. 26) show.

Talking to the radio timesthe former x factor star said it’s hard to get away with mistakes because of the “slow and controlled” nature of the dance.

When asked if she was concerned about performing the rumba with professional partner Vito Coppola this weekend, Fleur said: “I always worry because there are so many different technical elements in each dance and they are also very specific.

“This dance has so much detail and because it’s a rumba it’s slow and controlled so you can see every part of it too, so you can’t really get away with anything.”

“It’s very technical,” she added. “A lot of footwork, a lot of toes, a lot of ankle situations. And we’re doing it for the queen of rumba, so no pressure!”

Fleur and Vito will perform the rumba on the 2003 Sugababes hit ‘Too Lost In You’. Last week, they performed their couple’s dance to a Destiny’s Child megamix and received the first 40 of the series, with Craig Revel Horwood finally making use of the number 10 paddle.

Craig said, “One word, four syllables starting with F. Fab-u-lous!” While Shirley Ballas described the performance as an “iconic routine that will go down in history”.

It has since been announced that former Coronation Street star Kym Marsh and her professional partner Graziano Di Prima will not take part in the show this weekend after the actress tested positive for Covid-19.

If all goes well, the pair will return to compete on Friday, December 2 (when the live show airs a day early due to the World Cup schedule).
