Strictly Come Dancing 2017: Debbie McGee in trouble after ANOTHER injury stops training?

Strictly Come Dancing 2017: Debbie McGee in trouble after ANOTHER injury stops training?

Paul Daniels’ widow has been unable to practise her lifts for the BBC show with partner Giovanni Pernice after hurting her back.



The 59-year-old has admitted that she was even unable to get up about her seat after rehearsing ahead of her Salsa to I Can’t Take My Eyes Off Of You by Boys Town Gang.

Speaking about the routine, Debbie commented: “Our narrative for the salsa is that I’m an optician and I’m giving Giovanni an eye test. I’ve had to work much harder with this dance.

“The hip wiggle is a figure of eight and you’ve got to make sure that the fringing on your dress moves about!”

However, Debbie continued: “We’ve got three lifts, but I’ve injured my back again so we haven’t been able practice them much.

“I couldn’t even get up out of a chair earlier in the week. But that’s the Strictly journey I suppose,” during an interview with the Daily Telegraph.

Debbie, who was given the maximum 40 points for her the Tango last Saturday, went on to address Aston’s controversial elimination after a dance off with Mollie King.

“There was absolute horror when they announced that Aston was in the dance-off,” she said. “The studio went completely quiet. Because he was so good, the viewers thought that he was safe.

“The judges score on pure technique and they have a knowledge that we don’t. Mollie improved her technique in the dance-off and so that’s why head judge Shirley [Ballas] saved her.”

Strictly Come Dancing 2017 continues tomorrow at 6.45pm on BBC One.
