Bobby Brazier left his dance partner Dianne Buswell awkwardly giggling after admitting that he shows off his dance moves in the bedroom.
Body language expert Judi James admits the young actor has “no filter” but suggested he is now feeling embarrassed about making the comments live on-air.
“He referred to ‘the person I share a bed with’,” the expert explained. “This was blurted out, proving he has his mum’s skill of lacking a filter on TV.”
Judi continued: “Dianne seemed to collapse with shocked laughter. I wonder whether this was not part-deliberate though and could have sat well with her.
“There has been unfair speculation about Bobby and Dianne and she has looked anxious as a result and seemed keen to avoid anything that could look like flirting.
“Bobby did perform a partial face-slap gesture once he realised what he’d said, suggesting some mild regret or embarrassment.”
After performing an American Smooth on Saturday night, Bobby said that he’s been rehearsing steps “in his sleep”.
“I woke up one morning doing this,” Bobby revealed to Strictly presenter Claudia, waving his hand to the side. “I woke myself up doing that. Crazy.
“And then the week before, the person that I shared the bed with, I turned, and I said, ‘This is the industrial twist.'”
The Strictly cast started to chuckle, as Claudia cut in with, “Who wants to pull on that string?”
Meanwhile, a laughing Dianne jokingly scolded her celebrity partner, saying “Bobby!”
Bobby and Dianne performed to 5 Seconds of Summer’s track Ghost of You, receiving a score of 32 from the judges.
Their routine was less steamy than their Argentine Tango from the week before, which saw the couple end their routine with what looked like an almost kiss.
The remaining seven couples will take to the dancefloor next week when the Strictly Come Dancing Blackpool Special returns to the Tower Ballroom.
