After performing the Jive to Do You Love Me by The Contours with Strictly Come Dancing professional Katya Jones, BBC Breakfast’s Mike Bushell revealed she’d been messaging her when he was in bed. He did add however, his wife was completely fine with it.
Mike and Katya received 22 points for their first routine with the television presenter putting his all into the action-packed dance.
After getting feedback from the judges, Mike revealed Katya was going to great lengths to ensure he had enough stamina for the Jive.
Speaking to host Claudia Winkleman, he explained: “That’s because Katya has been saying to me, ‘Give me five,’ in restaurants, when I was in bed.
“She texted my wife saying, ‘Give me five, give me five.’”
The 60-year-old and her partner Kevin Clifton performed a Challenge Anneka inspired Cha Cha Cha to Gloria by Laura Branigan.
She sported a purple and pink velvet jumpsuit and didn’t stop smiling throughout the whole performance.
However, judge Craig felt Anneka could have performed better than she did.
Critiquing her routine, he said: “Well that was flat footed, very stiff and lacked any hip action.
“You are better secretly than you’re making out.”
Anneka was shocked by his comment as she appeared open-mouthed and turned to her partner Kevin.
Later, she told host Claudia she had no idea what he talking about, telling her: “Craig thought I was holding something back…
“But what?” she laughed as she waited for her score. The pair only managed to score 14 points for their action-packed routine.
