Strictly Come Dancing star Fleur East has detailed the struggles involved with competing in the BBC show. Despite storming to the semi-finals of the dancing competition, the singer has not always found the votes from the public easy to live with. She opened up on the effects of falling in the bottom two to Lorraine on Friday.

The amazing performances of Fleur and Vito Coppola have wowed judges en route to the latter stages of the competition.

However, Fleuer explained to Lorraine Kelly how the toll of being in the dance-off is harder to deal with than TV screens may show.

Lorraine asked her: “Ludicrously you have been in the bottom two three times which I just don’t get. I don’t get it at all, that’s just nuts.

“Clearly you get saved because you’re very good, but that must be upsetting or just knock your confidence a wee bit.”

Fleur replied: “It’s quite difficult to deal with, he [Vito] has to always pick me up on a Monday after we’ve been in a dance off.”

She added: “You work so hard all week and you get to that point and you just really hope you get through.

“To be in the bottom and then to dance again under a lot of pressure is tough, it’s quite tough.”

This week the remaining hopefuls will dance twice in a rescheduled semi-final taking place on Sunday evening.

Fleur kicked off the series as one of the favourites to be crowned the ballroom champion but has since been usurped by an emerging favourite.

Hamza Yassin and his professional partner Jowita Przystal are the current favourites to bring home the Glitterball Trophy.

After a run of memorable performances, the pair are now the most fancied by bookmakers to be crowned victorious.

Hamza is currently tipped at 4/11 with Bet Victor to win the series, with Fleur a tempting 40/1 to lift the coveted trophy.

Sam Boswell from the bookmakers gave his insight on the remaining five duos.

He said: “Hamza and Jowita are the favourites for the Glitterball.

“We have seen plenty of short-price favourites win Strictly over the years and his journey seems to have really resonated with fans.”
