Ruth proves a bit of a rough di­a­mond

Irish Sunday Mirror - - NEWS - BY KAREN ROCKETT

LOOSE Woman Ruth Langs­ford had an­other dis­as­trous dance at the Strictly movie night – only saved by the hi­lar­i­ous com­ments of her pro­fes­sional part­ner An­ton du Beke.

Af­ter a roast­ing from the judges for her rub­bish rumba to Di­a­monds are For­ever, she scored 15 out of 40.

An­ton quipped: “Well, I had a lovely time. She’s a work in progress. By March we should have about 45.”

There was some con­so­la­tion for poor Ruth though. The Rev Richard Coles scored even less – get­ting just 14 points for his paso doble to the Theme from Flash Gor­don.

But Brian Con­ley was laugh­ing all the way, com­ing back from last week’s dance-off to score 22 for his Amer­i­can Smooth dressed as the scare­crow from the Wizard of Oz.

Af­ter some promis­ing com­ments from the judges, a de­lighted Brian told Clau­dia: “I needed that”.

Last night Ap­pren­tice boss Lord Sugar ap­peared to call for Strictly head judge Shirley Bal­las to be fired, tweet­ing: “Next sea­son An­ton should be head judge. #an­ton­head­judge.”
