Strictly Come Danc­ing

TV Plus (South Africa) - - 9 AUGUST -

Bub­bly, blonde and beau­ti­ful, Roxy Burger has been on TV for over 15 years, first as a KTV pre­sen­ter (1999-2007) and later host­ing sea­son 2 of SABC3 en­ter­tain­ment se­ries Flash (2011). Last year she was an MTV pre­sen­ter and now she’s back on the tube, co-host­ing the new sea­son of Strictly Come Danc­ing (SCD)…

What’s it like co-pre­sent­ing SCD with Katlego Maboe? This is the first time that we’re work­ing to­gether, but we have such great en­ergy that it’s just so much fun. What’s the tough­est thing about host­ing the show? The pres­sure of it be­ing a live show. But then again, I do love live TV. There’s noth­ing quite like that adren­a­line rush! How is your pre­sent­ing style on SCD dif­fer­ent from pre­vi­ous hosts? I have a lot of fun with the pre­sent­ing. I have a love for danc­ing – I danced for 13 years and I know that this trans­lates into my host­ing style. Would you have liked to com­pete? Def­i­nitely! I’ve always wanted to com­pete and have ac­tu­ally men­tioned this to the pro­duc­tion com­pany. And that’s why the ex­ec­u­tive pro­duc­ers knew that I would be in­ter­ested in be­ing part of the show. I’m re­ally glad to be the host though! Your ideal dance part­ner would be… Ryan Ham­mond. I worked in pro­duc­tion on SCD when I started my pro­duc­tion ca­reer as an in­tern and got to know him then. He’s a sweet­heart and only wants the best for his dance part­ners. And how’s mar­ried life? Are any fam­ily plans on the cards? Not much has changed as we [Roxy and her hubby Neil Shraga] lived to­gether be­fore we got mar­ried in April this year. We def­i­nitely want to have a fam­ily but not too soon – we’re fo­cus­ing on our ca­reers at the mo­ment and we love to travel. So a lit­tle more of that will be on the cards for us be­fore we de­cide to have kids.

Dancer roxy is right on the mark with her pre­sent­ing skills on SCD.
