Noth­ing strict about Lisa’s diet

Midweek Sport - - FRONT PAGE -

CHUBBY ac­tress Lisa Ri­ley stole the show on Strictly Tum Danc­ing - sorry, I mean Strictly Come Danc­ing – with the high­est score.

No­body had ever imag­ined the exEm­merdale heifer (right) mov­ing with such speed or grace.

Well, not un­less it was be­tween food sta­tions at an all-you- can-eat buf­fet.

It is now likely she will win the damn thing. Partly be­cause she looks a lot more like the vot­ing au­di­ence than, say, Kim­ber­ley Walsh or Denise Van Outen (frankly, so does Johnny Ball) and partly be­cause the BBC pro­duc­ers will re­lent­lessly favour her.

In re­cent years the show has been dom­i­nated by the beau­ti­ful young things like Kara Toin­ton, Ale­sha Dixon and Ali Bas­tian.

A Lise Ri­ley vic­tory would be a fresh story for the BBC.

They’ve not had a fat York­shire knacker win it since Dar­ren Gough in 2005.
