Deb­bie’s on top!

The Wokingham Paper - - NEWS -

THE Lovely Deb­bie McGee waltzed her way to the top of Strictly Come Danc­ing’s leader­board in the sec­ond week of the com­pe­ti­tion – and her danc­ing with part­ner Gio­vanni Per­nice re­ceived much praise from the judges.

On Satur­day night, the sec­ond week of the con­test, the BBC Ra­dio Berk­shire pre­sen­ter danced a Vi­en­nese waltz to Billy Joel’s She’s Al­ways A Woman. She re­ceived an im­pres­sive 34 points from the judg­ing panel.

And on Sun­day night, in the re­sults show, Deb­bie and Gio­vanni were the first cou­ple to be de­clared through to week three’s movie week.

When she found out the news, the beam­ing Deb­bie mouthed to the TV cam­eras “Thank you every­body”.

And af­ter­wards, Deb­bie said that she was

“stunned” and “deliri­ous” to be voted through to the next round.

“You can’t take any­thing for granted,” she said. Af­ter­wards, show host Clau­dia Win­kle­man in­ter­viewed the judges to ask for their opin­ion on week two.

Darcy Bushell was full of praise for Deb­bie’s pos­ture and danc­ing.

Ev­ery­thing, she said: “Oozes grace”.

And at the end of the show, Deb­bie showed, once again, why she is called lovely: she rushed up to the celebrity who lost the dance off to show her sup­port and con­cern.

On Satur­day Deb­bie and Gio­vanni will dance a quick­step to Let’s Call The Whole Thing Off from Shall We Dance.
