The model revealed she developed crippling agoraphobia, insomnia and anxiety after deciding to continue on the BBC dance show following the death of her grandfather.
Daisy Lowe has laughed off rumours that she is in a lesbian relationship with Louise Redknapp.
Strictly Come Dancing’s well-known for upsetting the love lives of countless celebrities – and now Daisy Lowe’s laid the blame for her recent split firmly at the show’s door. For once it has nothing to do with a celeb copping off with a dance partner, though.
Yahoo Celeb sat down for a chat with the Bolton born lass and got onto the topic of Strictly Come Dancing, as you do, and the possible return of ex-judge Arlene Phillips. Strictly was accused of ageism when it made the controversial move to drop Arlene, 73, seven years ago but rumours have swirled that she’ll replace Len Goodman on the panel and Sara is all for it. Sara points out that her own career is thriving in her forties.
“Every day we’re shown images about the perfect body and what it should be – but we just have the ones that we live in. Hmm… a model with a perfect body strutting around the dancefloor to make us all feel better about our bodies?
Daisy Lowe took an evening off Strictly rehearsals last night to let her hair down at the launch of the new Cadbury Milk Tray advert. The night also celebrated the unveiling of the new Milk Tray man, Patrick McBride, who Daisy seemed more than impressed with, paying tribute to him with her very own black roll neck. Paired with Giovanni Pernice, the actress ended up in a relationship with her professional dancer until they split earlier this year.
There’s nothing like an appearance on Strictly Come Dancing to get a whole load of skeletons tumbling out of the closet. This week it’s Daisy Lowe’s turn, with the man who believed he was the model’s dad for 14 YEARS coming forward to tell the tabloids about his heartache at not seeing her for over a decade. Bronner Handwerger helped bring up Daisy until she was 14-years-old – and then discovered that her real dad was actually musician Gavin Rossdale of Brit rockers Bush.
Strictly Come Dancing has been hit with fresh “fix claims” just days into the new series as celebrity contestants have been accused of “cheating” after sneaking in extra rehearsals. This weekend saw the show’s stars – including Danny Mac, Ed Balls and Daisy Lowe – take to the BBC ballroom floor for the first time, but it has been reported that some dance couples are getting more practice than others. The participating celebrities are reportedly only allowed a set amount of rehearsals, but after Friday night’s show, some contestants took to the Elstree Studios stage to practice their moves before their Saturday night debut.
Last night saw the launch of the new series of Strictly Come Dancing, and although this should have been an exciting moment for all of the celebrity contestants involved, it was incredibly bittersweet for one. Supermodel Daisy Lowe put on a smile for the launch episode but has revealed that she is secretly battling heartache following the shock death of her beloved grandfather. 82-year-old Eddie Davis was understandably thrilled when his granddaughter told him that she was taking part in the popular show, but he suddenly passed away on Daisy’s first day of Strictly rehearsals after suffering a heart attack.
The bombshell ditched her bra for the night and teamed matching red lipstick and gold heels with a sheer red body-sock dress that featured frills to cover her thigh gap and a glitter panel over each boob, barely covering her nipples. Daisy, 27, could hardly be ignored as she shimmied along the red carpet earlier this week in the racy number, whilst her co-stars Louise Redknapp’s lilac 1920s inspired number or Laura Whitmore’s flame inspired mini-dress were far less daring. Will Strictly bosses have a quiet word with the wardrobe department to ensure Daisy isn’t baring all each week?
A-level results day is arguably one of the most pivotal days in the education calendar, and with thousands of students across the country set to receive their grades, Jeremy Clarkson has shared a message of support.
Daisy Lowe is the latest celebrity to be added to the ever-growing list of stars rumoured to be trying to discover their hidden waltzing talents in this year’s Strictly Come Dancing competition. According to reports, Strictly bosses signed Daisy for the show in the hopes that she will attract a ‘younger audience’ to watch stars tackling the tricky art of ballroom and latin dancing. A source also claims that Daisy has started ‘intense training’ in preparation for the show’s start in September, adding: “The show doesn’t start for over two months but she has already started practising.
Anyway, rumours are circulating that model Daisy Lowe is getting over her split from Peaches Geldof’s widower, Thomas Cohen, by cosying up to Darius. The couple were spotted enjoying a date at the National Gallery in London on Wednesday. To be fair to Darius, he’s come a long way since the ponytail, moustache and Britney cover version that got him talked about all those years ago.
Welp, today is not a good day for celebrity couples with it being reported that Daisy Lowe and Thomas Cohen have split. Daisy had been dating Thomas, the widower of her late best friend Peaches Geldof, since the start of the year but it is thought that the romance has fizzled out.
Daisy Lowe says that the term ‘plus size’ should be made redundant by the fashion industry. In an exclusive chat with Yahoo Celebrity, the model vented her frustrations that labels like ‘plus size’ are still necessary despite the fashion industry making progress in recent years.
