We do love a happy ending here at Yahoo Towers, so we breathed a huge sigh of relief when EastEnders Nancy and Tam disappeared into the smog without Masood tagging along like the ultimate third wheel.
There’s bad news if you were hoping to see Danny Dyer waltzing around the Strictly Come Dancing dancefloor, as the actor has admitted that he’s not up for popping on his dancing shoes.
Poor Jay McGuiness may still be basking in the glory of his Glitterball Trophy win, but the Strictly Come Dancing judges don’t think he should have walked away with the prize. Darcey Bussell has admitted she felt EastEnders star Kellie Bright was the rightful winner of the BBC One show on Saturday night. Asked if Kellie should have won, Darcey said: “Definitely — without fail.
Jay McGuiness not only won the title of ‘Strictly Come Dancing’ 2015 champion on Saturday, he also became the nation’s new sweetheart (sorry, Cheryl Cole). The Wanted singer’s adorable speech had viewers n’awwwing all over the place as he lifted the glitterball trophy with professional dance partner Aliona Vilani. The tears of joy on Jay and Aliona’s faces were a touching end to a series that’s been hit by controversies and (constantly denied) allegations of fixes.
Your Strictly Come Dancing 2015 champions are Jay McGuiness and Aliona Vilani! The couple waltzed off with the Glitterball Trophy after beating Kellie Bright and partner Kevin Clifton, as well as Georgia May Foote and Giovanni Pernice, in the final dance-off. Earlier in the results show, BBC Radio 3 presenter Katie Derham and dance partner Anton Du Beke finished the competition in fourth place.
Jay McGuiness may be one of four celebs vying for the Glitterball Trophy in the Strictly Come Dancing final tonight, but he’s already thinking about his next steps. Speaking to Yahoo Celebrity and other press, he said: “I took a year and a half off [before Strictly] just having fun. Meanwhile, fellow finalist Kellie Bright admitted she feels “broken” after juggling the hectic Strictly schedule with her equally unforgiving schedule on EastEnders.
Kellie Bright has made it where few EastEnders stars before her have managed - the Strictly Come Dancing final. Speaking to Yahoo Celebrity and other press, Danny heaped praise on his talented co-star, saying: “We’re all so proud of her. Kellie filmed the big New Year’s Day wedding scenes between Mick and Linda Carter the very same week the Strictly contestants had to learn and perform two dances for the first time.
With Danny and Kellie’s respective characters, Mick and Linda, due to tie the knot on New Year’s day, viewers will be invited to join them in reliving some of their most iconic Albert Square moments. Speaking about the show, Kellie explained: “Filming ‘Back to Ours’ was such a great way to look back on everything Danny and I have done since arriving on the Square.
Strictly Come Dancing’s Mr Nasty himself, Craig Revel Horwood, has revealed the three celebrities he reckons could make it to this year’s big final. Sadly, not all the hopefuls made the grade, with Craig claiming a few of the celebrities are not destined to be the next Fred or Ginger. Grading the contestants in the Radio Times, the harsh critic picked out three celebrities who he thinks could come within touching distance of that glitterball trophy.
Given that Carol Kirkwood was bottom of the judges leaderboard, it’s no surprise that the weather presenter left ‘Strictly Come Dancing’ this weekend, but it was a shock to see who she was up against in the dance off. Kellie Bright was clearly shocked to find herself in the bottom two, and the expressions on the other celebs’ faces said it all. Kellie scored 32 for her waltz on Saturday night, placing her fifth with the judges out of 10 contestants.
You might want to sit down for this one: Peter Andre doesn’t “wear pants” underneath his Strictly Come Dancing outfits. The Mysterious Girl hitmaker has revealed that because of the way that his costumes are made for the dance contest he’s unable to wear any underwear, so he’s been going commando on the dance floor!

When EastEnders’ star Kellie Bright was announced to take part in this year’s series of Strictly Come Dancing, we have to admit that our first thought was ‘WHAT ABOUT DANNY DYER?’ as we wondered what her onscreen husband could possibly have to say about Kel getting up, close and personal with another man. Kellie, who plays Linda Carter in the BBC One soap opera, had previously dished that if Craig Revel Horwood dared to be nasty to her during the live shows Danny will sort him out - a sentiment that the 38-year-old actor didn’t exactly try to deny. Meanwhile, Danny and Kellie also teased that despite having a quieter few months in Albert Square of late, dramatic times are ahead.
Strictly Come Dancing is less than a month away and we’ve glue-gunning sequins to everything in preparation for the return of the hit BBC1 show. Currently busy presenting BBC Radio 3’s ‘Afternoon’ show as well as hosting the Classical BRIT Awards, Katie will probably be your Dad’s favourite on the show. Will Katie be a match for the others?
