Strictly Come Dancing star Bobby Brazier has revealed why he appeared to be ‘deflated’ after his dance with Dianne Buswell.
The EastEnders actor, 20, and professional dancer, 34, performed for the judges and viewers on Saturday (14 October) with their Tango to 'Fashion' by David Bowie, scoring an impressive 30 out of 40 and whizzing through to this week’s show.
The dancing duo, wearing red outfits for their performance, were on a winning streak but their emotions almost got the better of them that evening. Both Bobby and Dianne were very emotional following the performance.
Judge Motsi Mabuse said the pair had ‘lost the entertainment factor’.
During the post-performance interview with Claudia Winkleman, Bobby said: "Just emotional. It's been so so emotional all week."
And a tearful Dianne added: "It was really difficult. I pushed you [Bobby] musically. That song is not easy to hear and you worked so hard to be able to hear the music."
She continued: "But he's just been a massive rock this week so thank you.
"He has just been a massive rock this week, so thank you."
Earlier this week, Bobby has said he’s turned to ‘mediation’ to help him after a challenging week last week.
“I am reaping the rewards of chanting. And at work, I’m lucky that, you know, sometimes I’ll be in my dressing room or sometimes I won’t need to be on set,” he said.
"There’s always an opportunity to chant. Even on the train and going to work in the car. It’s always an opportunity. No one is ever too busy to meditate. Ever. It is an opportunity to purify consciousness,” Bobby told The Mirror.
On Wednesday's (18 October) edition of the Strictly Come Dancing spin-off show, It Takes Two, host Janette Manrara asked Bobby: "You looked a little bit deflated though, after you got the judge's comments, why is that? What was going through your head?"
Bobby agreed, and answered: "Yeah, I was proper [deflated]. I think it had less to do with the judges' comments. I was actually quite happy with the judges' comments. Strictly is a journey and I think I was just very tired and glad to have done the Tango and put that all behind me."
Dianne said that the pair were ‘buzzing’ with the feedback from the judges and this Saturday they will take to the floor once again, performing a Viennese Waltz to ‘Golden Hour’ by JVKE.
