BBC Breakfast hosts make huge Strictly Come Dancing blunder live on-air | The Sun
BBC Breakfast hosts made a huge Strictly Come Dancing blunder as they discussed Nigel Harman's shock exit.
The news show, which aired on BBC Two on Sunday, featured a brief summary of the hit BBC reality TV series which broadcast the night before.
Shortly before Strictly's quarter final show, The Sun exclusively revealed how ex EastEnders actor Nigel, 50, had been forced to pull out due to injury.
He was due to perform a Charleston to Step in Time from Disney's Mary Poppins, alongside fan-favourite pro dancer Katya Jones.
At the time, a BBC spokesperson said: “Unfortunately Nigel has sustained a rib injury which means he is unable to perform in tonight’s show and has had to withdraw from Strictly.”
On Sunday, BBC Breakfast hosts Ben Thompson and Sarah Campbell discussed the show shock – which means noone is eliminated tonight.
