Strictly’s Angela Scanlon left daughter ‘devastated’ with show news

Angela Scanlon gives Strictly Come Dancing update

Robot Wars presenter Angela Scanlon has admitted that her daughter was “devastated” when she told her she was going to take part in Strictly Come Dancing because she wouldn’t be able to appear with her.

The 39-year-old TV star, who is married to tech entrepreneur Roy Horgan, has two children – five-year-old Ruby and 18-month-old Marnie.

She admits that with her children a little older and no more babies on the horizon this was the ideal time to do the hit BBC One show, although Ruby wasn’t impressed by the news.

“We’ve had the conversation [about doing Strictly] before and it hasn’t been right – I’ve been trying to have a baby or thinking about having a baby or pregnant.

“When it came in this year, there wasn’t really a question,” she revealed.

“Ruby loves the show. She was like, ‘Can I do it, too? Are we doing it together?’

“She was quite devastated when she realised she couldn’t dance with me,” she told OK Magazine.

Although she hasn’t set foot on the dancefloor yet Angela is already one of the favourites to lift the glitterball trophy.

However, she revealed to and other press that there is one dance she is not looking forward to tackling.

“I feel the Rumba will be grossly uncomfortable for me and everybody watching,” she said saying that specific dance would take her “right to the edge of discomfort.”

Since the celebrities learn a different new dance each week, before performing it live on the Saturday night, it is not yet known which week Angela will be tasked with performing the Rumba.

However, she also revealed that there is one dance that she is excited to learn and that is the Quickstep. Angela said that she thinks the lively ballroom routine that sees couples skip across the dancefloor to a much more upbeat tune is “very nice”.

Strictly 2022 contestant, actress and comedian Ellie Taylor, who was paired with fan favourite Johannes Radebe, shared some words of wisdom with Angela in advance of the show.

“Ellie Taylor said to me, remember it’s a TV show first and foremost and you are not a dancer which has actually been really good.”
