Kaye Adams “blanked” during dance-off
The Scottish broadcaster danced her heart out to Dorothy Provine’s Music! Music! Music! but it was no match against Matt Goss’ Saturday Night Fever-esque samba.
Head judge Shirley Ballas was overruled by her peers, who believed Kaye’s mistakes were too much to look past.
Adams, 59, told Strictly – It Takes Two that she gave her dance for survival 100 percent. “I did it as well as I could. That’s all I can really say.
“You know, as I have said from the beginning, I am not a dancer – which is perfectly obvious – but I gave it everything that I could.”
Talking to host Rylan Clark-Neal, Kaye admitted that she “blanked” during the final performance. “I’ve seen a few people say, ‘She was like a rabbit in the headlights.’
“All I can say is ‘Yeah, I was. I was tired.”
Kaye’s short stint is unfortunate for partner Kai Widdrington, who had an impressive debut run with AJ Odudu in 2021. The pair were forced to pull out of the final after Odudu’s ankle injury left her unable to stand.
Nevertheless, the professional was proud of his partner and her fighting effort. “It was to come back with a bang and, you know, alright it didn’t fall our way in the end, but you should be proud of that.”
