Strictly’s Fleur East discusses wardrobe malfunction in semi-final dress rehearsal


Strictly Come Dancing star Fleur East has revealed she showed off a little more than intended in the dress rehearsal for Sunday night’s semi-final.

Looking back on the final practice runs for her Paso Doble and Charleston, the singer explained that she accidentally “flashed everybody” in the studio during the pre-show rehearsals.

“In the dress run before the actual live show there were so many wardrobe malfunctions with my costumes in particular,” she recalled, chatting on her Hits Radio Breakfast Show.

“So, when I did the Paso Doble in the dress run I basically flashed everybody when I lifted my skirt. It was really bad – and then my boobs fell out!”

Unfortunately, that wasn’t the only costume problem Fleur endured on the night, as she also suffered another wardrobe malfunction while practicing her second dance.

“After that I practiced my lift in the Charleston and my strap broke on my top so my boob fell out again!” she recalled.

“So that was fun… I was so nervous for the live show after that had happened in in the dress run that I was like, ‘Please let my costume stay on’.”

Thankfully Fleur’s costumes managed to stay in place for the live semi-final and she completed both of her routines without any more outfit mishaps.

Dancing with her professional partner Vito Coppola, Fleur scored 35 points for her Paso Doble and 39 for her Charleston, securing her third place on the leaderboard.

However, fans will have to wait until Monday evening to find out the results of the public vote and discover whether Fleur has secured a spot in the final.

Countryfile star Helen Skelton, wildlife presenter Hamza Yassin, former Hollyoaks and Coronation Street actor Will Mellor, and CBBC star Molly Rainford are also hoping to land a place in the last show of the series to battle it out for the famous Glitterball Trophy.

Fans of Fleur East can listen to her on The Hits Radio Breakfast Show, airing on weekdays from 6am–10am.

Strictly Come Dancing‘s final airs on Saturday (December 17) at 7.05pm on BBC One, while spin-off show Strictly: It Takes Two airs on weeknights on BBC Two. Both shows also stream on BBC iPlayer.
