Strictly 2019: Michelle Visage at ‘disadvantage’ after Giovanni’s rehearsal admission?

Michelle Visage and Giovanni Pernice joined Rylan Clark-Neal on Strictly Come Dancing’s spin-off It Takes Two this evening and while the pair discussed their upcoming performance, the professional dancer dropped a surprising revelation about their time in rehearsals this week.

The Drag Race UK judge and Giovanni will be performing an Addams Family themed Foxtrot for Halloween week.

As the Addams Family theme played in the BBC studio, Giovanni exclaimed: “Stop, stop the song!”

Later on Rylan remarked: “You’re listening to that song eight hours a day…”

“The first two days he wouldn’t even play it, he just choreographed it and sang it because of the thought of playing it over and over again, so it’s a joke,” Michelle explained.

Giovanni continued: “And then we stopped training with the music, without music.

“We just listen today, we came back with the music today.”

Will Michelle’s lack of rehearsal time with her chosen music put her at a disadvantage? 

Meanwhile, Rylan revealed Giovanni’s impressive track record for Halloween week in the competition.

“It’s Strictly stat time guys,” Rylan said. “Gio, you are our most hell-raising pro because you have an average Halloween score of 37.5.”

“Michelle how does the pressure feel, can you do it?” the host asked.

“Of course I can do it Rylan,” Michelle hit back.

Discussing last week’s Rumba, Rylan said: “Let’s not beat around the bush, the Rumba is probably not your favourite dance.”

However Michelle said: “I loved it! I really did, it’s not the easiest but I enjoyed the story telling and I enjoyed doing it.”

Rylan said: “If that’s the worse Strictly can throw to you, up to this point you are having a laugh. 

You are doing so well at the minute, can you believe how this experience is going for you?”

Michelle explained: “No and I don’t even want to think about it because the minute you think about it too much that’s when everything falls apart.

“I’m just enjoying this experience, I never thought I could do anything like this in my entire life.

“And the fact that I’m doing it and having an incredible partner like Gio teaching it to me as been unbelievable.”

Earlier in the show, Amy Dowden hit out at Karim Zeroual after he revealed what his favourite part of the competition was.

“The best bit for me is the performing bit,” he confessed.

Turning to the studio audience, he said: “Just going out there on Saturday and hopefully giving you guys a good performance.” 

Interrupting, Amy said: “Hang on so you’re telling me…”

“I want to make you proud,” Karim jumped in.

“The best bit is not me nagging you in the studio?” Amy joked.
