On Tuesday’s instalment of the Strictly spin-off show It Takes Two, host Janette Manrara spoke to Fleur East and Vito Coppola about their most up-to-date dance routine. Touching on their Rumba performance, the previous X Factor star revealed Vito was mean to her once they were learning the dance.

Last weekend saw the remaining stars, apart from Kym Marsh who was absent resulting from covid, take to the dance floor to earn a spot within the quarter-finals.

One in all those included 35-year-old Fleur who tackled the Rumba along with her Strictly pro Vito.

Speaking about their performance on probably the most recent instalment of It Takes Two, host Janette Manrara complimented the contestant telling her that it’s an advanced dance.

Thanking her, the Strictly star said: “It’s all right down to him, he was so mean, all week!

Dancing each of their routines again, judges Craig Revel Horwood, Motsi Mabuse, Shirley Ballas and Anton Du Beke all decided to avoid wasting Fleur.

Speaking about their dance-off on It Takes Two, the singer confessed she had expected it resulting from the extent of competition stepping up.

She told Janette: “There’s so few of us now and once you watch everybody, we cheer everybody on.

“We watch them like, ‘Oh my gosh he’s smashed it, she smashed it, they’re all killing it!’

“So, to be standing there, you’re pondering it’s got to be considered one of us so I wasn’t surprised for that reason.”

Although she found herself within the dance-off, Fluer is currently in joint third place with Molly Rainford and Carlos Gu who also received a rating of 35.

At the highest with a complete of 38 is the actor Will Mellor and Nancy Xu with Hamza Yassin and Jowita Przystal close behind with 37.
