Strictly fans in tears over ‘poignant’ Remembrance Day tribute

Strictly Come Dancing fans were in tears over the BBC competition’s "poignant" Remembrance Day performance.

The pro dancers performed alongside the RAF Spitfires Choir and the women of the RAF in a tribute to the Royal Air Force.

This comes as today marks 100 days since the end of World War One.

Viewers flocked to Twitter to lavish praise on the beautiful tribute.

One tweeted: "Off all the programmes to have me in tears is had to be Strictly it’s those fallen petals every single time StrictlyComeDancing."

While another commented: "That was the best #Strictly pro dance in a while #ArmisticeDay100."

A third remarked: "That was so good!!!#Strictly #RemembranceSunday."


Week 8 kicked off with a bang on Saturday as Ashley Roberts and Pasha Kovalev reached the top of the leaderboard with their beautiful Couples’ Choice Contemporary number to Unsteady – Erich Lee Gravity Remix by X Ambassadors.

The pair’s beautiful dance, dedicated to Ashley’s late dad, scored them 39 from the judges.


At the bottom of the leaderboard were Danny John-Jules and Amy Dowden, who failed to impress with their Samba to Feels Like Home by Sigala, Fuse ODG, Sean Paul, Kent Jones.

The couple scored just 27 after the judges criticised his technique.
