Strictlys Dianne Buswell admits shes gutted after dance didnt go to plan

Strictly: Bobby and Dianne perform Salsa to Dirty Dancing music

Strictly Come Dancing professional Dianne Buswell has admitted she feels “gutted” after her dance routine with partner Bobby Brazier “didn’t go to plan”.

The BBC dancer and EastEnders actor danced the salsa to the song (I’ve Had) The Time Of My Life from 1987’s Dirty Dancing last night.

The routine, which landed them a score of 34, was praised as “one of the most difficult” by head judge Shirley Ballas, while Craig Revel Horwood felt it had “failed” because Dianne wasn’t able to raise her arms into the air during the dance’s iconic lift.

Taking to Instagram, Dianne shared a picture of their dance with her 979,000 followers after many viewers noticed the lift hadn’t quite taken off.

“Gutted the LIFT didn’t go to plan like it had in most rehearsals But i do have to say we took a risk and didn’t play it safe that dance was hard and so iconic that of course there was pressure to do it justice,” she wrote. “And the feeling of just not quite getting it was a bit low for us .
