9 October 2019 NEWS
Strictly Come Dancingspin-offIt Takes Twois having some trouble with its stars showing up lately.
Last week, presenter Zoe Ballmissed some showsbecause she was battling a “nasty bout of the flu”, but this week it’s the celebrity guests who are failing to turn up!
Wednesday’s (October 9) episode featured Zoe’s return as presenter, as she joked: “I’m back, baby, yes I am after a bout of flu that had me dance floored.”
The camera then flashed over the night’s guests, who were all wearing hospital masks as a gag. There was one person missing though — professional dancer Amy Dowden had turned up without Karim Zeroual.
“What, no Karim?” Zoe then joked, then explaining: “He’s got the lurgy too. Nothing to do with me too, I swear!’
Amy had relayed during her solo chat with Zoe later in the show that Karim felt terrible about having to skip his appearance onIt Takes Two.
“He’s got the lurgy,” the pro reiterated. “He’s resting up because obviously we need him fighting fit for Saturday night. He’s so disappointed not to be here!”
