Can’t wait for the chapter on song of 2019 Stretch
I was perusing podcasts on Spotify the other night and came across the episode she did with Sophie Ellis Bextor. Though she seems like a nice enough sort, it bored me to tears (doesn't help that SEB is dull as a podcaster too - certainly no Jessie Ware). She also seemed strangely ungrateful for her Strictly Come Dancing experience which wasn't exactly endearing.
I actually thought the Strictly chat was really interesting (and Sophie seemed to agree with a somewhat shared experience).
The celebs never really talk about the show so it was a revelation to hear two finalists talk unfavourably about it.
Can some summarise what they said? I’m too busy stretching x
I think it's more of a reflection of how they dealt with the increased exposure (what exactly did they expect - its a popularity contest FFS), completely overlooking the fact that it revived interest in them (to whatever degree) in a way nothing else would.
Female popstar - ‘I didn’t really enjoy my time on Strictly’
@Eddie - ‘You brought this on yourself you ungrateful bitch!’
Things aren’t just black and white hun. They’re allowed a refreshingly honest opinion that doesn’t tow the party line.
They both made out as if it was somewhat beneath them despite reaping the benefits.
Clearly they weren't prepared to look a gift horse in the mouth at the time though!
