BBC Strictly fans left ‘sobbing’ as unexpected star makes surprise appearance

Dog makes appearance on Strictly Come Dancing

Strictly Come Dancing fans were left “Sobbing” on Sunday night after Mr Darcy the dog made a surprise cameo in the opening routine. Graziano di Prima and Lauren Oakley led the professionals’ dance routine before Tess Daly announced which celebrity couple had landed in the bottom two.

However, as fake snowflakes fell to the ground, Mr Darcy made a surprise appearance and the studio audience let out a huge cheer. Viewers at home were also blown away by the dog’s cameo, with many admitting to shedding a tear.

Taking to X, formerly known as Twitter, @Survivinthe20s penned: “Oh I’m crying my eyes out now, that doggo looks exactly like my girl who died earlier this year aged 16. I miss my gorgeous girl.”

@lreynoldsx echoed: “Crying at the pro dance, had to watch it twice.” While @siobhanliadoyle added: “Mr Darcy to win Strictly this year. What a good boy. #Strictly.” (sic)

@emmalawton_ asked: “Can I vote for Mr Darcy? My winner!”

Shortly after, she confirmed Annabel Croft and Johannes Radebe were also in the bottom two.

The couples had to perform their routines once again before the judges decided who they wanted to save.

It was a split decision as Craig Revel Horwood decided to save Annabel, while Motsi Mabuse and Anton Du Beke chose to save Bobby.

It was then up to head judge Shirley Ballas to confirm who she wanted to save and explained she wanted Bobby and Dianne to stay for the final.

Shirley explained: “The semi-final 2023, I thought both couples were absolutely extraordinary, I felt that both couples lifted their performance, I thought there was technical qualities on both sides, improvements galore, but again one tiny mistake coming out of a pivot turn and therefore my decision would be to save Bobby and Dianne. 

When speaking to Tess about her time on the show, Annabel said: “It’s been the most life-changing and extraordinary experience of my life.

“I have to congratulate Bobby and Dianne and all the contestants that took part in it. But obviously, it’s been an amazing, magical experience for me.

“Johannes, you have been absolutely extraordinary. You have given me a reason to get out of bed and come and dance with you, distract me, and to heal me. I can’t thank you enough for that.

“You have been so patient, so caring and so loving. You are an unbelievably special human being. I simply adore you. Thank you so much.”

Strictly Come Dancing returns on Saturday at 7pm on BBC One.
