Strictlys Claudia Winkleman suffers awkward words blunder live on air

Claudia Winkleman made an awkward blunder in the closing moments of Strictly Come Dancing on Saturday.

The presenter made the gaffe live on air as she recapped the scores after CBBC star Molly Rainford and her pro partner Carlos Gu finished their dance.

She began by saying: "One of our couples will be leaving this weekend. If you don't want to lose your favourite, please make sure you vote by 10 past 9."

Claudia's co-presenter Tess Daly then told viewers to tune in to Sunday's results show on BBC One to find out who will bag a place in the Dance Off and who will go home.

Claudia added: "We'll also have performances," before mumbling and adding: "Performances even from Robbie Williams and a brilliant group dance from our professionals."

Head judge Shirley Ballas also made a blunder on the show when she was slow to react to a question from Tess at the start of the show.

She later conceded there'd been a 'hitch' later in the programme.

Claudia also made a sly dig about the falling value of the pound during the show.

The currency fell to an all-time low after the newly-appointed Chancellor of the Exchequer’s ‘mini-budget’ was unveiled last week.

As she teased Tyler West and her dance partner, Dianne Buswell, would be playing the roles of ‘bank robbers’ for their jive, Claudia advised what currency they should be aiming for.

She joked: "My advice? Go for the dollar. Not the pound. Better value."

Viewers were left in stitches by Claudia's joke.

One wrote: "Omg @ClaudiaWinkle that POUND joke cracked me up, hilarious!!!", alongside a string of crying face emojis.

During Saturday's show bookies' favourite Will Mellor only managed a score of 26, with judges slating his salsa for being riddles with mistakes, after he bagged 34 the previous week.

Loose Women anchor Kaye Adams also became the first contestant to leave the BBC dance contest after losing out to singer Matt Goss in the dance off.
