Sophie Ellis-Bextor, 42, recently opened up about her “intense” experience on Strictly Come Dancing back in 2013. The singer, who was partnered with Brendan Cole on the show, admitted how she thinks many other contestants will relate to her experience.
Sophie detailed in her new memoir Murder On The Dancefloor how her experience of Strictly was the “best” and the “worst” of times.
In a piece serialised in the Daily Mail, she admitted while she loved the show, her husband Richard Jones struggled with her involvement.
The mum-of-five shared how the experience led them to marriage counselling.
She also compared the show to a “cult” as she admitted there was not enough help behind the scenes.
