Shirley Ballas recalls her Strictly Come Dancing audition ‘disaster’

OHMYGOSSIP — Shirley Ballas’ ‘Strictly Come Dancing’ audition was “an absolute disaster”.
The 61-year-old head judge of the Latin and ballroom show has admitted she will “never forget” when she was given the job after a calamitous initial try out, but she was allowed to do a second audition, which “was better”.
She said: “My greatest memory from ‘Strictly’ so far has to be the day I got the job. That is a memory I will never forget.
“The audition was an absolute disaster … I got to do it twice, but the second one was better.
“To get the actual call to say, ‘We think that you would be good for the job’, and at 57 who would have thought? Now I’m going into my fifth series and I love it more than life itself.
“I just love every single second of the music, the atmosphere, the celebrities, the professionals, who are the best in the world by the way, and everybody who helps make that show run.”
The first ‘Strictly’ live show of the new series airs on Saturday (25.09.21), and Shirley cannot wait to be reunited with her fellow judges, Motsi Mabuse, Craig Revel Horwood, and newcomer, former ‘Strictly’ pro dancer, Anton Du Beke.
She said: “I love going in on a Saturday, going into my room and seeing all my friends – I love to see Motsi.
“She’s a few doors down and she always has that loud music blaring and dances down the corridors, I love her energy.
“Then we’ve got Craig who is just gorgeous, just gorgeous.
“He’s always got something positive to say behind the scenes, and this year we’ve got Anton Du Beke – so I’m really excited about seeing my fellow judges. I love all of the behind the scenes people that make this show work. You see the judges, dancers and celebrities but without everyone else behind the scenes, the show would not work – it’s a well oiled machine. I love to see the same people year in and year out – everybody…the whole cast.”
As well as seeing familiar faces on the judging panel, Shirley also knows quite a few of this year’s crop of celebrities.
She said: “I know Dan Walker – I climbed Mount Kilimanjaro with him. I know AJ – we did ‘Cooking with The Stars’ together.
“I know Judi from ‘Loose Women’.
“I have bumped into several of the other contestants here and there, so I’m really familiar with a lot of the cast this year, which is great.”
