Joanne Clifton: Robert Webb leaving Strictly Come Dancing is a massive shame

OHMYGOSSIP — Joanne Clifton thinks it’s a “massive shame” Robert Webb has left ‘Strictly Come Dancing’.
The former ‘Strictly’ pro dancer admitted the 49-year-old star’s decision to leave the show – which he made earlier this week, due to “ill health” – was unfortunate but she understood why he withdrew.
She said: “It’s a massive, massive shame about Robert Webb. At the end of the day, the BBC and him and his doctors have decided that it’s better for him not to do it, especially when it comes to heart problems. Yeah, definitely shouldn’t.”
Elaborating, Joanne explained that being on the show is incredibly physically demanding, even if the viewers don’t see it.
Appearing on her brother’s podcast ‘The Kevin Clifton Show,’ Joanne said: “‘Strictly’ is tough. People don’t realise but apart from rehearsals, which can be 11 or 12 hours a day, the actual performance itself with the adrenaline is going to up your heart rate. Also, that’s not the only performance we do of it.
“We’ve got loads of performances and rehearsals of it on the Friday. We’ve got rehearsals on the Saturday, dress run, and then the show. He did quickstep. That is a lot on your heart. Your heart rate is going to go up and up and up. So, I absolutely get it.”
For last week’s theme, Movie Week, the comedian and his partner Dianne Buswell danced the quick step to the theme from ‘The Muppet Show’, complete with Kermit and Miss Piggy outfits.
Robert, who had open heart surgery two years ago, told fans that he was sorry about leaving.
He said in a statement: “I had bitten off way more than I could chew for this stage in my recovery.”
Since leaving ‘Strictly’ in 2016, Joanne has starred in several musicals, such as playing Janet Weiss in the ‘Rocky Horror Picture Show’.
