Helen Skelton says ‘it’s difficult’ to swap partners for Strictly tour

OHMYGOSSIP — Helen Skelton says it’s “really difficult” not to be dancing with Gorka Marquez on the ‘Strictly Come Dancing’ tour.
The 39-year-old TV presenter danced with Gorka on the last series of the BBC show – coming in as runners-up to winner Hamza Yassin – but the professional dancer has been unable to join her on the tour so she’s now dancing with Kai Widdrington instead.
She told The Sun newspaper she misses her former dance partner, saying: “It’s really difficult not to be with Gorka because we’re such good friends. I’ve been asking him for advice a lot, so it feels like he’s here. I’d have loved for him to do it, but it’s almost like he’s in the group.”
It’s been a big change dancing with Kai – who is much taller than Gorka – but Helen insists she’s lucky to have him as her new partner.
She added: “It’s such a tight knit group in the studio anyway. We all talked and all had a laugh. so it’s different, but it wasn’t a worry and like ‘oh my god what’s going to happen’.
“We knew each other from the series, we all hung out and spoke a lot. I was very lucky Kai was able to do it.”
Helen went on to insist she feels proud to have been a part of the beloved BBC talent show, adding: “The great thing about Strictly is it connects with lots of people in lots of different ways.
“I’m very lucky in my career to do jobs that do exactly that. That’s the best thing about telly – you can make telly that you’re proud of and that people connect with and share a moment with and that’s what Strictly does in spades.”
