Loose Women Nadia and Coleen disagree on Strictly as she admits feeling awkwardOctober 9, 2020
Loose Women 's Nadia Sawalha and Coleen Nolan disagreed on the show today as Nadia revealed she wouldn't want to do Strictly at her age because she doesn't want to dance with a younger man.
Revealing that the only dancer she'd want to appear on the show with would be Anton du Beke, Nadia said she'd feel "awkward" dancing with a young hunk.
She said: "I would feel really intimidated being with a really young dancer.
"Maybe that’s just because I’ve been dictated to, it’s ageism or whatever, but I would feel awkward.
"Definitely I would feel awkward."
However, Coleen was the total opposite as she said she would "kill to be on Strictly".
She said: "I love it and I love the fact that it is every age right across the board, male and female.
"It’s every size. I think we should celebrate that because we don’t see that a lot.
“And as for the older women doing it, yes some of them go in… Ann Widdecombe ended up being the funny one because she was funny. She couldn’t dance and she admitted she never went to rehearsals because she couldn’t be bothered.
"But then you equally get older women who have gone really far in the competition and who have been brilliant."
This comes after Dawn French, 55, revealed she wouldn't do Strictly because she would worry she wasn't being taken seriously.
She said: "At this age, you’re not taken seriously.
"Also if you’re from comedy, they want to shoot you out of a cannonball like Ann Widdecombe and I don’t want that."
Jennifer Saunders agreed, adding that if either of them signed up for the show then they already knew they would be paired up with Anton du Beke.
She said: "We wouldn’t get Aljaz [Škorjanec] or any of the nice ones."
Loose Women continues on Monday at 12.30pm on ITV.
