Strictly Come Dancing 2019: Saffron Barker’s elimination revealed as AJ drops bombshell?

November 23, 2019

Saffron Barker and AJ Pritchard took to the dance floor in the Blackpool Tower with a glamorous Quickstep but their moves failed to impress the judges and the public to keep them out of the dance off. The YouTube star found herself having to dance again for her chance to process in the competition with co-stars Michelle Visage and Giovanni Pernice, who were subsequently booted off Strictly Come Dancing by the judges. 

The YouTube star will be doing all she can to stay out of the dance off for a second week in a row but it seems her time in the competition could be up.

On tonight’s instalment of BBC spin-off It Takes Two, hosts Zoe Ball and Rylan Clark-Neal introduced footage of a host of the celebrities rehearsing for their upcoming routines.

As Saffron was shown learning the steps of the Samba she’ll be performing this weekend, AJ made a shock revelation that could seal Saffron’s fate on Saturday.

AJ revealed to Strictly fans his previous performances in the competition suggest this could be his and Saffron’s final dance.

The professional dancer confessed: “I’ve had a bad history with the Samba every time I’ve danced it, I’ve gone home.”

But AJ added: “This week is going to be different.”

Will Saffron face the dance off or will she Samba her way into the next week of the competition?

AJ went on to reveal how Saffron has been doing with the notoriously difficult dance.

“The hardest thing in the Samba is when we shape it’s usually with our full body,” he explained.

Saffron explained: “He’s like pushing my legs into the right positions, my arms, shoulders, my head.

“I am finding it really difficult it’s not something I do in my normal everyday life.”

“She knows the steps she’s just got to get them in the right order,” AJ added.

Earlier in the week, Saffron and AJ joined Rylan in the It Takes Two studio where the professional dancer discussed his ‘curse’ further.

Speaking about the new routine, Saffron said: “It’s tough. AJ’s told me it’s like one of the hardest dances on the show.”

Jumping in, the professional added: “It is one of the hardest dances on the show technically. So much rise and fall in the back and that bounce action, it’s really hard to master.

“Unfortunately, the past two years, I’ve gone out on Samba.”

“Well, it’s been nice knowing you,” Rylan quipped, as AJ hit back saying this was the year the curse would be lifted.

“This is going to be the year…Samba curse, gone,” he declared.

Saffron added she was “praying” she wouldn’t suffer the same fate on the weekend.

“Even year it happens to him. We can’t let it happen again,” the social media star remarked.
