On Strictly with Gordon Ramsay, Aljaz Skorjanec admits to ‘supporting the competition.’
While preparing for the first live broadcast with his partner Sara Davies, ALJAZ SKORJANEC admitted to “supporting the competition” on Strictly Come Dancing 2021.
On Strictly Come Dancing 2021, Aljaz Skorjanec, 31, made a pretty bold remark regarding his allegiance. The professional dancer is gearing up for his Strictly debut with new partner Sara Davies, 37, from Dragons’ Den, but that didn’t stop him from paying a visit to his rival’s family firm.
Aljaz, who is married to Janette Manrara, a former Strictly pro and host of It Takes Two, revealed that he was “basically supporting the competition” by dining at one of Gordon Ramsay’s London restaurants.
It comes as Aljaz and Sarah prepare to compete for the Glitterball trophy against chef Gordon Ramsay’s daughter Tilly Ramsay, 19, and her partner Nikita Kuzmin, 23.
While having a fantastic dinner at Gordon Ramsay’s Street Burger bistro, Aljaz made the remark apologetically.
The dancer captioned a photo of his cheeseburger to his 469,000 Instagram followers, “Basically supporting the competition!”
“It’s worth it!” exclaims the narrator. He made a remark.
Aljaz also tagged Tilly, Gordon, and Nikita in his post, allowing them to know what he was up to.
Despite “supporting” Tilly through his restaurant choice, Aljaz used social media to promote his own dancing partner Sara ahead of Saturday’s first live event.
He posted a photo of the two in the training room after finishing their final day of rehearsals.
“This is us,” Aljaz captioned the adorable photo. Before we perform it in the @bbcstrictly studio, we did one last run of the CHA CHA CHA.
“I can’t wait to show my @saradaviescc that wonderful floor. You’ve heard it before. ‘You never forget your first one,’ and we’ll make sure you don’t forget ours either!
“After our dance, I want everyone’s face to seem as happy and eager as possible. After it, we can’t help but smile and be joyful… that’s why we do it!!!
“Let’s do this together,” says the partner.
Gordon’s daughter Tilly recently confessed that her father was not pleased with the news that she would be dancing with Nikita.
Although the famous chef appeared to be overjoyed at the debut program after Tilly informed him through FaceTime, things were not as happy behind the scenes.
It follows Tilly and Gordon’s active entertainment schedule. “Brinkwire News in Condensed Form.”
