The EastEnders actress got emotional after listening to the judges’ comments
This has been one of the most eventful Strictly Come Dancing series so far – with multiple injuries, a partner swap and plenty of tears. And during It Takes Two on Friday, East Enders actress Emma Barton revealed that she was overcome with emotion after her dance with Anton du Beke having listened to the judges’ comments following their performance. Talking to Rylan Clark-Neal on the BBC Two show, Emma Barton was discussing her Tango during Halloween week, and how Craig Revel Horwood’s comments had left her feeling a bit upset. “I was a bit sad if I am brutally honest,” she said. “Teary, I’m going to say it,” Anton interjected. “I was a bit teary,” Emma admitted.
Anton continued: “It upsets me more because I don’t want to see her upset. I want her to enjoy the experience. I thought they were unfair.” However, Emma was determined not to let the comments get her down, adding: “You have to listen, they have a job to do and I have a job to do and it really makes me want to go out there and fight and up my game.” The following evening, the couple went back onto the dance floor where they performed the Rumba to Barbra Streisand’s Woman In Love. Unfortunately, the couple didn’t get the mark they were hoping for, and received 22 points from the judges.
