'Strictly Come Dancing' 2015: Anthony Ogogo Suffers Wardrobe Malfunction As His Trousers Split During Routine On First Live Show

Strictly Come Dancing’ contestant Anthony Ogogo’s first turn on the dancefloor proved to be a memorable one, after splitting his trousers on the first live show.


The Olympic boxer was left red-faced when he tore his trousers during his performance with partner Oti Mabuse on Friday (25 September) night's show.

The pair’s jive to Wham’s ‘Wake Me Up Before You Go Go’ may have impressed the judges, but when they had finished dancing, Anthony could be heard telling Oti something had happened. .

He then told host Tess Daly: "I've got a massive split in my trousers, look Tess."

As he bent over, he revealed how his trews had bust at the seams.

A slight wardrobe malfunction but nothing to worry about ladies,” Tess joked.

"When you walk out, walk sideways," she added.

Anthony and Oti ended up fourth on the leaderboard with 21 points out of a possible 40, as the first six couples took to the floor for the first time.

'Call The Midwife' actress Helen George topped the scoreboard for the evening, being awarded 29/40 for her waltz to 'With You I'm Born Again' by Billy Preston & Syreeta Wright, with partner Aljaž Skorjanec.

EastEnders’ actress Kellie Bright was placed joint second, with 27/40 for her tango to The Kinks’ ‘You Really Got Me’ with partner Kevin Clifton, while Antia Rani also scored the same for her cha-cha-cha to Clean Bandit's 'Rather Be'.

Singer Daniel O’Donnell was a surprise high scorer, picking up 24 for his waltz to Bing Crosby’s ‘When Irish Eyes Are Smiling’, placing him and partner Kristina Rihanoff third on the scoreboard.

There was less success for ‘BBC Breakfast’ weather presenter Carol Kirkwood though, as her cha-cha-cha to Leo Sayer’s ‘Thunder In My Heart’ was awarded just 16 points, earning her and Pasha Kovalev the honour of being bottom of the leaderboard.

The remaining nine couples will take to the floor on tonight’s show at 6.15pm on BBC One.
