'Strictly Come Dancing' 2015: Kirsty Gallacher Rubbishes Reports This Is The 'Bitchiest' Series Yet

Strictly Come Dancing’ contestant Kirsty Gallacher has hit out at claims this is the “bitchiest” series of the show there has ever been.


The Sky Sports presenter has insisted the cast are all one big happy family behind-the-scenes and reports to the contrary could not be “further from the truth”.

Speaking to MailOnline, she said: "I'm not competing with anyone. There was a story that came out that said it’s the b****iest Strictly line-up so far but that couldn’t be further from the truth.

"We’re one massive family, there’s no bitchiness at all. Every Friday and Saturday we all come together, the dancers, the pro dancers and all the team, and we’re always supporting each other."

She added: "As much as it’s a competition, I think the viewers need to remember that we’re all in it to have fun too."


However, the fun was nearly over for Kirsty and her partner Brendan Cole last weekend, as the couple ended up in the dance-off with Daniel O’Donnell and his partner Kristina Rihanoff.

Kirsty and Brendan had failed to impress the judges with their Paso Doble, scoring just 21 points out of 40.

They were spared from elimination though, as Craig Revel Horwood, Darcey Bussell, Len Goodman and Bruno Tonioli sent Daniel and Kristina home.

This week, Kirsty hoping to increase her score as she takes on the Viennese Waltz to David Gray’s ‘This Year’s Love’.

‘Strictly Come Dancing’ continues on Saturday at 6.35pm on BBC One.
