Strictly star ‘scared’ to wear glitzy dresses
Strictly star Saffron Barker has admitted she was “scared” to wear glitzy dresses when she took part in the BBC series.
She also discussed the backlash Tilly Ramsay received following LBC’s radio host Steve Allen comments on Tilly’s weigh.
Saffron took part in the 2019 series of Strictly and was partnered up with AJ Pritchard, who has since left the BBC show.
The YouTuber admitted that she was “scared” of wearing the glitzy and glamorous costumes because of what people might say.
Saffron began to say: “I was the same age [as Tilly] when I was on the show, so I feel like I’ve experienced what she has experienced, and it is really tough
“She also got a lot of stick as well, but I don’t think she deserved to have that.
“When you’re on the show, you’re working however many hours a day and being the youngest contestant on the show, I think it’s a lot.”
Discussing her own experience on Strictly, Saffron explained: “I think being a young girl that was on the show as well, that was something I was most scared of.
“And when I went on the show, wearing certain dresses and stuff, it’s completely outside your comfort zone.”
