Why is Daisy Lowe doing Strictly Come Dancing?
We spoke to Daisy ahead of Strictly’s first live show…
Why are you doing Strictly? Oh, wait one minute! [the intro to Madonna’s Lucky Star plays] Every day at 11am I have an alarm, to remind me to be thankful for doors opening for me.
Like Strictly? Yes! Dancing is such an uplifting, joyful practice and such a special part of existing, so I had to say yes when they asked.
Have you prepared? I’ve been celebrating hard because I knew once the show started I’d have to knuckle down. No more partying!
Have you had your first spray tan? No, I don’t think I will. I like being Snow White.
And the tight dresses and sparkles? I’m such a magpie for sparkles. I’ve been a model for 12 years so nothing fazes me. On my first day I was like, “Go on, give it to me! Do whatever you want!”
