Comedian Chris Ramsey is 'doing Shields proud' in Strictly Come Dancing, readers say
Strictly Come Dancing fans across South Tyneside and beyond are flying the flag for Chris Ramsey and Karen Hauer as they prepare for week four of the programme.
The comedian and his professional partner breathed an audible sign of relief on Sunday night’s results show as they lived to dance another week, with TV personality Anneka Rice becoming the second celebrity to be sent home.
Chris took to Twitter afterwards and thanked the public for their support – promising exciting things for the next show.
He added: “I’ll be back next week with a new dance, less basketball hands and hopefully a better face during the results ... no promises though. Big love guys.”
Supporters everywhere were also feeling the love, sharing their own messages with Chris and Karen after they made it through to next week’s live show.
