STRICTLY Come Dancing’s Ellie Taylor has revealed she and Johannes Radebe suffered a massive technical fault during their performance on the weekend.
The comedienne and actress was left “terrifié” after an audio glitch meant she and her dance partner could not hear their cue to start.
But the 38-year-old admits she spent the entire dance convinced she had done something wrong.
Ellie and Johannes revealed what had happened while appearing on Strictement‘s spin-off show It Takes Two.
She confessed: “There was a bit of an audio issue at the beginning of the dance, so us on the floor couldn’t hear the cue.
“The beginning of the dance didn’t happen as it should have. JoJo’s obviously a very experienced dancer so I thought, if anyone’s done anything a bit weird, c'est moi.
“I spent the whole dancing thinking, ‘I’ve done it wrong, what did I did I do?’ At the end I said, ‘I’m so sorry’.
“It wasn’t until we’d left Claudia’s area that JoJo was like, ‘It wasn’t you. We couldn’t hear’.”
Johannes, 35, a sonné: “je dois dire, I am so proud of my Ellie. When that glitch happened, I literally looked into her eyes and said ‘backbend’. And she followed me.

“It could have gone either way and I think that is why I was so relieved to hear our names called out because it was not how it was meant to be. But we came out with something and kudos to her!”
Ellie also said: “Being live on telly in Blackpool, not knowing where you are and what’s happening, I don’t think I’ve ever been more terrified in my life.”
entre-temps, radio DJ Tyler West and his pro partner Dianne Buswell were the latest dancers to be sent home from Strictly Come Dancing on Sunday night.
