Strictly 2014: Andy Murray Joins Mum Judy In Dance Training With Anton Du Beke

Better late than never, eh?

It may have taken SEVEN WEEKS, but we finally got the Strictly Come Dancing cameo that we had ALL been waiting for last night.

Yes, tennis coach Judy Murray was joined at her dance training by son, Andy Murray.


The Wimbledon champ even managed to squeeze in a cheeky dance with his mother, after much encouragement, but proved to be just as awkward when it came to busting the moves as she is.

In fact, the entire thing was so stiff that it made Judy’s professional dance partner Anton du Beke retort: “I know where you get it from.”

Well, they do say that the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree.

The 27-year-old, who has been competing in the ATP world Tour Finals admitted in the video trailer that he found it difficult to hear the judges’ negative comments about his mum during her time on the competition, which unfortunately continued after last night’s performance.

Head judge Len Goodman said after her Paso routine: “If stiffness was a crime, you’d get life.”

Before notorious Mr. Nasty of the dancing world, Craig Revel Horwood added: “It was all very pedestrian, you just walked your way through it. 

“It would have been nice to see some dancing. I’ve given up!”

Boo, hiss etc. etc.

Poor Judy found herself at the bottom of the leaderboard once again, but given the huge amount of public support she has been getting we have no doubt that she’ll be sailing through to next week’s show. 

We just hope that her son will be making more and more appearances as the show goes on.

And speaking of supportive family members, pro dancer Ola Jordan’s hubby James has been making a bit of a show of himself on Twitter these past 24 hours.

The Celebrity Big Brother star went absolutely cray-cray at claims that his wife was ‘bullying’ her celeb partner, Steve Backshall.

Indulging in a pretty brilliant Twitter rant, James accused the BBC of having a vendetta against Ola, wanting to turn the public against her. 

The BBC are yet to comment on James’ tweets, but we have a feeling that he is one celeb who will not be making an apperance on the show anytime soon…
