Strictly: Greg Wise says his elimination was a ‘matter of time’

Strictly Come Dancing star Greg Wise has admitted “I’m not a dancer” and said it was “only a matter of time” before he left the competition.

The actor and his professional partner Karen Hauer became the third couple to be voted off from the BBC One competition and he took to Instagram to share his thoughts on leaving the show.

He told fans: “Hello my lovely friends. So it happened, I got booted out! Fair enough. I don’t think I’m a dancer really!

“And by this time in the show you’ve got to be good and everyone is dancing so well, it would only be a matter of time. But I’m thrilled that I had the opportunity to do it.”

He thanked fans and signed off the post adding: ”I hope I gave you all a bit of joy anyway. It was great joy for me. Thank you for supporting and thank you for being on the journey with me.”

In a sweet gesture, Greg’s daughter Gaia Wise said he was “remarkable”, adding: ”Maybe you’re not a dancer but you are a wonderful man, wonderful hubby and the best dad in the universe.”



Greg Wise signed up the show to honour his late sister’s love of dancing




Greg and pro-dancer Karen performed a Samba to Macarena by Los Del Rio, scoring themselves 19 points from the panel.

The judges criticised Greg’s catalogue of ”mistakes”, with Shirley saying the actor never ‘really picked it back up’ after going off time at the beginning of the dance.

Giving her verdict, Motsi said: “I think at the beginning it just took a bit of time to get into it. It took a while, but it did get better. I would have needed a little more from the body. Samba is a very clear body action.”

The pair came up against Loose Women panellist Judi Love and her partner Graziano Di Prima who faced their second time in the dance-off.

But judges Craig Revel Horwood, Motsi Mabuse, Anton Du Beke opted to save Judi and Graziano, leaving head judge, Shirley Ballas outnumbered after opting to save Greg.

The star signed up to Strictly in honour of his late sister, Clare Wise, who lost her cancer battle in 2016 aged just 51, and would have loved to watch him on the show.

Greg urged fans in his Instagram video to ‘widen the conversation’ about end of life care, telling them ”to talk to your loved ones”.

He previously broke down in tears as he dedicated his and partner Karen Hauer’s Couple’s Choice routine to Clare – who he cared for throughout her illness.
