Lulu: My first week on Strictly…


Lulu Welcome to my Strictly Come Dancing blog… I am so excited to be a part of the show and I want to take all of you along for the ride!

My first dance is behind me – and although the Cha Cha didn't go quite according to plan, it was a really good learning experience. I missed a step and didn’t recover for what seemed like the longest time! I was gutted that I let Brendan and all my supporters down.

Hopefully, I can redeem myself this week… if I don't, it certainly won't be for lack of trying!!!

So, this week is all about getting the steps drilled into my head and my body, my very being! Major boot camp! Onwards and upwards! Fingers crossed!

While I didn't get top scores for my dancing, my hair seemed to go over a lot better thanks to my Operation Glam Larger than Life Shampoo and Glammunition Thickening Elixir which my hair extra volume. My saving grace was the Strike a Pose Modeling Hairspray, which kept my style in shape through all the head tossing and spins!

When I agreed to appear on Strictly I knew it would be a challenge… and it is!!! I would like nothing more than to 'represent' for all of us "pensioners" (haha) whose minds are far younger than their bodies!!!!

Until next week,

    I thought you looked fabulous and carried it off really well, despite the minor slip-up. You’re still the most glamorous contestant on the show and I’ll be rooting for you every week. You’re an inspiration to all of us ladies ‘of a certain age’ and I’m loving your skin-care products. Good luck for the weekend! Ally x

    You are an inspiration Lulu, I know how difficult it is trying to remember dance steps. Take your time and you will be fine. Enjoy the strictly experience, we are all behind you no matter what. Go Girl!
