Strictly Come Dancing contestant Lulu has admitted that she was disappointed with her performance in the first live show of 2011. The singer finished bottom of the judges scoreboard on Friday.

After forgetting some of her steps, she scored only 17 points with judge Craig Revel Horwood describing her dance as a ‘complete disaster’.

Speaking about her disappointment, she said: “Oh my god it just hit me like a brick! I am gutted – Feel so bad. I let all the people down who support me. I will try harder next week.”

Another man disappointed with his performance was ex-footballer Robbie Savage. He finished above Lulu on 19 points and received some negative from the judges too.

He tweeted: “Gutted for Ola, give everything, but I must realise I’m going out first! I feel like throwing the towel in, don’t know if I can give everything, train train train and get hammered at end of it! Knew it!”

Savage’s dance partner Ola stuck up for him though, tweeting: “Robbie feels like he let me down and he didn’t, so proud of him!!!”

Elsewhere in Strictly Come Dancing news after the first live shows, the professional dancers have been told to tone down their raunchy dance moves during the early evening show.

An insider said: “Strictly has made a name for itself with its raunchy costumes and sexy routines.”

“But bosses felt things had gone too far this year and stepped in before the show aired to get some of the moves clipped.”

“They were concerned viewers might be shocked at some of the more sexy moves planned for the first two live shows.”

“Dancers could get away with more on Friday’s show because it aired after the 9pm watershed.”

“But Saturday’s went out at 6pm when a lot more families were watching. Going forward, that will be the time it normally airs, so you have to be careful about these things.”
