Ruth Langsford forgot her Strictly Come Dancing routine

uth Langsford forgot her dance just minutes before she was due to perform on "Strictly Come Dancing" over the weekend.

The "This Morning" presenter found herself at the bottom of the leader board - scoring a measly 16 points from the judges - on Saturday (23.09.17) night after she made a few mistakes during her Waltz with her professional partner Anton du Beke, but she has admitted she was actually proud of herself because she didn't think she'd be able to remember any of the moves when she was watching and waiting for her fellow competitors to perform.

Speaking on "Loose Women" on Monday (25.09.17), she said: "I can honestly say, I've never been so nervous - ever! I've done live television for 30 years ... but I think it was waiting to go on.

"I made a mistake though. The thing is, Eamonn [Holmes, her husband] did say to me: "Oh I did see you do a little trot." And I said: "There's no such thing as a trot." I have to say, everything the judges said to me was absolutely right.

"When I was on the sofa and Anton was walking towards me, I remember thinking: "I don't think I'm going to be able to get up." The thing is, I have handed myself over to "Strictly Come Dancing". You go in and it's very showbiz, there's glitter and everyone is rushing around. Actually, the dress rehearsal, if I could've just done that, it would have been perfect.

"Anton was fantastic. I was watching everyone and in my eyes they were all brilliant. And at one point I turned to Anton and I said: "I've forgotten the dance!" And he said: "No you haven't!" and I said: "No, I have." And he took me downstairs - I was trying to go to the exit - and he's so brilliant and took me away from seeing people."

The 57-year-old host was also shocked by her friend Craig Revel Horwood's behaviour towards her as she has worked with him for many years and couldn't believe it when he refused to smile at her when she was waiting for the music cue.

She explained: "It's funny when I saw him before because I'm sitting on that sofa waiting and and I smile and he just went [eyebrow raise] and I thought: "Oh it's obviously not the Craig we know on here."

"And then later I saw him and he said: "Oh hello darling." And I won't tell you what I said back. But I said: "Bottom of the leader board!" And he said: "Darling, it's the bottom that everyone talks about. The top and the bottom!" "

"Strictly Come Dancing" will return to screens this weekend on BBC.
