It Takes Tai Chi To Tango – Webbe
Strictly Come Dancing’s Simon Webbe has revealed that he has turned to tai chi to calm his nerves – and reckons it may be behind his colossal scores.
The Blue singer said he used the ancient art for the first time before the Blackpool heat, which saw him and partner Kristina Rihanoff receive top marks from three of the four judges.
He said today: “The thing is about the live shows, it all creeps up on you as soon as you put the clothes on. Right now I feel pretty cool, but I’m sure tomorrow there’ll be heart palpitations and me going off into a corner to do some tai chi and calm myself down
“I did it for the first time last week before I did the tango and I think I’m going to do it again. It really calmed me and put me in the zone. If it works for me a second time I’ll definitely carry on with it.”
Webbe admitted he is not expecting to match last week’s scores from the Tower Ballroom, which saw him jointly topping the leaderboard with Pixie Lott.
The singer – performing a salsa in tomorrow’s BBC1 show – said: “In the back of my mind the pressure is there, but there’s no way I’m going to get three 10s again. I don’t want to say I won’t, but it would be nice if I did.”
He has been delighted by the reaction of fans since he did so well on last week’s show.
Webbe said of the reaction: “I’m flabbergasted, I still haven’t come down, to be honest. This whole week has been really different – people in the streets and the way people are looking at me now – and all because of the Argentine tango, I suppose.”
