Dancing to Cheltenham …. – Football & Racing News – Star Sports

Well, they say that all good things come to an end and my Dancing With The Stars journey finally ended last night when I was knocked out writes DAVY RUSSELL.

Of course, it’s sad when it comes to an end, but I actually surprised myself how far I got.

The truth is I thought I was in trouble last week as my dancing wasn’t great, but somehow I managed to stay in.

I actually didn’t dance too bad last night – I might have actually fooled a few tuning in for the first time that I could dance a bit.

We danced to Never Tear Us Apart by INXS and it wasn’t terrible I swear.

That said, it wasn’t enough to keep me in though and that’s probably the fairest thing as the rest left in are fiercely good. I mean that they can properly dance.

As for Kylee, my dance partner, she has done a remarkable job. There will be plenty of chat this week about extraordinary training performances, but not many will better what she managed to do with me.

She’s a great craic and her patience and belief in me has been extraordinary.

The support I have had from everyone has been remarkable and I’m so very grateful.

I’ve jumped on an airplane first thing this morning to head to Cheltenham so haven’t had a chance for a debrief with Edelle and the kids.

They will have a view for sure and the kids will be more gutted than anyone – they were convinced I was coming home with the silver ball!

Off to Cheltenham

At the time of writing, I have just arrived at the track here in Cheltenham.

There’s been a fair bit of rain around and the ground will ride soft for sure tomorrow – I believe there is more rain due in the morning.

I will be catching up with Gordon and the lads later so will fill you in on any news.

I’m doing a preview in aid of Graham Lee later – that’s such an important cause and keeps us all grounded.

Anyway, I’ll be on the track tomorrow and will hopefully catch up with a few of you.


I’ve also entered the Star Sports Knockout tipping competition and have drawn James Knight in the first round. I’m sure James was happy to see that news 😉

That will be it for me as I head home tomorrow night as I’ve a fair few more bits to do with Dancing With The Stars ahead of the finale on Sunday night.

Good luck at Cheltenham everyone ahead of a magical four days.
