Published

Strictly Come Dancing host Claudia Winkleman has apologised for making a jibe about Karim Zeroual following his performance in Saturday’s show. 

The presenter joked that she would bring Karim ‘back a stick of rock’ from Blackpool if he was eliminated this week, after he was left in tears following a mistake in his Viennese Waltz.

But after it was revealed on Sunday’s results show that Karim, 25, and his professional dance partner Amy Dowden, 28, had made it through to next week, Claudia said she was ‘really sorry’ for the joke.

After the show favourites finished with a score of 30 out of 40 following two mistakes from Karim, he tearfully told Claudia that he was ‘gutted’ to have messed up the dance during Saturday’s show. 

Claudia then turned to a still-crying Karim and said: ‘We’ll also have Blackpool rock, and if you’re not there we’ll bring you some back.’

The comment sparked gasps from the audience, and Claudia attempted to backtrack by saying: ‘I don’t mean that…’

But on Sunday Claudia told Karim she was ‘really sorry’ about the joke after he and Amy avoided being one of the two couples in Sunday’s dance off.

She said: ‘First of all I’m really sorry about the rock joke, I was just trying to make you laugh but I felt so bad.’

A friendly Karim then replied: ‘You did make me laugh, don’t be sorry, I wasn’t upset, I was just disappointed about my dance but I love you for that, you know I love you.’

Claudia then asked the star how it felt to be safely through to next week’s show.

She said: ‘I know you love me but I know you were disappointed, how relieved are you to be through?’

The presenter replied: ‘I was shocked, I was adamant I was going to be in that dance off so thank you to everyone supporting, I was just gutted that I messed up really.’

Fans called out Claudia for the ‘savage’ dig, though other were quick to defend the star by saying the comment left them in hysterics.

Karim had taken to the floor with Amy to dance a Viennese Waltz to Ed Sheeran’s Give Me Love.

Despite being one of the frontrunners this series, the CBBC presenter made two ‘big mistakes’ during the routine, with the judges stating it must have come down to nerves. 

One Strictly fan wrote of Claudia’s comment: ‘Claudia was just BRUTAL to Karim with her comment about bringing rock back *if they’re not there’*… harsh much!’ 

Another added: ‘Oh DAMN Claudia so the theme is ”awkward” this week…’

A third posted: ‘Wow Claudia punch him while he’s down #Strictly,’ while one fan also tweeted: ‘Harsh Claudia.’ 

‘Ouch Claudia that was brutal!’ one posted while a fan also tweeted: ‘If you’re not there we’ll bring some back!! Claudia is Queen!!’ 

An irate viewer also tweeted: ‘First Motsi tells Neil it’s like Alex had an affair, now Claudia’s told an upset Karim than if he doesn’t make it Blackpool they’ll bring him some rock back. I love both of them, but wow!’ [sic]

Meanwhile on Sunday’s show presenter Mike Bushell and his partner Katya Jones faced disappointment as they left the show. 

They were in the dance off against Ru Paul’s Drag Race star Michelle Visage, 51, and her partner Giovanni Pernice, 29. 

Mike and Katya had already been in the dance off three times and the judging panel voted unanimously to send them home.

She’s the former Bachelor contestant who isn’t afraid to speak her mind.

And at this year’s Derby Day, racegoers were left shocked when Keira Maguire approached a Channel 10 executive and ‘demanded’ that he cast her on another reality show.

According to Woman’s Day, the 33-year-old walked up to the network’s head of programming, Daniel Monaghan, and asked to be on next year’s season of Dancing with the Stars.

‘I wanted to do it… You promised!’ she reportedly shouted at Mr Monaghan.

According to other guests in Channel 10’s marquee, Mr Monaghan spent the rest of the day trying his best to avoid Keira. 

It comes after Keira confirmed she will be returning to the Bachelor franchise for a third time next year as contestant on Bachelor in Paradise.

But she has no intention of finding a boyfriend and only wants to create drama.

Speaking to the Herald Sun at the Melbourne Cup, the Sydney-based socialite said she’s not going ‘to find love but [instead] f**k s**t up.’

Keira made her reality TV debut on Richie Strahan’s season of The Bachelor in 2016.

She later appeared on I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! before signing up as a contestant on Bachelor in Paradise’s first season in 2018.

Keira fell in love with former Bachelorette star Jarrod Woodgate on Paradise, but the couple broke up earlier this year after an on-again-off-again romance.

Season three of Bachelor in Paradise will begin filming in Fiji in the coming weeks and is scheduled to air on Channel 10 early next year.

Married At First Sight star Jules Robinson’s real life wedding to Cameron Merchant later this month is proving to be anything but a fairy-tale behind the scenes.

Daily Mail Australia can reveal the 37-year-old has implemented a list of ‘demands’ for both guests and vendors to abide by, after selling exclusive access inside the star-studded event to Channel Nine for a two-part special. 

In the first promo, which was shared on Sunday, the network dubbed the upcoming event as the ‘wedding of the year’, with their build-up to the big day expected to air on November 27th, followed by the star-studded ceremony on the 28th.

In order to protect the lucrative television exclusive, Jules has told people they are prohibited from sharing anything to social media until 10 days after it’s aired on TV.

Not just this, but anybody working the big day are required to sign a non-disclosure agreement, legally gagging them from discussing any details publicly.

During the ceremony and reception afterwards, the couple have secured sponsors to provide complimentary services, including alcohol.

Jules is said to have promised the brands will receive positive coverage on TV, and be included in the rolling credits during the Channel Nine special.

Last month, Daily Mail Australia revealed the couple had angered one small business in Sydney by asking for ‘freebies’ worth thousands of dollars, in exchange for publicity on Instagram and a flash of their logo on Channel Nine. 

They have described their requests for freebies as ‘social spend’, predicting the TV special will attract up to 1.2 million viewers, on top of their reach on Instagram.

In recent months, Jules has also been brutally culling the guest list too, with some of the couple’s oldest friends snubbed, much to their confusion. 

JULES AND CAM’S ‘WEDDING RULES’

-Attendees must not ‘post to social media until 10 days after TV special’

-Guests to ‘have phones confiscated’ and ‘left in dark’ about the venue

-All staff must sign non-disclosure agreements

-Close friends culled from guest list to prevent ‘weak links’ leaking info

-Sponsors asked to provide free services as ‘social spend’

-Sponsors to be included in the TV special’s rolling credits

‘Some people have no idea why they’ve been cut, they just keep telling people they’re worried about “weak links” ruining their exclusive,’ a source said.  

Melissa Lucarelli, who starred on Married At First Sight with the couple, recently slammed Jules for dumping her as a bridesmaid via text message. 

‘Just cause I said it on the show doesn’t mean I have to do it,’ Jules reportedly told Melissa via text message while dumping her from the bridal party.

Woman’s Day claimed on Monday that friends who have made the guest list are being ‘kept in the dark’ about the location to prevent details leaking.

‘It’s become a business transaction as well as a wedding now,’ a source told the magazine, adding that ‘guests’ phones will be confiscated’. 

The publication added that there will be ‘CCTV footage at the venue, so they can catch anyone who doesn’t abide by requests’. 

Their wedding is in strong contrast to their engagement party in April, which had 200 guests, including journalists and media, and was filmed for Nine news.

‘We spent a lot of our own money and didn’t make a cent from our engagement party,’ Jules said at the time, amid claims Nine paid them $50,000 for access.

Jules and Cam were initially scheduled to marry in September, on the one-year anniversary of filming their MAFS wedding, but postponed the ceremony until November.

They are said to have recently moved the location from the Hunter Valley to Sydney’s CBD after signing a lucrative deal with Channel Nine to televise the event.

According to New Idea, the last minute venue change made it ‘logistically easier to film’ as it ‘was going to be too costly for the whole crew to travel so far away.’

Daily Mail Australia has contacted Jules and Cameron’s manager, Benji Hart of THE.mgmt, for comment.

Delta Goodrem is known for her relatable, down-to-earth attitude.

But the 35-year-old songstress let her chauffeur do the heavy lifting as she touched down in Los Angeles on Sunday. 

Despite having longtime boyfriend Matthew Copley on hand, Delta’s driver pushed her designer luggage as she made her way out of LAX airport.

Looking every inch stylish jet-setter, Delta wowed in a chic striped two piece suit.

The statuesque beauty stood out from the crowd in round shades, with her signature blonde mane falling loosely over her shoulders. 

Delta teamed her off-duty look with a pair of white sneakers and a matching leather tote bag.

Meanwhile, musician Matthew cut a casual figure as he stepped out in a pair of tight-fitting black trousers and a black leather biker jacket.

Like Delta, Matthew opted for white sneakers and wore his long hair out over his shoulders in a loose wave.  

The sighting comes after Delta celebrated her 35th birthday on Saturday with a luxury cruise around Sydney Harbour with close friends and family.
