Strictly speaking fans spot Emma Thompson in audience with her supporting daughter Greg Wise
The Love Actually actress was there to watch her husband Greg Wise speak with professional partner Karen Hauer to perform American Smooth
Strictly Come Dancing fans were stunned on Saturday night to see Emma Thompson in the audience with her daughter Gaia.
The Love Actually actress was there to support her husband Greg Wise, who is on this year’s series with her professional partner Karen Hauer.
As the couple took to the dance floor to perform American Smooth on That’s Life by Frank Sinatra, the camera turned to Emma and her daughter as they cheered on Greg.
Viewers were shocked to see her in Elstree’s studio and took to Twitter for comment.
âEmma fucking Thompson is there ?! Biiiiiii ** h! I’m dead #Strictly,â one person posted.
A second tweeted: “Entirely obsessed with Emma Thompson just having her best life in the #Strictly audience.”
A third person added: “Emma Thompson brings me to life on #Strictly.”
And a fourth viewer wrote: “Emma Thompson at #Strictly is my favorite Strictly moment. She is 100% my favorite actress.”
Another fan tweeted: “QUEEN Emma Thompson gracing her presence on #Strictly.”
After their performance, Greg and Karen went upstairs to speak with host Claudia Winkleman and wait for the judges’ marks.
Once again, the camera turned to Emma as Greg revealed that it was she who persuaded him to make the BBC series.
“I’m pathetically grateful for my love,” Greg told Emma, ââas he said of the show, “Come on, what’s not to love?”
And Greg was more than happy with his score of 24, after Craig Revel Horwood and Motsi Mabuse gave him a six, while Shirley Ballas gave them a five and Anton Du Beke scored them a seven. Greg and Karen deserved? Add your scores to our Strictly Scoreboard here.
