The Strictly Come Dancing live tour got off to a spectacular start in Birmingham tonight but it will be remembered for more than just the costumes and routines.
Strictly lovers Joe Sugg and Dianne Buswell may have fallen for each other in a big way but during their show dance, they spectacularly fell over each other as their number finished with them on their hands and knees.
Moving swiftly around the edge of the stage, their legs got entangled during the ‘rise and fall’ of the dance and within a second they had hit the floor and tumbled over.
Styling it out, they were quickly on their feet and 29-year-old dance professional Dianne punched the air in delight as if it was all part of the show.
YouTuber Joe, 27, quickly acknowledged the slip on social media, tweeting "Oops" along with some embarrassed face emojis.
He later tweeted the reason why it happened, telling his 5.5 million followers: "We’re all good btw! Just got caught up in the rock n roll of it all P.s. if you don’t know what I’m on about you need to come see this tour!"
It must have stood the pair in good stead as well because they were later crowned the ‘winners’ for the evening, leading them to sing Queen’s ‘We Are The Champions’ in an Instagram story video, minutes after the show finished.
The live show’s choreographer, Strictly judge Craig Revel Horwood, certainly had a few thoughts about the fall, giving Joe a two on the night and probably a flea in his ear ahead of the remaining 27 nights of the tour.
