Angela Rippon, 79, reveals she lost a stone with her gruelling Strictly Come ... trends now
The 79-year-old broadcaster appeared on Friday's Loose Women, where she spoke to panellists Kaye Adams, Nadia Sawalha, Jane Adams and Gloria Hunniford about her time on Strictly in her first TV interview since leaving the show last month.
Angela - who was paired with pro dancer Kai Widdrington - said of life post-Strictly: 'I have got stronger, my asthma has improved incredibly because obviously my lung function is better and I’ve lost a stone in weight.
'I just loved doing it and although it was a bit like going to a bootcamp because of the exercise you’re having to do, I just enjoyed every minute of it.'
This led to Angela's friend Gloria commenting: 'I’ve decided Angela is made of titanium… and that’s the strength for sure!'
