Clara and her professional dancer partner Aljaz Skorjanec faced Jamie Laing and Karen Hauer in the dreaded dance-off on Sunday night’s Strictly Come Dancing and sadly did not make it through to week seven of the BBC series. Reflecting on her time on the show, Clara shared an emotional message with fans as she returned to her job on BBC Radio 1.
Moments into her weekday show, Clara admitted it was a “peak Monday” as she addressed the end of her Strictly journey.
“I’m going to say it again, maybe not for the final time but I just want to make explicitly clear and abundant, I am so so so grateful for the kindness and the love and the jokes and the effort that has been made for me and shown to me these past few weeks since I started doing Strictly.
“It is truly overwhelming if I am being honest.
“It’s just really lovely to be reminded that people are just really cool, people are lovely and it’s nice to be connected to people that way.Insurance Loans Mortgage Attorney Credit Lawyer

“It’s been so heartwarming to feel you all and connect with you all just by dancing about on the TV.
“Yeah, I just want to say thank you so big up every one.
“Now back to my day job, I am no longer a jobbing show girl, I’m a full-time music broadcaster and meme sharer, it’s what I do.”
Clara and Aljaz had been at the bottom of the leaderboard on Saturday night after she made a few mistakes with her Jive to Tina Turner’s River Deep, Mountain High.
