STRICTLY Come Dancing viewers were left in stitches tonight when host Claudia Winkleman mocked a sound glitch with a gag about a dolphin. The dancers were left bemused when a loud screech was heard after Paralympic triathlete Lauren Steadman was awarded 35 points. Claudia quipped: “That wasn’t me. Was it a dolphin?”, before adding: “I’m not joking, everyone wants to go to Blackpool.. even the animals.” Fans praised the host’s humour despite the awkward technical glitch. One said: “*Mic squeals on strictly and Winkleman says “Was that a dolphin?” Genuinely the first time one of her gags has made me laugh since replacing Brucie #Strictly.” Another added: “That wasn’t me. Was that a dolphin?” That’s how you deal with weird technical stuff. A+ recovery. I love you, @ClaudiaWinkle.” Someone else said: “That wasn’t me. Was it a dolphin?” Oh @ClaudiaWinkle you are an absolute LEGEND! #strictly.” Another added: “Feel like claudia isn’t appreciated enough bc that “was that a dolphin” had me dead.” Got a story? email [email protected] or call us direct on 02077824220.
