Nicky Byrne: Bottom two was good for us
Nicky Byrne and Karen Hauer think being in the bottom two on 'Strictly Come Dancing' was the "best thing" that could have happened to them because it gave them "the fire" to work harder on their next performance.
Nicky Byrne and Karen Hauer think being in the bottom two on 'Strictly Come Dancing' was the "best thing" that could have happened to them.
The former Westlife star and his professional dance partner went from a low score two weeks ago to their personal best of 36 at the weekend, and the pair think their previous poor feedback gave them the "fire" to work harder.
Karen said: "Being in the bottom two was the worst thing that could have ever happened but it really was the best thing for us because it gave us even more oomph and more fire and so when we went into that studio it really was 'work, work, work' with not that many breaks."
This weekend, the pair will tackle the Argentine tango and after watching the feedback Michael Vaughan and his partner Natalie Lowe received for their version of the dance last week, they have taken the critique on board and are hopeful they can do better with theirs.
Speaking on spin-off show 'Strictly Come Dancing: It Takes Two', Nicky said: "It's going well. I watched Vaughny at the weekend and listened to what the judges said to him, they felt he didn't deliver or tell the story of the dance, but what has been my strong point so far is the character, what with the mask and the tango, so I think with this it's about really delivering the performance."
