Strictly Come Dancing 2021 cast member Sara Davies has revealed how she and the other stars of Dragons’ Den stay comfortable when they’re on set, comparing the footwear to the heels she’s going to have to wear on the dancefloor.
When the stars of the new series of Strictly kick off the show, there are many things they’re going to have to get used to.
In addition to the spangly costumes they’re going to have to wear, a signature part of the show, they will also have to wear certain types of shoes when they perform their routines.
During a recent Q&A attended by Metro.co.uk and other press, Sara outlined that while she is shown wearing heels when she’s on Dragons’ Den, she actually doesn’t wear high-heeled shoes all the time while filming.
This means that the idea of wearing heels while dancing the Salsa may be even more out of her comfort zone than viewers realise.
‘In Dragons’ Den, I don’t know if you realise, what they do is, we walk around in our slippers all day, and then the shoes they put on set,’ she said.
‘So we come onto set in our slippers, and then wardrobe take the slippers and we put our shoes on.’
While filming Dragons’ Den, there are sometimes instances where she and the other Dragons have to get up from their seats and inspect the products being put forward to them.
However, other than that, any walking they do in the Den when filming has been stopped is in their comfy slippers, she said.
Having been a part of Dragons’ Den since 2019, some fans may be wondering how her role in the show could be incorporated into her campaign for the Glitterball Trophy on Strictly.
Sara said that she’d be ‘well up for doing a dragon-themed move’ – something which we would definitely love to see.
Ahead of the Strictly series launch, she revealed she was most looking forward to the ballroom numbers, such as the Waltz and the American Smooth, because she loves the ‘floaty dresses’ the women get to wear.
Could Sara be the new ballroom queen of Strictly? We can’t wait to find out!
Strictly Come Dancing 2021 launches on Saturday September 18 at 7.45pn on BBC One.
