Earlier this week, Bella was asked by her teacher to write a story about something Strictly related at school. She got really excited and decided to write a short story about what happened when the glitterball fell into Anton’s hands. She wanted to share it with you all, so here is Bella’s story about Anton and the Glitterball!
Once upon a time, on a sparkly planet called Planet Strictly, there was a professional dancer called Anton. Anton had lived on Planet Strictly for a very very long time. He loved living there, but wanted one thing. He had come close to touching it but had never got to keep it in the whole of his time there. It was the Glitterball. It sparkled and shone and looked really pretty.
One day before a Strictly live show, Anton saw the Glitterball briefly. He thought to himself “I wonder how I can get to touch it!” He sneaked into the secret Glitterball room where it was stored and found it was everything he thought it would be and even more. There were sparkly lights everywhere, glitter and more importantly the Glitterball.
For once, Anton was able to touch the Glitterball. He held it with both his hands and cuddled it like a teddybear. He thought “I’ll just borrow it for a few hours, nobody will notice!”
The next day, Anton was late. He hurried to the studio (forgetting the glitterball!) He spied Kevin Clifton who told him that Len had called a meeting.
At the meeting Len told all the dancers “The Glitterball has disappeared. It was here yesterday but it has gone. If you’ve seen the Glitterball, let me know, because Strictly cannot go on TV without the Glitterball.”
All the dancers were worried. Kevin started a search party with Giovanni and Aljaz and Betty was taken too to help sniff out the Glitterball. The glitterball was nowhere to be found.
Anton hid away from Len and the other dancers. He felt really bad that he had forgotten the Glitterball, but he loved looking after it. He’d come so close but had never been lucky enough to keep it.
The dancers really needed some help to find the glitterball, when along came Susan, dressed as Wonder Woman! She had magical superhero powers ready for her performance that night. She predicted the Glitterball wasn’t too far, but was not in the studios.
The dancers went off on a hunt. They went around the town, to the station, to the dance studios, to the shops and to the school. The smell of glitter got stronger and stronger with every step they took. They tiptoed through the library looking for it, but it was not to be found there. Then they reached somewhere where the scent was even stronger. Betty barked. When they looked up, they realised, they were at Anton’s house!
“Why would Anton ever steal a glitterball?” Asked Giovanni.
“I guess he just wanted to see what it would feel like to win!” Said Kevin.
The found the glitterball and used their magical dancer powers to pull it out of the house. They then took it back to the studios. Everyone was relieved. They could now dance on Strictly.
Anton was given a punishment of a score of no more than 2 from Craig Revel Horwood every week. The low scores didn’t put the people at home off voting for him, as he ended up winning that series and finally taking the Glitterball home!
Well, I don’t know about you, but I think that story from Bella is truly awesome! Mummy awards you a Glitterball Boo!
