Here at the Strictly Support Group, we love the underdog and we love the underdog even more when they’re paired with Anton. This year, it was the turn of Ruth to be paired with Anton and we got to see Anton do what he does best, making us smile through dance.
Over the past 8 weeks, these two have come and entertained us at home. Although their dances may not have won over the judges, each week they have won us over with their dancing.
Ruth has grown in confidence as a performer and we’ve watched her performances improve each week. She has shown us mums at home that we can dance. Her partnership with Anton has been a moment of Strictly magic and whoever paired them together deserves a gold medal. They will be missed in Blackpool and it’s always hard to say goodbye to a couple this close to such a major week, but we’re pretty sure they’ll remain the best of friends (and think Anton may even take her to Blackpool with him!)
Here are their best bits in picture form:
We’d like this post to become a tribute to Ruth and Anton. Comment down below with your messages of support for them and we’ll make sure they see them.
