Strictly’s Clara Amfo suffers awkward wardrobe malfunction during routine leaving viewers ‘on edge’

STRICTLY'S Clara Amfo suffered an awkward wardrobe malfunction during her routine tonight leaving viewers 'on edge'.

The Radio 1 DJ danced a spooky Viennese Waltz with her dance partner Aljaz Skorjanec complete with banqueting table and high backed chairs.

But within seconds of starting her routine, Clara's heel had snagged the bottom of her net skirt.

As she started to move around the dance floor, it trailed along the ground, and fans feared it would catch in her heel again and trip her up.

Taking to Twitter, one wrote: "That bit off Clara’s dress is making me nervous."

Another tweeted: "omg that rogue bit of Clara's dress is giving me anxiety."

A third added: "Didn't see much of Aljaz and Clara's dance cause I Couldn't take my eyes off of Clara's dress after she got her shoe caught thought she was gonna fall over!"

Viewers had earlier kicked off after the show was delayed by Boris Johnson's second national lockdown announcement.

The BBC One dancing show was supposed to air its second show of the series at 7.10pm tonight.

However, the Prime Minister's latest lockdown announcement was delayed all afternoon and didn't air until 6.50pm.

The national address was originally supposed to take place at 4pm before being moved to 5pm and then pushed back again until 6.30pm.

When he finally appeared on TV, Boris Johnson confirmed reports that the nation would be going back into a second lockdown from Thursday.
