Inside Strictly Come Dancing's VERY messy dressing room

The contestants of Strictly Come Dancing get dolled up to the nines as they take to the stage to deliver impressive routines every week.

But it appears the stars' dressing rooms are far from glamorous as a recent clip shared by make-up artist Bryony Blake reveals the participants' unkempt backstage area.

In the short video posted to the This Morning star's Instagram account on Saturday, the room - which is situated in Hertfordshire's Elstree Studios - is filled with scattered make-up, dirty towels and piles of rubbish.

Yikes! It appears the Strictly Come Dancing dressing rooms are far from glamorous as a recent clip shared by make-up artist Bryony Blake reveals the participants' unkempt backstage area

At the beginning of the clip, the media personality gives her followers a peek at the show's behind-the-scenes preparations as she shows off the hopefuls and professional dancers incredibly busy daily rota.

As the camera pans right, a series of hairpieces, disorganised desks and coffee cups are displayed.

The backstage area features individual vanity areas and a wooden table, which is occupied with empty bottles, boxes of tasty snacks and suitcases. 

Bryony later showcases head make-up artist Lisa Armstrong's desk, which is strikingly different to other parts of the room as her brushes and products are neatly stacked in a selection of clear toiletry bags.

The dressing room is understandably disordered as a total of 26 contestants and pros prepare to showcase their fancy footwork each week. 

On Saturday's edition of the series, Russian ballroom dancer Katya Jones lost her balance yet again as she burst into hysterical tears following Mike Bushell's quickstep.

The beauty, 30, descended broke into sobs as she fell to the floor following the energetic dance to Come On Eileen by Dexys Midnight Runners, which earned them one of their highest scores yet with 32 points out of 40.

Katya went onto say that she wanted to kiss Mike following the performance, which raised a few eyebrows among viewers, who noted her explosive kiss with comedian Seann Walsh last year.

As their performance came to an end, the dancer collapsed to the floor with exhaustion as she burst into tears. 

Repeatedly stating that she was 'so proud' of him, Katya stifled her sobs as they received critique from the judges, with Motsi Mabuse saying: 'Mike honestly the energy, the entertainment, you are a different man.

'I absolutely love it, you say hard work pays off I saw the dancing I saw the entertainment, you gonna get some good scores today!'

Shirley Ballas added: 'One of my fave thing sis laughing with you, but today it's a different kind of feeling, the most impressive part is when you kept up with everything, you have a good frame I think you've improved and I thought you were abs outstanding today.'
