Princess Beatrice looks on as Nancy says arrivederchi to 'Strictly'

The Strictly Come Dancing contestants had more than the judges to impress on Saturday.

The hit show’s audience had one very special guest - Princess Beatrice.

The 23-year-old was there to support her pal Holly Valance.



She beamed as the Australian actress took to the stage to perform a sultry routine to Tchaikovsky’s Swan Lake.

And the royal looked delighted as she watched Nancy Dell’Olio emerge from a coffin as part of the show’s Halloween spectacular.

But unfortunately, it wasn't Nancy's night.

After garnering only 14 points for her routine, the public decided it was time for her to hang up her dancing shoes.

Nancy accepted the public’s decision with grace.


“I'm going to miss a lot of it,” she said.

“It has given to me quite a lot – meeting incredible people and learning dancing… partly!

"I'm definitely going to keep dancing, because it is fantastic exercise, not only physically but for the mind, for everything.”
