Chizzy tells us she has been overwhelmed by the support she's received. She said: "Just want to say thank you to everybody who has supported me through my Strictly journey. I had a ball! I’m very sad it’s over and I don’t get to see Pasha." Chizzy adds of her current plans: "I’m having fun. I’m doing some interviews and looking forward to whatever’s next – and if anyone does see Pasha or knows his address please send it to me. I’ll be back next week with another video."
Chizzy previously told HELLO! Online about her close friendship with Pasha. She said: "He's such a lovely bloke. He's really funny as well and quite dry and quite quick-witted, and there are times where I go, 'Ah, I thought I was the funny one' but he's being equally funny. There's a lot of banter, where we are, not trying to top each other's jokes, but it's like, who's going to give up first?"
