Chris Ramsey and Karen Hauer found themselves in the dreaded dance-off last week where they were forced to dance for their survival on BBC the show. So far in the competition the comedian has scored a total of 287 points from the judges, placing him as the least likely star to win the show as all three other couples have scored more than him. But former Strictly Come Dancing professional Camilla Sacre-Dallerup has teased Chris may have what it takes to go all the way.
In an exclusive interview with Express.co.uk, Camilla was asked if the professionals can spot which celebrities will do well in the competition.
“Oh, yeah, definitely,” she revealed. “I mean, you can spot immediately if somebody has any sort of experience in moving on a stage.
“Just like awareness about their own body or where they’re not scared of throwing themselves in the deep end.
“Because you can feel self conscious when you start.”

Camilla explained the key to success for celebrities is having the confidence to go for it.
She explained: “If you think people aren’t scared of [being self conscious], if they’re just like, ‘Oh, it’s fine, if I look silly’, [they’ll do well].
“So comedians can be good at that, because they think ’It doesn’t matter if I look silly at first, because I know that I need to get through that so I can then feel confident doing this.’”
“So it’s kind of an attitude thing,” she added.
Does this mean Chris has what it takes to make it to the final and even lift the Glitterball Trophy?
The comedian has thrown himself into every dance and has had a great journey over the course of the show.
In the first week, Chris’ Cha Cha Cha scored 13 points and in week seven, he scored 34 points for his Street/Commercial routine.
The former Strictly professional continued: “You can learn quite a lot from the beginning, when you see them pick up steps and how they’re kind of processing it in their minds.”

Camilla won the BBC show in 2008 with Tom Chambers and she confessed she knew he would go far the very first time she met him.
“When I met my winning partner, Tom,” she began. “I kind of knew from the very first conversation I had with him.
“His mindset was one of a positive one and that was going to be half the battle.”
“He said he would dream of making the final and having that freestyle to dance like Fred Astaire,” she continued.

“I could feel that he was already thinking ahead.
“He was already like coming up with ideas of what he would like to do.”
The ballroom dancer and life coach went on to praise Strictly and revealed why she thinks it’s such a good show.
Camilla added: “This is what I say about strictly, it is very unique that you have everybody who works on the show, whether it’s in costumes, or producer or camera, or they’re at the top of their game, and that’s why it’s so good.”
