Strictly Come Dancing star Kym Marsh was eliminated from Strictly Come Dancing after the iconic Musicals Week last Saturday. The reason behind her and professional partner Graziano Prima being bottom of the leaderboard was apparently due to nerves, according to a body language expert. Darren Stanton has revealed what the Coronation Street actor was going through based on her mannerisms in week 11 of the battle for the Glitterball Trophy.

Speaking on behalf of Betfair Casino, Darren said: “When it was announced that Kym was the latest contestant to leave the show, she appeared absolutely devastated and showed expressions of feeling gutted and also very sad.”

He continued: “This week’s Strictly Come Dancing was fraught with nerves and tension as we approached the semi-final.

“Kym was particularly nervous this week and flashed a number of fear expressions as she performed.

“She also displayed a couple of fake smiles – not fake in a negative sense, but she was certainly masking her emotions.”

Handling the pressure of the competition proved to be a sticking point for the contestant who performed the Cha Cha Cha to the classic hit Fame.

Darren added: “I think she was incredibly nervous for some reason and was trying her best to hold things together since she was at the bottom of the leaderboard.

“There is definitely something that’s caused a shift in her emotions, as her rapport with Graziano also did not seem as tight this week.”

He summarised: “I think it’s more likely to be the pressure of the competition.”

Kym was in the bottom two alongside perennial dance-off contestant Molly Rainford and her partner Carlos Gu.

Motsi Mabuse and Craig Revel Horwood opted for Molly to stay in the competition, with Anton Du Beke electing to keep Kym in the show.

This left Shirley Ballas with the decisive vote and she decided it was time for the former Hear’Say singer to exit the series.

Appearing in the bottom two of the leaderboard for the fourth time seemed to irk the surviving CBBC presenter.

Darren revealed: “Molly was also demonstrating signs of stress in her facial expressions.

“She and her partner Carlos did not seem as synchronised as they once were, which perhaps suggests that the pressure of the competition is getting to Molly.”

Molly danced an impressive Charleston to Hot Honey Rag from Chicago, scoring 38 out of a possible 40 points.

Another body language expert has voiced their concern at the impact the dance-off experiences may be having on the pair.

Judi James said: “Carlos was crying tears of joy at their two 10s.

“Yet the viewer vote is now telling them little more than that, they’re not popular enough to go to the finals.”

She added: “Molly’s signature pseudo-infantile, excited and keen-to-please smiling rituals drained as her name was called.

“Her eyes closed, her lips clamped and her chin rose as though she’d been physically punched.”

Strictly Come Dancing returns on Sunday, December 11 on BBC One.
