Sophie Ellis-Bextor's son told her not to fail on Strictly Come Dancing
Sophie Ellis-Bextor's eldest son, Sonny, told her that she would have his blessing to take part in Strictly Come Dancing on one condition - that she wouldn't embarrass him, she said:
"He said I could do it as long as I didn’t fail. Failing meant leaving first and happily I have got past that crucial moment. I’m so glad I didn’t embarrass him."
"My girlfriends are doolally for it but I had to check that it was OK with my husband, with our kids and with my family because I knew that I would need so many people’s support to allow me to indulge myself in this way."
Speaking to The Mirror, the singer-songwriter also spoke of her new album 'Wanderlust':
"'It’s not pop, it’s not dance. I made it with a live band and it’s got elements of folk, and rock and lots of ballads. I just needed to do it."
