Strictly star Karen gets strength from Pilates

Filed under: Pilates News — Cathy on October 18, 2016

Strictly Come Dancing pro Karen Clifton showed her strong side when she was filmed carrying out some difficult Pilates moves, just hours after it was announced that dance partner Will Young had pulled out of the show.

Rumours were rife that professional dancer Karen, and her dance partner for the show, singer Will Young, had come to blows causing him to dramatically quit the popular BBC dance competition due to ‘being sick of her always telling him what to do.’ However, Karen appeared to be taking it all in her stride, showing off her rock solid abs as she participated in an intense Pilates session.

The pro dancer released a silent video message in which she showed off her considerable Pilates talent, and flashed her abs, as she revealed that she was ‘staying positive’ on October 13th.

The defiant Instagram post, the first she made since the news came out was posted with the following message:

“Back to the grind … Pilates always does the job … still learning, still pushing, staying positive x.”

Karen, who has appeared as a professional dancer on Strictly for the past four years, steered away from making any direct reference to Strictly Come Dancing or now ex-dance partner Will Young on any of her social media accounts, and was praised by her fans for remaining positive amidst the speculation.

Karen is married to fellow Strictly Come Dancing dancer Kevin Clifton, who is also participating in this year’s show.
