Either Barbie was laying around with no clothes on or this is how Sophie Ellis-Bextor actually rehearses with Brendan Cole… the mind does wonder!

Yesterday afternoon, singer Sophie Ellis Bextor got bored of her professional partner Brendan Cole and traded him in for a Barbie Doll during rehearsals.

The Murder on the Dance Floor singer poster a snap of Barbie practicing her dance routing – the disturbing part was that Barbie was totally naked and had no clothes on – so was the other doll she was dancing with.

Along with posting the picture on Twitter, the caption read: “@TheBrendan_Cole woo hoo! Been teaching Barbie over the weekend. Her waltz hold is really coming on.”

Either Barbie had no clothes on in the first place, or this is an indication as to how Brendan and Sophie get down to business in rehearsals. We honestly wouldn’t like to think.

Meanwhile, Queen of Numbers and fellow celebrity dancer on this year’s Strictly Rachel Riley thought the funny picture was “brilliant”.

But, not everyone had a sense of humour as one Twitter user wrote: “Think there’s something disturbing about you and naki dolls lol.”

Another Tweeter, who was clearly wishful thinking wrote: “If you both dance in your undies, you’ll definitely get 10s!”

After seeing some of the replies, Sophie took to Twitter to post another picture of a doll, this time she had her show clothes on – phew! Whatever happens in rehearsals stays in rehearsals.


She wrote alongside the picture: “Jeez you guys are so prudish!

“Barbie just *rehearses* nude. Here’s her look for show day… ”

Strictly Come Dancing returns to BBC One this Friday (September 27) at 9pm.
