Strictly’s Angela Rippon leaves fans taken aback as she returns to day job
Angela Rippon teases return of Rip Off Britain
Angela Rippon surprised fans after she finished hours worth of Strictly Come Dancing 2023 training before immediately heading to the BBC to continue working.
On Tuesday (26 September) Angela revealed that she was working on the new series of Rip-Off Britain, which is due to arrive on BBC One on Monday.
In a new clip posted to social media, the 78-year-old told fans that she was working hard to commentate on various segments of the investigative television show.
However, fans were impressed that the presenter was in the recording booth after spending a whopping six hours training alongside Strictly partner Kai Widdrington, 29.
Posting a video to her 11,500 Instagram followers, Angela said: “Hi. Well, you’ve joined me at, I suppose what you call is my other day job at the moment because I’ve just done six hours of training with Kai, my partner for Strictly Come Dancing.

“And now I’m here in a recording studio, recording the commentary for films, for the brand new series of Rip-Off Britain – the consumer programme I do for the BBC.”
The author went on to reveal that the show would return to airwaves next week at 9.15am on BBC One.
She continued: “So no Waltzes or Tangos or Quicksteps for the moment. Just Rip-Off Britain again, fighting for the rights of consumers.”
Since the promotional video was posted across social media, fans of Angela and the ballroom contest have flocked to the comments section to commend her for her “endless” energy levels.
One wrote: “Find you so inspirational. Rooting for you and Kai in Strictly.”

A second said: “Wow, I don’t know how you do it! Your energy is endless.”
“Don’t you ever get tired?” questioned another commenter.
Another replied: “Good for you ladies and with Strictly best wishes for it certainly you have still got it.”
Angela and her partner Kai have been keeping social media updated with their movements, as well as posting behind-the-scenes content regarding their training routines.
Earlier this week, the pair posted a joint video which marked their return to training after embarking on their quest for the Glitterball Trophy.
“Here we are, back in training,” the former Britain’s Got Talent star opened before the iconic newsreader said: “Back in the rehearsal room, Monday morning. New music, new dance, you’ve been working on the choreography, haven’t you?”
Kai then went on to say that the new dance they were practising would be “a bit different” from the pair’s Cha Cha Cha to Shirley Bassey’s To Get The Party Started. The latter earned them a score of 28 from the judges.
Ahead of Saturday’s Strictly show, it has been revealed that Kai and Angela have been working hard to perfect a foxtrot routine, which will be performed to You make Me Feel So Young by Frank Sinatra.
Strictly Come Dancing is on BBC One at 6.20pm on Saturday.
