Jon Kay scolded by BBC co-star as host makes blunder over Strictly exit

BBC Breakfast: Jon Kay mistakes Les Dennis for ‘Len’ Dennis

Jon Kay was quickly corrected by his co-star Sally Nugent on Monday morning after the host made a mistake when chatting about the latest Strictly Come Dancing exit.

As the duo discussed Les Dennis’ elimination, Jon accidentally called the presenter “Len”.

Before showing a clip of Les and his dance partner Nancy XU on the ballroom floor, Jon said: “If you haven’t watched last night’s Strictly Come Dancing yet. here’s a spoiler.

“We’re going to tell you who was kicked out. So just close your ears and eyes for a couple of seconds.”

“It was Les Dennis,” Sally chimed in. “The first to be voted out of this year’s competition. This was his Samba with his partner Nancy Xu.

“It failed to get him through the first round of eliminations…I honestly thought he would be in it for a while.”

“But the standard is so high, isn’t it?” Jon noted. “Some of them are too good. They’re gonna be like the professionals by week five.”

“Some of them are already,” Sally beamed.”

“At least Len can have his Saturday night’s at home now,” Jon said before Sally called out his mistake.

“Les,” the BBC Breakfast presenter corrected as Jon laughed: “Yes, I have got Lenny in my ear.”

Brushing off the error, Sally went on: “I still think Les will go and watch and take part in the group dances.”

On Sunday, Les and Nancy landed in the bottom two along with Nikita Kanda and Gorka Marquez.

However, after the pairs danced again, it was up to the judges to decide who was leaving the competition.

It was a unanimous decision as all four judges decided to save Nikita from elimination, meaning Les was sent packing.

When asked by Tess Daly about their time on the show, Les said: “I’ve had the best time, this lady has been amazing, a great teacher, she’s really put me through my paces.”

Turning to Nancy, Les added: ” I did as well as I could for you, I hope! That lot up there, I’m going to miss you so much.

“I really appreciate and understand the judge’s point of view, thank you so much (To Shirley) for giving me a 10 for entertainment. I hope I’ve entertained, that’s what I came here for. Strictly is the best and the people who put this on, you’re just all amazing!”
