Strictly Stars ‘Keep Up All Night By Glasgow Car Racing Bunch’
The Strictly stars were reportedly kept up all night in a hotel on the last leg of their UK tour by a group of car racers in Glasgow.
Police were in the area of the Kimpton Blythswood Square Hotel where the dancers were staying in Scotland on Saturday night. Sun reports.
The professional dancer on the tour, Nikita Kuzmin, took to his Instagram the next morning to complain that he only got 20 minutes of sleep.
He had been up since around 6am to film CBBC’s Saturday Mash-Up! program – after 32 shows in 24 days across the UK for the tour.
A source told the evening’s publication: “Some struggled to get forty nods but they didn’t let some idiot drivers dampen their spirits and were determined to end the tour on a high.”

Police Scotland said: ‘Officers attended and there was no trace.
“We are aware of the issues related to auto racing in the area and officers conduct regular patrols. This type of behavior is dangerous and unacceptable.’
Strictly has been contacted by MailOnline for comment.
The Strictly tour has toured the entire country featuring a variety of professionals, celebrities, and of course, the judges.
Since the year’s vintage, Helen Skelton, Molly Rainford and Fleur East have wowed audiences across the country.
It comes after judge Shirley Ballas made a dangerous move with Anton Du Beke last week during the Strictly live tour.
The maneuver involves being swung by the ankles and can often result in a very painful hit to the ground, hence the name.
While it is often performed on Dancing On Ice, ensuring additional medics are present, it is the first time it has been attempted on Strictly.

Despite the risks, Shirley, 62, had no reservations and put her life in the hands of Anton, 56.
During Wednesday’s show at Belfast’s SSE Arena, Shirley was asked by presenter Janette Manrara if there were any couples she’d like to dance with.
After Shirly jokingly said that she wanted Anton to “twist her by the ankles”, judge Craig Revel Horwood challenged her by responding that “there was no time like the present”.
Without hesitation, Shirley quickly got to her feet and walked out onto the dance floor with Anton.
Wow! From vintage of the year, Helen Skelton, Molly Rainford and Fleur East have wowed audiences across the country.
Despite their enthusiasm, however, the pair were unable to perfect the move right away, with Shirley landing face down on the first try.
Anton then quipped: ‘What did you have for lunch? I told you not to eat the stew. I thought my days were over with Ann Widdecombe!
However, they tried again, which also failed, leading Craig to sneer that it was a “complete dance disaster”.
Undeterred, the pair undertook another attempt and it was the third time that Anton was able to send Shirley spinning through the air.
Shirley’s decision to try the headbanger is even more courageous given that she just underwent a non-surgical facelift.
The former dancer underwent five NeoGen plasma treatments in recent months to reduce wrinkles and improve skin laxity after originally consulting with a doctor about going under the knife for a surgical facelift.
Speaking on Loose Women, she said: “I went to see the doctor to see if I would be okay for a facelift.” She was seriously thinking about it, good job on the knife. My doctor said he wasn’t comfortable doing that right now, so I did some research.
‘I tried the NeoGen plasma. She had a drooping chin, sun spots, she had veins. She wanted to see if she could tighten the skin.

‘I have to say, with my hand on my heart, that I am delighted with my result. I mean look at that jaw line girls come on 63 this year!
NeoGen uses ultra-high radio frequency to deliver a controlled pulse of plasma heat energy.
The pressurized pulse of nitrogen purges oxygen from the treatment area and the energy level depends on the depth of penetration into the skin and the associated levels of tightening and regenerative effects.
Fearing the stigma of undergoing procedures to improve their physical appearance, Shirley said everyone should just do what they want.
