Fab Fabrice enjoys his samba on Strictly

MIRACLE man Fabrice Muamba sat down with his family on Christmas Day to watch his Strictly Come Dancing performance on TV.

The former Bolton Wanderers’ player, whose heart stopped beating for 78 minutes after he suffered a cardiac arrest on the pitch earlier this year, took part in the Christmas Day special shown on BBC1.

Muamba, aged 24, performed a high-energy salsa with professional dancer Aliona Vilani, which won praises from the judges.

On Christmas Day, the father-of-one tweeted: “All the family sat in the front room waiting for my SCD (Strictly Come Dancing) debut. Hope you all enjoy it :-).”

He then added: “Hope you guys enjoyed my salsa on SCD had such a great time.”

The show’s judge Darcey Bussell described the pair’s performance as “incredible”

— although he didn’t win the show prize, which went to JLS singer JB Gill and professional dancer Ola Jordan.

Not bad for someone who was supposed to be too ill to play football!! Now perhaps the BN will find something interesting for its readers. The story of this bloke is getting a tad boring.

I saw this story and just knew that you would be the one to comment in your usual negative way. And as for being a tad boring, take a look in the mirror you sad little man.

you say boring ,I say monotonous . wonder if he is on incapacity/ or disability. If so what action the D.S.S will take, and please Hough 64. don't say he has worked for it. Like most footballers ,he probably thinks manual Labour is some bloke who lives in Barcelona, (it is a city in Spain ,in case you are not sure)
