Strictly microphones pick up gas audio from the contestants

We're in bits.

Strictly Come Dancing is back in full swing and with a few bumps in the road since the series began, they had a moment this week to laugh everything off.


When the live show airs, each contestant is fitted with a microphone for their performance, but while the music plays in the background, we never get to hear what they might pick up.

Contestant Dan Walker gave a real treat to his TikTok followers this week, showing fans just what the microphones really pick up when they strut their stuff on the dancefloor.

As he and his dancing partner Nadiya Bychkova took to the dancefloor last week, the pair did the cha cha cha to MC Hammer’s U Can’t Touch This, and their chat was actually gas.

Acting out the opening scene with real dialogue and singing along, the microphones picked the pair up actually doing it and we just love the second-hand embarrassment here.

With a school disco theme last week, Dan began the performance by asking Nadiya if she wanted to sit with him, with what we assumed was him miming the entire thing.

But of course, that wasn't the case at all as Dan was really acting out the entire thing, only we couldn't hear it because of the music playing in the background.

"Do you want to come and sit over here? You can sit, I mean there’s space… I don’t even want you there. Don’t come to close to me," Dan is heard asking Nadiya in his TikTok clip.

And while this was hilarious on its own, it only got funnier when it was followed up with Dan loudly and passionately singing along to the lyrics "she’s a super freak, super freak, she’s super freaky."


But nobody found it funnier than the official Strictly Instagram account as they posted a clip of their own of different contestants microphone pick up, completely outing the lot of them.
