Kate Garraway Is Strictly Come Dancing’s Sanjaya Malakar

garraway-anton.jpgIS there something of the Sanjaya Malakar about Kate Garraway?

Malakar achieved fame as the reed-voiced, limp-limped mumbler who outlasted the biggest amateur singing talents to come out of Des Moins and Wichita respectively in years, if not ever.

Garraway is the GMTV presenter who tripped over her feet and fell into a barrel of Ultrabrite toothpaste as a girl. Garraway cannot dance. She is blessed with less grace than George Galloway in a rhino suit.

Unlike Malakar, who defied the odds to survive week after week on American Idol, Garraway is not alone, having professional dancer Anton du Beke to lean on and, on occasion, tumble into.

There is a reason to believe that Anton is the one getting votes. The dancers are now bigger names in the pro-celebrity dance world than the celebrities. And Anton has certain charm and make-the-best-of-it spirit.

And so Garraway survives. She’s on the Mail’s page 3, those brilliant teeth chewing on her top lip. Indeed, this rhythmic nibbling is just about the only sign of movement above the Garraway big toe as she “stomps” through salsa. She is as “sexy as a coconut”.

And it becomes clear to us that such a vital decision as who should be king or queen of pro-celeb dancing circuit should not be left to the general public.

Not if it is to have any credibility…
